Private Mandolin Lessons
A staple in bluegrass, country and folk music, the mandolin is a unique stringed instrument, small in size with a trilling, light characteristic sound that adds an interesting texture to arrangements. ROOTS offers mandolin lessons, through which students learn the skills and dexterity needed to play with confidence — and have fun while doing it.
The mandolin, described as having a vibrant, organic sound, has enjoyed a surge in popularity since the 1960s, and is used in a variety of musical styles, from bluegrass to classical.
Playing a stringed instrument like the mandolin teaches many skills to students that affect not only musical ability but mental and emotional skills as well, including:
- improved concentration
- improved dexterity and fine motor movement
- a sense of belonging and social skills with other players
- positive pressure to grow and learn
- increased self-confidence and inner motivation
“The sound of the mandolin … is a very curious sound because it’s cheerful and melancholy at the same time, and I think it comes from that shadow string, the double strings.” –Rita Dove
