Engaging mandolin and tenor banjo teacher based in Cambridge. Let's get playing!

About the lesson

My approach towards tuition is primarily focused on the personal goals and aims of the student and, most importantly, their enjoyment of playing music. I do not believe that learning a musical instrument should be an excercise in torture, but rather an exciting journey which equips you with the tools to play the music you want to play!

So, if you want to learn how to play Irish jigs and reels for the weekly session at your local, that's what we will focus on. If you want to build up a repetoire of American tunes for next summer's bluegrass festival, that's what we'll do. If you want to learn the accompaniment so you can sing the songs of Dick Gaughan or Richard Thompson at the next singer's night in your local Folk Club, ditto. Or if you just want to learn how to play but have no idea of what direction to take, we can figure that out together. As I say above, I am not a purist and I believe that music is one of the greatest pleasures in life - let's keep it fun and enjoy the journey together!

About Robin

My name is Robin Jones and I have been playing fretted instruments including the mandolin, tenor banjo and Irish bouzouki for the last 15 years. I currently play mandolin full time in The Trials of Cato, where the instrument occupies the lead role. I also sing and write songs for the band. We were recently described as 'one of the real discoveries on the folk circuit in recent times' by BBC 2's Mark Radcliffe and have just won the 'Best Emerging Artist' category in the Wales Folk Awards.

As an instrumentalist I primarily focus on the Celtic style, although I can also offer instruction in other styles such as bluegrass and klezmer. I am even partial to a bit of blues rock and middle eastern music and love incorporating this into my mandolin playing! If you would like to listen and get a feel for the type of music I play, please follow this link to my band's YouTube channel - (concealed information)

I consider myself an easy person to get along with and a patient, engaging teacher - I love not only to share what knowledge I have with others but also to learn from them in whatever way I can. I am not a purist and I believe that a student's enjoyment of the music we are learning is paramount.
