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!

Piano · In studio
Ms. Judy is my son's first private piano teacher and one of his favorite ones. Patrick, my son, started learning piano late at about 11 years old and he could start playing pieces fairly quickly within months. She is very patient, mindful, and thoughtful. When Ms. Judy needed to move over to east coast, she provided a list of local piano teachers and even recommended one who would fit best with Patrick. With the strong background knowledge from her, Patrick continues learning piano with the recommended teacher and enjoys playing harder classical pieces. I strongly recommend Ms. Judy as a piano teacher!!!

About Stephen

I am a recent graduate from UMass Amherst. I got my Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Performance. I have been playing the guitar for about 11 years now and have been formally trained in Jazz. I can also play Bluegrass, Rock, Acoustic, Country, Pop, Fusion, Funk, Jam and Singer/Songwriter. Any of these genres I'm able to teach and give insight about playing and performing. I've been gigging and giving lessons for a few years now and I will utilize my experiences to give the student the best musical education on the specific style or genre that wants to be learned.
