MANDO MONTREAL FAMILY IS GETTING BIGGER!
Creating Mando Montreal was a crazy idea behind our heads. Some of these ideas have grown up, matured and now are starting to spread! New people came to us with the same strong and pure love of the mandolin.
Let's present them to you...!
Jean love's to talk about the multiple aspects of the mandolin world. As a child, he studied piano. The constant practice of this instrument has brought him to tackle Chopin’s concertos while reaching his twenties. He also became familiar with serial composition, traverse flute and organ music, as well as singing. After completing a master’s degree in Literature, he started to teach French and drama in high school. Parallel to his professional career, he founded the Bateleur theater company. During 17 years, he composed the music, designed costumes and built stage sets for 34 plays that he wrote. Now retired from teaching, Jean devotes himself entirely to his new passion: the mandolin. Jean came to us and naturally offered his help and we really feel it is a privilege.

Enzo Lord Mariano
Enzo is a young talented mandolinist and illustrator. After completing studies in cinema, he decided that he would pick-up jazz mandolin studies at cegep de st-laurent to fulfill his passion. He describes himself as "somebody who eats, draws, and plays the mandolin". He also share's his appartment with a "big potato-cat". We are very happy he's joined us with his pencil lines!
