Mandolin · In studio
I took mandolin lessons from Mr Sweet when I was a student at UMass Amherst. At that time, he was teaching at the Red Barn in Amherst. He's moved to a new location in Granby, MA and that's where you'll also find the Mandolin Orchestra and a few other great mandolin projects he's got going. Basically, I learned everything I know from this guy. Mostly about the mechanics of playing the instrument, but a whole lot about music theory related to the mandolin, history of the instrument and music and lots more. We were constantly going out to concerts and performing at local festivals and other places around the area. If you want to learn mandolin you really should think seriously about contacting Mr. Sweet.

Mandolin
The best teacher I have ever had

I am an adult who has never taken music lessons. My girlfriend gave me a mandolin for Christmas and I looked around online before I found Mr Sweet. As I live in Maine, I can't make regular lessons in person, so we do lessons online using Google+ Hangouts, which is really convenient for me. He's teaching me everything about playing the instrument, also how to improvise, play chords, some music theory, lots of music history. He's patient, kind and bolsters my self esteem with lots of positive comments and useful criticism. I recommend him to everyone I know that wants to play mandolin. I am now playing mandolin in a band!

About Lincoln

fantastic!

Lincoln is very knowledgable in music theory. His style is relaxed and is willing to adjust to my needs as a learner. It's been lots of fun after just three lessons!
Stephen O. Brattleboro, VT

About Stephen

I am a recent graduate from UMass Amherst. I got my Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Performance. I have been playing the guitar for about 11 years now and have been formally trained in Jazz. I can also play Bluegrass, Rock, Acoustic, Country, Pop, Fusion, Funk, Jam and Singer/Songwriter. Any of these genres I'm able to teach and give insight about playing and performing. I've been gigging and giving lessons for a few years now and I will utilize my experiences to give the student the best musical education on the specific style or genre that wants to be learned.

About Pete

I'm a full time musician with over 20 years of experience in both teaching and performing. I currently travel up and down the east coast, from ME to FLA, with a band called Maxxtone. When I'm local, I sing and play guitar in an acoustic duo at various clubs, restaurants and private functions. I perform classical music for wedding ceremonies and private functions. I also teach private lessons on guitar, trumpet and trombone at the Wilbraham - Monson Acadamy. I started my teaching career at The Guitar Acadamy in Agawam when I was still in college studying music. I've since been teaching private lessons at students homes for the past 15 years. I really enjoy seeing my students grow in their musical capabilities, and I even have some former students that have gone on to have musical careers ...

The 10 Best Songs for Sight Singing Practice
Sight singing practice is an excellent way to round out your skills as a vocalist. Here, Saint Augustine, FL teacher Heather L. shares the 10 best songs to get started with...   Attending my alma mater, Westminster Choir College in Princeton, New Jersey, was a lot like going to sight singing boot camp. Every student who attends, despite his or her major or instrument, must sing for four years in the college's professional choirs. Though many organists and pianists are annoyed at f
Guitar Theory Basics: Understanding Keys
Curious about keys? Guitar teacher Alexander A. breaks down the guitar theory behind understanding keys... What key am I in? For most of the music we play this simple question yields a simple answer. I think the REAL question here is “why.” Why is a piece of music considered to be in the key of G major, or A minor, or any other key? I was in my 3rd semester of Jazz Harmony at Berklee when the instructor stumped the entire class with this question. I think the answer will surprise you. The
What Are the Best Violin Brands for Beginners?
When you’re first starting to play an instrument, it's important to find a compromise between affordability and good quality. It’s not always smart to buy the cheapest model available, as not only is this likely to produce a poor sound and hamper any incentive to practice or progress, but it's likely to lose a lot of value on the resale market - it's worth bearing in mind that student models will be resold at some later date, whether you're moving onto something better, or to another instrument
