Mandolin · In studio
I took mandolin lessons from Mr Sweet when I was a student at UMass Amherst. At that time, he was teaching at the Red Barn in Amherst. He's moved to a new location in Granby, MA and that's where you'll also find the Mandolin Orchestra and a few other great mandolin projects he's got going. Basically, I learned everything I know from this guy. Mostly about the mechanics of playing the instrument, but a whole lot about music theory related to the mandolin, history of the instrument and music and lots more. We were constantly going out to concerts and performing at local festivals and other places around the area. If you want to learn mandolin you really should think seriously about contacting Mr. Sweet.

Mandolin
The best teacher I have ever had

I am an adult who has never taken music lessons. My girlfriend gave me a mandolin for Christmas and I looked around online before I found Mr Sweet. As I live in Maine, I can't make regular lessons in person, so we do lessons online using Google+ Hangouts, which is really convenient for me. He's teaching me everything about playing the instrument, also how to improvise, play chords, some music theory, lots of music history. He's patient, kind and bolsters my self esteem with lots of positive comments and useful criticism. I recommend him to everyone I know that wants to play mandolin. I am now playing mandolin in a band!

I am a laid back teacher, who focuses on having fun while teaching drums and/or percussion. After learning what the goals of the student are I will help them to reach those goals along with teaching them basics of snare drum, because it is basis for reading all percussion music.

Lincoln A.

Greenfield, MA

About Lincoln

I am a professional jazz musician, actively teaching and performing in the Western Massachusetts music scene. In addition to years of live experience as well as teaching lessons, I have a Master's of Music degree in Jazz Performance from the University of Southern Maine, as well as a BA in Jazz Performance and Composition from Hampshire College in Amherst, MA.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons are catered directly to each student as an individual. Of course, the building blocks of music provide a basic foundation for every musician, but beyond that the possibilities are endless. The best way
to approach each lesson is from your own perspective of what YOU want to learn. I can assess your strengths and weaknesses and help you get to the point where you can play what you want, when you want. My background in jazz and theory allows me to teach any style, and explain what is happening within the music, rather than just present a sheet of chords or scales. Ear training plays a big role in our lessons, with the goal of you being able to pop in a CD and be playing along with the song within a few bars. Of course, it takes work too! But my job is to make the "work" less like work and more like fun. Looking forward to meeting you, and playing music together!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Extra room for Music: all instruments, amps, seating for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
When traveling to students' home, I will bring my guitar, portable speakers w/ iPod hook-up, and any teaching papers I may need. The student is in charge of their own guitar / amp, etc.

*** Specialties ***
I enjoy all styles of music, and am capable of teaching all genres at a proficient level. I am primarily a jazz guitarist, and that is my area of expertise as well as what I am most passionate about. My knowledge in jazz gives me a broad knowledge of music theory - i.e. scales, modes, harmony, chord progressions, reading music, etc.

fantastic!

Lincoln is very knowledgable in music theory. His style is relaxed and is willing to adjust to my needs as a learner. It's been lots of fun after just three lessons!

Juliana K.

Broad Brook, CT

About Juliana

I, Ana, was born in a small town on the border of Quebec, Canada and Vermont, USA. At age 4, my mother began teaching me how to play piano. Since then, I've always enjoyed music. It's been my creative outlet. Throughout high school, I participated in competitions, concerts and master classes. After high school, I completed a two-year program at Vanier College, Canada in Classical Piano Performance. I've been teaching young children, teens and adults for 5+ years.
Last year I left 18 students and my piano studio in Canada and move to CT to be with my husband. Now I'm looking to share my love
of music with those around me here. Music is a part of everyone! We're never too old or too unlearned in music to express ourselves in this manner! I look forward to helping you become a better musician!

From the moment we met Ana we knew she was the perfect fit for our daughter. She is extremely knowledgeable and patient and always comes with a smile on her face. She has a special gift and my daughter is blessed to have her as a teacher.

It was a first lesson. She had listened to me in terms of email communication and brought studies that made sense for me (as I am new to lessons but not new to music or the piano). The lesson went by fast, which usually means something was good, as I see it. I have a good plan for practice until the next lesson. She is a very pleasant person.
