I have taught music for 10 years and believe students should get to play what they want to play! Students are asked to come up with a list of songs and/or artists they would love to play. Through teaching chords, note reading and theory, the song possibilities are endless! I also can help the aspiring singer/mandolin player to be able to both play and sing simultaneously.

My approach to mandolin focuses on fun, uplifting music-making while developing good technique. This allows for instant fun with simultaneous development. In my lessons, we will cover mandolin playing as well as the mandolin's place in various ensembles as well as good jam etiquette that will make playing with others as fun and satisfying as possible. My favorite styles include bluegrass, Irish, old-time, jazz, classical, and rock-n-roll. We will really nerd out on what makes the mandolin so special!

About Christopher

Hi there! I'm a lifelong musician with ten years of specific mandolin focus. The mandolin has brought me great joy in connecting me with communities of musicians in all different styles and genres. It's a fun little instrument, and I look forward in to getting started with you!

I've been teaching Mandolin for 8 years and my students have gone on to meet their performance and playing goals. I use a variety of methods and books from beginning methods to more advanced methods for other players. Each student is different so I try to evolve to meet their specific needs and learning styles. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you! I plan and offer yearly student performances to give students a practical application to their instruction. I teach mandolin for a variety of styles from bluegrass and celtic to Italian Classical, I strive to help each student to be as well rounded as possible!

Stellar teacher! He really knows his stuff and how to convey it!
Justine
I am an adult who has no experience with any type of instrument and was very nervous and intimidated at first. Then I met with Michael, and though there was a ton of information we had to go through, he really made me feel at ease. He has the knowledge, patience, and understanding I was really looking for in a teacher and I'm so happy I found him!
Holly
With his flexibility and willingness to accommodate us my daughter learned a lot from him. He was a wonderful teacher and a great person to do business with.

"Good instruction at an affordable rate which made it a really great value. Victor was helpful reinforcing mechanics, suggesting practice exercises and introducing good songs to learn. Additionally, he seems to have a deep knowledge of bluegrass history and is flexible in his instruction which is important given the limitations of online learning."
