The mandolin is considered a medieval cousin to the lute with a large rounded back. Over time, it has evolved into the slimmer instrument we know today. Its four pairs of strings, each doubled in octaves, give it a signature timbre and produces a distinct tremolo when played with quick movement back and forth over the pairs of strings. Its versatility makes it an intriguing addition to many genres — even pop music.

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
