    Default Mandolin lessons in AZ

    Does anyone know of mandolin teachers in the Phoenix area? I live in Mesa, which is east of Phoenix and can go to local areas such as Tempe, Scottsdale, Gilbert and Chandler. I had a wonderful teacher last year, but unfortunately she moved to Washington.

    Thanks ahead of time!

    If you dont find something Id suggest Skype, as long as you have good internet its almost as good as in person...the days of jerky jerky connections are gone and its real time feedback. After that Id suggest Matt Flinners online courses...hes available during the live seasons for feedback. After that theres a host of options...PegHead Nation, MandoLessons, Mando Mike, Magnus Zetterlund, Picking Lessons...so many choices nowadays.

    In Mesa, I was taking lessons at Milano Music in Downtown Mesa. Great teachers there. Recommend Jack Wolf.

    My previous teacher, Erin Wolff, taught at Milano's before she moved. I'll contact them to see if Jack Wolf still teaches there. Thanks!

    Skype lessons from Pete Martin at petimarpress.com ! There has to be good mandolin teachers in your area of Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale, Fountain Hills, etc. Check with music stores !
    My two favorite pastimes are drinking wine and playing the mandolin but most of my friends would rather hear me drink wine! Adapted from quote by Mark Twain------supposedly !

    Julie I just moved from Tempe to Mesa, so i will be interested to hear what local resources you find. Personally, I found FFCP work from Ted E (start in with Mandolin Cafe links, then get his book), and online lessons from Matt Flinner to be really helpful.
