Lessons I Provide

I know how difficult it can be to find a reliable teacher that can help you through the early stages and get you playing simple tunes enjoyably, and soon. Teachers need to be able to motivate and guide students towards success. As an experienced and passionate Mandolin Teacher, I believe in an approach that gives students positive, constructive ways to learn. I design my lessons according to my students’ needs, with an emphasis on confidence-boosting activities.

Getting Better

Once you've mastered the basics, you'll want to spread your wings and begin to play with confidence. I work with my students to find  the right balance of personalized attention, patience, practical training, and positive encouragement. I make learning fun through a variety of engaging and outside-the-box activities. Get in touch today to schedule a lesson at your convenience.

Playing with Others

As well as personalized lessons, I am able to offer students a chance to play with my Mandolin group, "Ottocorde", who play all kinds of music, Bach to Beatles, Renaissance to Folk. And also, the newly formed "Wessex Folk Orchestra". Most musicians will tell you, there's nothing like playing with other people. Take advantage of the experience and opportunities I bring. Get in touch today to find out more and to reserve your lesson today.
