Derek is a very knowledgable instructor, easy to talk to, and I found his teaching technique is very motivating. He set realistic practice goals for the next session, which will require me to do my part, but that's the reason we show up, to learn how to play a musical instrument.
I highly recommend him.

Max was a great teacher. I walked in wanting to learn better soloing techniques for my bluegrass guitar. With Max's help, I got over several humps in my playing and solo creating skills. If you're looking for a solid teacher that listens to what you have to say, Max is your teacher.

Max is a great instructor and works really well with our 12 year old son. Our son looks forward to guitar lessons every week. Max's easy going attitude makes lessons fun and our son enjoys the jam sessions.

Online Mandolin Teacher

You decide what we learn--we can start with learning to read and play from a book for steady, foreseeable progress and goals, or simply start with the chords of your favorite songs from the radio--we can even learn tab--or all three! In our first lesson, we will discuss what your personal goals are for the mandolin and formulate a plan for your individual success, based on the type of music YOU want to learn.

Students describe me as patient, fun, and encouraging, and as your mandolin teacher, you can expect me to work with you from where you are, and with subjects and curriculum that match what you are interested in learning. *Please check my availability before signing up, as my time slots are quickly filling up!* I look forward to meeting you!

"Mark is a talented musician who plays and teaches multiple stringed instruments. His lessons are always informative and supportive. They are driven by the student’s interest, so anything you want o learn— styles of music, how to do a particular technique, music theory— you can bring to class. And every now and then he organizes a recital— terrifying but great practice!"

"I absolutely LOVE taking lessons with David! It is the best part of my week!
Being a somewhat shy individual and an adult student, I was really nervous to begin music lessons with a stranger.. David put me at ease from day one. Each thirty minute session is packed with just enough material to keep me occupied during practice through the week and eager for more by the time our next lesson comes around. His instrument knowledge is phenomenal, and it makes the experience so much more fun to have David accompany my mandolin playing with banjo or guitar. He is also great for giving advice on buying a new instrument. Best-Instructor-Ever! I can't recommend David enough"
