I learned to play the mandolin because it is a very common instrument that guitarist double on in musical productions. From there I became interested in playing Irish folk music and bluegrass and formed an Irish folk group.

When teaching Mandolin I like to use these styles to teach students to read written music and chords so they can confidently join in on any jam and have fun.

Mel has done a fantastic job getting me started on Mandolin. I have a tiny bit of musical background, and he has been able to help me quickly move to where I need to be in order to challenge me to grow. I highly reccomend him.

Mel is incredible and a very thoughtful instructor. He takes the time to make sure you understand the concepts and works with you to make sure you progress in an efficient logical way. He really spends the time with you and you feel like he is as committed to your learning experience as you are. I would recommend him for anyone looking for lessons and I am excited to keep studying the fiddle and violin with him.

"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."
