Lesson Details

Mandolin

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate

While the mandolin isn’t my first instrument, it quickly became my favorite and most proficient. Take up lessons with me, and you can jump into bluegrass, country, folk, classical, jazz or even rock tunes. Strumming & picking both play a significant roll in playing Mando, and you’ll see quick results from my lesson plans!

I’ve been playing music since 2001, and performing in bands since 2010. My students LOVE lesson night. The key is meeting students where they are and listening to them; a concept that gets overlooked. Parent feedback has been amazing, and watching the student’s progress has been priceless.

Whether you’re taking mandolin, guitar, banjo, or whatever instrument you enjoy, you’ll find lessons with me to be both enjoyable and educational. My approach involves both A. Learning Songs (the what) and B. Music Theory (the why); an important balance. I look forward to watching you fall in love with your instrument :)

Lucas has been working with my daughter for nearly a year, and she's really loving it! As a typical 6 year old, she doesn't have the longest attention span, but Lucas is patient with her, and that has helped her advance with confidence. We recommend!
