Private Mandolin Teacher

Are you interested in being able to confidently play lead and rhythm parts in a band? Want to learn to write songs? Want to learn to just strum along to your favorite records by yourself?

I will teach you or your child all of the knowledge and tools needed to do whatever your dream is on your instrument. My aim is to help every student achieve their personal goals on their instrument within the context of a relaxed and patient environment that promotes a love of music!

I achieve this by:

1) Individualizing lesson plans so that each student stays engaged and learns in the style that is best for them as learners.

2) Ensuring that students learn BOTH how to play their instrument as well as the theory behind what they are playing. This creates a more well-rounded musician that is capable of problem solving on their instrument and being able to play in a variety of settings.

I have been playing music for over 10 years and teaching private lessons since 2014. I ...

First of all, Chris has a quite a bit of patience.   This may seem like an odd start to a review… But from parents of an 11 year old girl who has a hard time to sit still or to focus, Chris gets an A+ for his ability to corral her energy and direct it towards her playing. She has learned a lot, and retains a lot, given the short time that Chris has been teaching her. She looks forward to every class!!
Eric
Excellent experience with Chris. Jumped right in and had a clear path for my growth.
Jason
Chris is awesome! He is able to customize lessons based on my level. He has definitely taken my self-taught guitar playing to the next level. Friends and family have commented that my playing has gotten better since taking lessons from Chris.

am private music teacher specializing in stringed instruments. I teach and play violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, ukulele and piano. Currently, I am looking for new students that live in our neighborhood. If you know of anyone that would like to enrich their lives by playing a stringed instrument, please have them contact me.

About Victor

I believe that any student will practice more if he or she likes the music they are playing. Periodically I will ask a student to give me a name of a piece of music that they would like to learn how to play. I notate it for them, often simplifying the rhythm and chords in Finale NotePad and give it

I started playing acoustic guitar when I was seven years old (off and on). I then started traveling more and found the mandolin to be so much easier to carry around and so much fun, it was hard to stop playing it. I have been playing and teaching mostly bluegrass, old time, Irish, blues, and swing jazz styles for many years. I have taught both privately and have also done various workshops at festivals. I have taught multiple years for instance at the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival in PA, The Traditions week at Common Ground on the Hill Festival in MD, etc
My students learn to have fun with music. Students can work on rhythms, melodies, improvisation, song writing, arranging tunes, music theory, getting into and/or hanging on in a jam session, etc.

About Tara

I have a Masters in Education as well as having spent many years performing, teaching in one on one and group settings both privately and at music camps and festivals. I play and teach bluegrass, old time, Irish, and swing jazz styles. I like my students to really enjoy playing music and their less
