This is an adult evening class in Upper Intermediate Mandolin. Participants should know the basics of the mandolin and have been learning for a couple of years at least.

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

In order to participate, you need the Zoom app. When it's time for the workshop, by clicking the "Join Session" button on the right, you will be asked if you wish to download Zoom. Agree (it's free and quick to download).

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.
