George Colyer

(Online Only)
Teacher on stage playing mandolin

Born and raised in Florida, George Colyer fell in love with the guitar at the age of 16. He was first introduced to bluegrass music and the mandolin in the hills of Virginia, and immediately went home and purchased a $45 mandolin at a pawn shop. The rest is musical history. George has lived and played in Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee, and has played well over a thousand shows, including a once-in-a-lifetime tour with his wife Kelly and their dog Homegirl, playing live shows in all 50 US states within a single year.

George’s biggest musical inspirations are The Punch Brothers, Chris Thile, and Sufjan Stevens, and he channels the sound of the south on multiple instruments, including mandolin, banjo, guitar, double bass, and the bones. He’s quick on his feet musically, able to improv and learn music instantly by ear, and he loves diving deep into music theory to learn what makes music tick.

Currently, George lives with his wife and family in Tennessee, and offers online lessons in guitar, banjo, and mandolin. Students who love folk and bluegrass will absolutely love working with him!

(Note: Since George is not in Texas, lessons with him are online only!)
