Robert teaches beginning to intermediate mandolin students.

Beginners will work on basic technique, reading, note playing, and strumming chords.

Intermediate students will work on reading in higher positions, expanding chord vocabulary, chop chords, scales, and improvising.

Progress on an instrument is relative to how much a student practices. Students who wish to progress quickly should expect to maintain a daily practice schedule. Practice sessions don't necessarily need to be long. 20 minutes a day can go a lot farther than 140 minutes split up between two days of the week. It is especially important for beginners to play every day so they can build up the proper strength, coordination, and flexibility in their hands.
