I have been taking online lessons with Robin for the past few months, and have been amazed at how quickly I have learnt the ukulele! I am able to play some of my favorite songs. Robin is fantastic, she is always on time, is very patient, attentive and informative, her teaching style is very easy to follow and leaves me feeling motivated rather than out of my depth. Highly recommended.

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!

About Laura

I began teaching while working toward my undergraduate degree, and began offering private lessons in 2010. I have taught students ranging in age from four through adult and believe strongly in targeting each student's experience to his or her individual interests, abilities, and personality. I believe in making lessons fun and giving students a say in how their arts education progresses. I encourage and inspire and welcome input at every step of the way. I balance all of this with a solid grounding in the subject, be it music or theater, and take care to ensure that students understand each concept. Come see how enjoyable, satisfying, and enriching the arts can be!
