I teach at Gryphon. They are good guys and will treat you right.

Welcome to my site!

Starting the first week of April, I'll be offering three Bluegrass Jam Classes and a Beginning Mandolin Class. For details and online signup, go here.

I'll be teaching a Bluegrass Jam Class at Walker Creek April 7th – 10th. Unfortunately my class is already full, but there are lots of great classes and teachers there. Details here. I'm also teaching Intermediate Mandolin at the CBA Grass Valley Music Camp, June 11th to 14th. Not sure if there are still openings in my class, but you can check in here.

Regular lesson time slots are a bit tight right now, especially in prime time, but I do lots of one-off lessons - I have a calendar here. that shows those openings. . You can email me: jack@jacktuttle.com for inquiries. I teach six days a week at Gryphon Stringed Instruments in Palo Alto. For everything you need to know about my banjo, mandolin, guitar or fiddle lessons, go here.

I've been doing a few Skype lessons, and it's going pretty well, so if anyone's interested in trying that, just email me about it.

What's On My Site

The site is mainly meant to be a resource for my current students in the South San Francisco Bay Area. However, anyone who is learning to play should find something of interest.

Most of the navigation buttons lead to obvious content. Some of things you will find on my website include:

  • Schedule a Lesson lets you schedule a one-time lesson, or reschedule a missed lesson.
  • About Lessons has all the basic information about taking lessons from me including when, where, how much and how to schedule a lesson.
  • Helpful Tips is an entry point for all help for each instrument and a link to the top ten things that you can do to improve your playing. The top ten includes tips for more effective practice.
  • Explore some of the links down the left side to learn more about bluegrass .
