As a mandolinist, I've performed with the Tweetsie Trio (band) at many venues in Northeast Tennessee. While mandolin is not my expertise, I will provide foundational skills on the mandolin, and each lesson is tailored to each student's goals and interests. Required materials: a mandolin, a pencil, and a notebook. Please feel free to send me an inquiry about the lesson.

About Easton N.

My name is Easton Nguyen, and I am a vocal /piano /guitar/ mandolin instructor. I will earn a Bachelor's degree in Vocal Music Education from East Tennessee State University in May 2020.

I've been playing the piano for over 16 years, and I was trained classically for 13 years. I am currently holding an accompanist position at Holston Valley Unitarian Universalist Church in Gray, TN. My current position will end by the end of May 2020 due to my relocation to Boulder Metro Area in Colorado (tentatively).

At East Tennessee State University, I participated in two vocal ensembles: BucsWorth and the award-winning ETSU Chorale. Besides my participation in vocal ensembles, I've also accompanied on the piano for ETSU studio vocal classes and University High School Chorus.

In Johnson City, I was also a band member of the Tweetsie Trio, active from December 2018 to December 2019. I was the guitarist and the mandolinist in the band, and I was also a back-up vocalist. Tweetsie Trio has performed in various venues throughout Northeast Tennessee including the Tri-Cities Airport and the Johnson City Cardinals Stadium.

I am currently based in Johnson City, but not for long! I will be moving to Northern Colorado in May 2020, but I will begin taking students in Boulder and Fort Collins areas. At this time, online lessons will ONLY be provided for students due to many health risks of the Covid-19 pandemic. If any online student wants to consider in-person classes in the long run, please be aware that I will only travel throughout the Boulder and Fort Collins areas.

Please feel free to send me an inquiry about anything! I am very excited to get to know my students, and I will do anything to help my students succeed!

Easton did a great job connecting with an 8 year old and teaching him guitar. It was a great first lesson.

Easton was on time, and we were very thrilled with our first lesson. He related well to children and had a great rapport and teaching style.

Ok so simply put, Easton is an amazing teacher. I started learning guitar because of Easton. He helped me pick up a guitar and chose great songs for me to play. He cared a lot about my decision to play guitar and supported me by encouraging me to play often despite my struggles at first. Even when he moved five hundred miles away, he recorded videos of lessons that kept me going. He is a very talented musician who has some great advice for anyone learning the guitar or piano. He also cares very deeply for his students and even puts his own time aside to help even when he doesn't need to. Now, thanks to him, I spend hours every day learning new songs and playing them on my guitar because of what he taught me. He's a great teacher and I am proof of his incredible work and I hope more people come to him for music lessons because he is an amazing teacher.

Easton is exactly what my son needed, he is Sweet and he certainly knows how to work with children. Being a college student, Easton has all the knowledge freshed (music major), but most important is how he applies that knowledge. My son is 10 years old and not an easy kid to deal with, but Easton captured his heart first, and that was all my son needed to be attentive and willing to learn. He can either play piano or guitar which is a plus. I would not change him for anyone, he is very affordable as well.
