Private Mandolin Teacher

I've been teaching mandolin for 4 years helping students develop a love for the instrument and learn more about music along the way. Mandolin is an often underappreciated instrument which is fantastic for both melodic and rhythmic playing styles. Within the first few lessons you'll have a solid base of strumming, picking, chord changes and melodic playing, with a couple simple songs too. Moving on from there I will craft lessons to move you toward a "goal song," making sure to cater your progress to your needs while keeping a focus on good technique. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!

Great first lesson! Ryan broke down into very digestible parts both the history of the banjo and how a beginner should approach the banjo from the very start. Well done!

He's a great instructor who is very patient.

I enjoyed my first lesson with Ryan
and am looking forward to my next one. I feel like I good a great introduction to Banjo. I am a complete beginner with no real musical talent so I might be his biggest challenge to date. However, I am determined to be successful He was patient and gave me just the right amount of things to practice. I am looking forward to making progress under his guidence.

Jonathan is truly outstanding. I was fortunate enough to meet him and begin working on guitar again with him in person when he lived in Virginia. He was so helpful I have continued lessons online and I continue to feel the quality and what I'm getting out of the lessons is as good as when we were able to be in the same room. The best thing I can probably say is that I have really enjoyed learning from such an accomplished musician while never feeling intimidated or thinking, "he must think I really stink at this!" He's very supportive and will make you a better player...whatever that means to you.

Jonathan is a wonderful teacher. I would recommend him to others for lessons.

Great instructor...very good at breaking things down to help you succeed.

Online Mandolin Teacher

A two-time Acoustic Music Seminar participant and a graduate of the Berklee College of Music, mandolinist Jake plays and writes music that is galvanized by roots music from around the globe. Music has taken him all over the country, yet he was introduced to acoustic music in his hometown, the greatest bluegrass city of all time: Akron, Ohio. Jake joined his uncle’s bluegrass band (The Blue Ribbon Bluegrass Band) playing mandolin and spent the next two years refining his craft. In his years with Blue Ribbon Bluegrass Band, Jake recorded two CDs and played countless gigs all over the northeastern United States. After being urged by his friends and family, Jake applied to the Berklee College of Music, where he graduated in 2017 with a degree in Mandolin performance and American Roots Music, mentored by greats such as Joe Walsh, Maeve Gilchrist, David Wallace, and Matt Glaser. He now tours nationally with the band The Page Turners.

I love to teach and hope to make you a more conscious

Looking for someone to help you reach that next level? Whatever your stringed instrument, I can guide you there. From the rank basics to traditional tunes, to timing and tone, technique and theory, I can show you what you need to make your journey easier. Rely on my 15 years of music teaching experience to save you countless hours of bewilderment and frustration!

My journey as a musician which began at the age of 8 has now carried me to 48 states and a dozen countries, including 4 tours in continental Europe. I spent 7+ years performing, recording, and giving workshops with talented acoustic acts based in Nashville and the southeast. I am lucky to have been involved and contributed to a handful of IBMA and Grammy-nominated albums.

Increasingly, however, I turn my focus toward private teaching.
I find great joy and pride in helping a student reach their goals and surprise themselves with their own potential.
Go ahead and get in touch, and let's try a session together!

First lesson. I think this is going to be great. Super nice to work with.
Tony C.
I am greatly encouraged by my progress. Except for the limitations of my hands, I want to continue with Bryan. Many thanks. Until January, have a Happy Thanksgiving and a Blessed Christmas.
Ben
Bryan elevated my guitar playing in just a few short lessons to a level I never even thought I would reach. His lessons are very relaxed and he works on what you want to focus on.

If there is a specific song you want to learn, beginner, intermediate, or advanced, Bryan has a version for you. He is an awesome teacher, a great guy, and an outstanding guitar player. Booking that first lesson with him was the best thing I could have ever done for my guitar playing.

"I took mandolin lessons from Tara for about a year and a half, and I can't say enough good things about her. I was a complete beginner when I started with her, and now I feel prepared and comfortable when I play at jams. Tara taught me a wide repertoire of tunes. She taught me ways to play different chords, how to move chords, how different players may use different chords in different styles, how to read guitar chords, how to adapt when guitars use capos, and how to simplify or add chords. She has really good insight on how to start improvising and taking breaks. I think she adapts her teaching to use the technique that will help make the concept make sense to you. She is a lot of fun to learn from, and it is super inspiring to watch her play. Tara is an awesome teacher, and I highly recommend her!"

"Andrew really understands the mandolin keyboard and he conveyed the many ways to shape a chord to achieve a nice sound and the variety in playing that could be introduced by altering chord structures/ positions. He stressed improvisational playing around a key signature, the blues or the pentatonic scales. He stressed development of fingering and using them all in exercises to develop strength and speed. he was very responsive to questions and seemed genuinely pleased when we "got" the lesson. It wasn't just a boring reitieration of a practice lead sheet."
