About Ethan Setiawan

Hello there! I’m Ethan Setiawan, and I’m a mandolinist. I make my living traveling around the country playing music, and fill my time otherwise with recording and teaching. I’ve mainly been touring recently with my band Corner House, and I’ve been on the road with Darol Anger and Tony Trischka.

As a graduate of Berklee College of Music, I’ve deeply felt the impact of the late great John McGann. While I never had the privilege of studying with him personally, his spirit still pervades the American Roots Music Program at Berklee, and especially the mandolin curriculum, which is carried on with honor and vigor by Joe K. Walsh. Inspired by John’s long running transcription service, I’m starting this Patreon to carry that tradition in my own way.

I'm restructuring this page to reflect 2 things - I'm going to start livestreaming an hour of my practicing every week starting the week of August 24th. At various tiers you can ask about topics for me to address in these weekly sessions. I'm also going to start interviewing musicians I admire about their practice habits and asking questions of those interviewees is also a reward. This is in addition to transcriptions, available at varying frequencies at different tiers. There are people out there doing better lesson videos than I can and probably enjoying it more - I hope this will positively affect my corner of the mandolin world.
