Mandolin Lessons

The mandolin is an 8-stringed wonder that is sure to add a pop of color to any jam session!  This plucky little number has a distinct sound that carries over other instruments.  It’s great for strumming chords or for picking out a melody.  

We’re happy to provide the best collaborative mandolin lessons Boise has to offer!  At your mandolin lessons we’ll not only help you develop a strong musical foundation, we’ll also teach you a variety of popular songs so you can play with other musicians.  

Now Enrolling: Adults, Teens, and Tweens for Mandolin Lessons

Absolute beginners and beyond are welcome!

As a mandolin player at Boise Music Lessons, you’ll get a healthy dose of:

  • Individual notes and chord styles
  • Emphasis on understanding and communicating keys
  • Jamming/improvisation
  • Live skills for bluegrass circles or performance

And, as always, let us know if there’s something special you want to learn and we’ll make it happen.

Fun Fact: The mandolin is strung the same as a violin but has frets and is plucked and strummed with a pick rather than relying on a bow.  If you have experience with violin, mandolin will be a great way to expand your horizons.
