I have a firm belief that great playing doesn't need to be complicated, and that a focus on the rudiments of technique, tone and rhythm can equip anyone to make enjoyable sounds at whatever level. I teach students from a range of backgrounds, and many of whom don't have any experience of playing an instrument or music theory let alone one based in any particular tradition or style.


The lessons on this site are primarily designed to reinforce basic principles of theory and technique. The beginner lessons are currently all available for free, and a couple of intermediate lessons that are complete and available to those interested in stepping up their playing. As I publish more material it will be included on the lesson lists, and available as pdfs. Contact me at mandolintutor@gmail.com for more information.
