More About Me

Fiddle, mandolin, guitar, tenor guitar and improvisation instruction from Pete Martin. In person lessons in Seattle, Issaquah and Bothell, WA. Skype lessons anywhere else.

My main goal is to have people discover the fun of music. The lessons stress having a good time while learning how to play the instrument and and the skills to play music with others.

Styles taught include Bluegrass, Oldtime, Jazz and improvisation.
