Private Mandolin Teacher

I grew up in North Carolina, around bluegrass and Old Time music. I started playing mandolin as a teen and studied Irish mandolin in College for 4 years. I play bluegrass/Old Time and Irish mandolin and am comfortable teaching both. I also play pop style mandolin. I teach basic music theory with mandolin lessons, also fingering techniques, tunings, chords, and styles. I love to teach mandolin students tunes, so they can understand how mandolin works when played alone or with others. I love folk music, and I would love to share that love with students.

Private Mandolin Teacher

Mandolin:
An instrument in the lute family that is usually plucked with a pick or with fingers. Mostly used in folk music it is very versatile for all types of music. I have many teaching techniques. I could teach a student just to strum or pick to songs, or teach you the basics of notes, chords, theory, rhythm and soloing. How ever you like to learn I will be there for you.

I will definitely be expanding my accordion skills & of music theory . I’ll also be adding some 😎 Jazz Standards to my repertoire ☺️.
Kelly S.
Karen was not prepared for the lesson. She spent 15 minutes trying to send me photos from a beginner Tabla book available on Amazon. She did not own a set of Tabla drums. She ensured me she could teach anything, but could not pronounce the words used for proper Tabla technique, knew no history and could not even teach me to tune. She literally was reading out of the book figuring it out along the way. I lost a lot of trust from this and asked for a full refund for future lessons.

"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"
