Introduction: I am a solo / strolling violinist. I perform at weddings: specifically ceremonies and cocktail hours. My rates are the lowest in my area. I have been performing for weddings for more than 35 years. I have a BA in Ethnomusicology and Music Therapy from Hampshire College where I graduated in 1985. I opened my studio in 1986 and have been teaching adults, teenagers and children over 10 how to play violin-family and mandolin-family instruments and coaching small groups. I play and teach mandolin and violin-family instruments (mandolin, mandola, mandocello, violin, viola). I’m the co-founder of Mandolin New England, co-founder of the traditional Irish duo Celticado, and the acoustic country and bluegrass trio The Americana Project.

They were very friendly, accommodating and prompt in communication. We were impressed by their energy and stamina. They played for 3 hours with barely a break and kept the music lively and beautiful for our wedding reception. If we ever need music for another event we will hire them again without hesitation.

Mr. Sweet is my mandolin teacher. I was blown away by how quickly he taught me to read music. I'm from an older generation, but that didn't phase him. I recommend his mandolin lessons to everyone I know.

I have studied mandolin with Adam for almost five years, both privately and in his group class. He is both thorough and engaging,and always has excellent stories to tell about music history. When I first came to his class, the idea that I'd be able to play mandolin seemed ridiculous, despite the music theory classes I took in college eons ago and having taught myself basic guitar chords and rhythms. Adam was right about one thing; I was able to play mandolin in very short time. I have been playing in his mandolin orchestra for the last two years, and it has been a phenomenal experience.
