Nigel Gatherer's Mandolin School

NGMS Beginners Mandolin

This is an adult evening class in Beginners Mandolin. Whether participants have played before or not, I will be treating everyone as if they're picking up an instrument for the first time; it's the only way to be fair to all class members.

During the course we'll be learning the techniques necessary to playing the mandolin, building up a repertoire of tunes, and learning about mandolin music from around the world.

The classes are held in the small hall in Morningside United Church on Chamberlain Road at Holy Corner (how to get there) on Tuesday evenings from 6.00pm.

The cost for Term C (eight weeks) is £56.00 including all hand-out sheets, sound files, etc. There is also a limited number of concession places available for £48.00 for those on a state pension only or on benefits. To book a place on the course, email me with your name and contact details and I will reply. The next term starts on Tuesday 18th April 2017.

Either send a cheque made payable to "Nigel Gatherer" to Nigel Gatherer, 8 Mitchell Street, Crieff PH7 3AG, or bring it with you on the first night (please let me know if you're going to do that). Alternatively, you may pay on-line using the button below. Booking for Term C now open. Any problems, please let me know.   14 places left
