Why Learn to Play Mandolin?

Mandolin is an incredibly versatile instrument, and fairly easy to pick up with the right instruction. They're light and easy to handle, making them great for people of all ages and skill levels. While it has more strings than a guitar, they are often played together as if they were four strings, making it easier to get started with. But while it might be simpler than some other instruments, you can still play a wide range of songs and musical styles. You're limited only by your creativity!

Learning the mandolin can help you develop a wide range of skills, many of which are transferrable to other instruments as well. Alla's Music Studio's lessons teach:

  • Coordination and finger dexterity
  • Improved focus and mental acuity
  • Musical skills like identifying tones, melodies, and harmonies
  • A wide range of musical and mandolin playing styles

Personalised Mandolin Lessons

Our teachers offer a more personalised approach to learning mandolin. No matter what skill level you're at, they'll work with you at your skill level to ensure you can learn at a pace that's best for you. While all our lessons are based on the national AMEB curriculum, your teacher will tailor them to help you reach your goals. If you have a specific song you want to play, want to be good enough to play in a band, or even want to play professionally, your teacher will be able to set you up with a lesson plan that gets you where you want to be.
