About Geoff

I totally enjoyed my class with Geoff. We immediately started my lesson with tuning the ukulele. Then we went over the cords and strumming. I have been researching on playing the ukulele and his explanation on the strumming was a lot better than the book. He is teaching me how to play by listening to the notes which is great because I would be able to play the Hawaiian music for my hula classes. In addition, his studio is only a 5 minute drive from my house, which means I don’t have to deal with traffic.

Private Mandolin Teacher

Mandolin is one of my favorite instruments. I have played it for the past thirteen years and it's been one of the most fulfilling skills I have.

In mandolin lessons, we will study technique, scales, chords, sight reading and improvising. We will learn tunes and play them together to focus your ability to accompany as well as take the lead.

I am a new student -- and have never learned to play an instrument. I was encouraged by medical providers to learn an instrument as part of certain of my cognitive therapies. My instrument (the mandolin) was a gift from my son.
I have been fortunate to work with Sean O. G. Burns over the past few months. His style is perfect for my needs. He is patient, and leads with a gentle push -- no pressure! Sean is incredibly talented in his own right musically, and has talents - I'm sure, well beyond my needs -- I see him as an excellent teacher for all ages!
Sara J.
Sean is the music theory graduate assistant at the University of Redlands and is extremely knowledgeable about the subject. He is also a great composer and plays multiple instruments. I would highly recommend him as a music teacher or tutor.

Blake really enjoyed it & Robert was patient & very informative.
Mikhaela
Although I'm a fairly new learner, I chose Robert as a teacher because he teaches everything from beginner to advanced. I'm glad I did -- his depth of knowledge is clear and he understands my questions quickly and can answer from different angles to make sure I understand. After just two lessons I feel like I've gained a lot already and am excited to continue learning.

"Highly recommended teacher

I am in my mid-30s and picking up Mandolin for the first time without much background in music. Scott has been really great to learn from, teaching me not only the basics of scales and chords but he also has me working on songs and solos which I never thought I'd be able to do so early. I would highly recommend Scott."

"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."
