Charles M. Maple Plain, MN

I've been teaching The Mandolin for 17 Years, and have been playing the Mandolin for 24 years. After teaching 1000's of students, you realize that no student is ever the same. Everyone learns differently. Each student is inspired in a different way. Everyone has different strengths and weaknesses in a multitude of different area's. So weather you starting from scratch, perfecting a solo for new album, learn by ear, or only read music, I can tailor my teaching style and curriculum to you. :)

Mandolin · In home
Nick is great musician and a fun teacher to work with. He was my mandolin instructor in New York this past year. I'm a professional singer who was looking to pick up a new instrument, and Nick was a great teacher. He has a lot of creative strategies for teaching and working with different learning styles, and is great at letting the student set the tone of the lesson. He's extremely knowledgeable, and more important, his love of music and teaching shines through--his lessons are fun!

Nick is a wonderful teacher. He is patient, encouraging, fun, and knowledgeable. Nick also has a lot of tricks up his sleeve, and understands how to connect with a student's individual needs and wishes. I've made progress on my instrument that wouldn't have been possible with Nick's guidance and advice.

If you're looking for a great guitar teacher, take lessons with Nick!

I have been teaching mandolin since 2004. I focus on proper technique, while also developing ear training and improvisation skills.I basically want to make sure the student has fun and enjoys the experience of learning and playing, while developing their skills on mandolin.
