NGMS-Online Lower Intermediate Mandolin

Classes Update

Class name: Lower Intermediate Mandolin

Classes at Holy Corner (Nigel Gatherer's Mandolin School) have been suspended until at least April I'll be conducting classes online. The Beginners Mandolin class will not be running, which means the classes can be a little longer and not so rushed.

The class will run on Tuesdays from 6.40-7.50pm.

If you want to discuss anything about the class, send me an email (

This is an adult evening class in Improvers/Lower Intermediate Mandolin. Participants should know the basics of the mandolin and have been learning for at least a year.

During the course we'll be further developing the techniques necessary to playing the mandolin, increasing our repertoire of tunes, and learning about mandolin music from around the world.

Attending the Class

Most of the time I'll switch everyone's microphone off and you'll only hear me, but every so often I'll switch individuals on and ask how they're doing.
