Who this course is for:

  • This course is for a beginner
  • All ages - I once had a 96 year old man who wanting to take lessons. His goal was to learn 5 songs so he could die a happy man. He did exactly that and died a happy man. So if you are telling yourself you are to old, seriously it is never too late.
  • For the people that are saying my fingers are too fat, long or long, believe me I have heard all of that but truly believe anyone can play mandolin if you are willing to put in the work. It takes time to learn the amdnolin. For most people it doesn’t just happen overnight but when things finally start to click it is really fun.
  • For any player looking for a change in their instructor. I do believe it is healthy to try something new. Every instructor is going to teach you something different.
  • For anyone saying “I have no rhythm or talent” - “You can learn to do anything if you put your mind to it” - that is what my momma used to say and it still holds true today for everybody.
  • For anyone looking to meet new people. Playing the mandolin is a great way to make new friends. I have met my closest friends playing music. There is a huge community of like-minded people playing music in every part of the world.
  • For the beginner - This is a great starting point - you will get the total basics broke down.
