Private Mandolin Teacher

Beginner to intermediate.
Mandolin is mostly known for bluegrass, but in the last few years it's become quite prominent in country, as well as other genres. It's a very fun instrument, once one gets used to the size.
Mandolin lessons mostly entail building a chord
vocabulary, and maybe learning a basic scale or two. After that students are ready to learn tons of songs.

Private Mandolin Teacher

I have been playing mandolin for about 5 years now. I really enjoy the bluegrass experience on mandolin

About Scott

Scott S. I started playing guitar while in high school. Then, I furthered my studies in guitar at the Atlanta Institute of Music (2 Years) and Georgia Perimeter College (2 Years) where I studied Music Theory and Jazz. It was during these few years when I played in several rock, Bluegrass and Jazz

Scott
Scott is a very patient teacher. He adapts his lessons based on the students understanding music theory and what student wants to achieve on a personal level. Personally, I was very shy and with little understanding of theory but was willing learn and apply Scott's teachings. What I didn't expect, is a life long friendship. I would highly recommend anyone who from a beginner to experienced player to Scott Sadler to expand their knowledge in music.
Georgia
I took weekly in-home lessons with Scott from (roughly) age 6 to age 13 and I could not recommend him more highly. Though I should be reviewing Scott as a teacher and musician, I feel that I should first mention Scott as a person; Learning from such a young age and through an incredibly formative time of my life, Scott became for me a sort of mentor as well as a teacher. He encouraged me to do what I cared about, allow myself to be creative, and get over the fear of making mistakes and owning my own work. Scott listens to what his students have to say, whether it’s feedback, goals, or concerns, guitar and life related alike. Easygoing, positive, and never judgmental, he creates a space where a student feels genuinely heard, and for me this was very important.

When it comes to lessons, it is impossible to miss how passionate Scott is for what he does; Scott is always full of ideas for each student and how they can use their strengths and interests, and he puts time and energy into personalizing each student’s lessons instead of simply going by the book. He does this because he is genuinely passionate about each of his students. For me, this meant turning to song-writing when I « just can’t do Taylor Swift » as I remember a 6-year-old me sighing one day, helping me learn to craft my own solos, or teaching me to write my own tabs for songs I couldn’t find yet online. Scott introduced me to blues and jazz at a young age and showed me so much about music I would never have otherwise found, and he always taught me the theory behind what we did so I understood what I was doing and could apply it on my own. I’ll never forget learning Georgia On My Mind, learning how to solo over it on my own (and do it well), and the pride of seeing what I was capable of after all that work; even 4 years later, I still know the song by heart.

In terms of capability, Scott is highly proficient and can handle just about anything you throw at him. Because he seriously knows what he is doing, he can improvise and tailor lessons to teach you what you want to learn. While I was learning, I always looked to Scott to play a piece I was struggling with to see how it could be improved, as he always played it beautifully. Listening to Scott play, I was always re-inspired or re-motivated to learn and to improve.

I’m sure I’ve been rambling for far too long at this point and I could honestly continue for a while, but I’ll spare you and simply leave it at this: I am endlessly grateful to Scott for what and how he taught and cannot recommend him more highly to anyone who wants to really learn how to play. No matter your age, experience, interests or other concerns, Scott can teach you, and teach you well.
Kimberly
Scott taught my son for 4 years before he married and moved away. Heart breaking for my son bc Scott encouraged my son creatively while teaching him fundamentals and theory. In the end Scott was teaching my son how to compose songs that my son had written. Scott is honest and great with kids.

Zander is extremely knowledgable and has the ability to communicate that knowledge in an easy tower and way. Great teacher!
David Otto
I am a first time stringed instrument student. Zander has a talent for structuring lessons to make me 'work' to see progress. He is patient and answers my questions in a manner that make sense. I'm fortunate to have connected with him. Given his multi instrument proficiency and obvious knowledge base I can't help but recommend his teaching skills.

Chas E.
My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

Great experience with Zach. I'm still learning how to sing properly, though.
