About

Adam Sweet
Welcome to my blog.  My name is Adam Sweet.  Click here to hear me play with several groups over the years.

I teach music in Granby, Massachusetts.  While primarily a violinist, I have been playing and teaching mandolin in western Mass for more than 30 years!

In addition to offering private lessons and group classes, I have musical instruments and related accessories for sale.

If you'd like to find out more about my background, my full Bio is here.

I use this blog mainly to post music-related articles and updates about classes and concerts.  I post one or two articles a week, so bookmark it and check back if you'd like to see what's going on in my studio and life in Granby!

I am a co-founder of Mandolin New England (with Will Melton and Josh Bell).  Mandolin New England (MNE) is a musical organization fostering positive mandolin experiences for all ages and backgrounds.  The group consists of a mixture of various mandolin ensembles and groups and is hosted by Sweet Music in Granby and Josh Bell in Providence, students and colleagues from New York, western Mass, Connecticut and Rhode Island.

Adam & Emily traveling in China
I grew up in a suburb of Boston, moved to Amherst to receive a BA at Hampshire College (1985), and stayed here because it is so beautiful.  I have traveled all over the world for my business and to play music: all over the United States, Canada, Mexico,  Europe, Great Britain, Egypt, South Korea and China.  I met my wife Emily there.  She now works at UMass Amherst.

My sons Richard and Parker love the new Granby location.
