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!

I have been taking guitar lessons from Brian for a little over a year. His style is both patient and encouraging. I admire his ability to "hear the music"....every note ! I am an adult who has wanted to learn guitar for many years and thrilled to have found Brian. He truly displays a desire to teach at a pace that is comfortable. I would recommend him to folks of all ages.

Bass Guitar · In studio
Tim came recommended from a friend. I had been playing guitar and bass for close to 20 years, without ever taking a single lesson. I'd been focusing on bass for the last 10 years, and decided that I wanted to take my bass playing to the next level - theory, reading music, etc.

Fast forward a year later, and I'm reading and learning music not only from sheet music, but from jazz charts - something I hadn't even imagined going in. I've gained a new appreciation for the music as a result.

Everyone that knows me well has commented on the improvement in my overall bass playing, from the wife to people who I've spent years jamming with. In short, if you're looking to expand your abilities, you can't go wrong with Tim.

What Does "Pitchy" Mean? (Plus 4 Steps to Improve)
What does "pitchy" mean, and what should you be doing if you receive that critique? Here, Gambrills, MD voice teacher Shannon F. shares her tips...   “You're a little pitchy.” Ok, Paula Abdul.
