I like to make learning an instrument fun and easy to fit into your schedule! If you're an adult finally getting around to learning your dream instrument or a child following your passion of playing music I tailor your lessons specifically to you. We look at what you want to play, pick specific songs that you want to learn, and learn the techniques you need to play these songs. It sounds simple, but it's so effective and much more fun to learn this way!

You can choose to learn by ear, notation, tab, or a combination of these. We will play standard tunes, and any of your favorites from Bill Monroe to Chris Thiles, and beyond. A mandolin is also great for strumming and singing.
