Mandomania is a weekly mandolin workshop open to everyone while the current crisis exists. Let's face it, we'll all be stronger with a little more mandolin in our lives!

Each week there will be a different theme or topic, and the music will be available in advance. See below for the schedule, and if there are any ideas you have for future workshops, please let me know.

Please download the resources needed for each workshop (click the links below to take you to the individual workshop pages). They're usually PDF sheets.

Joining the Workshop

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

Alternatively, download the app (Zoom Client App for Meetings) in advance:

and you can enter the Meeting ID and Password manually.

Enable your audio and video:

and you'll be ready to start. 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.
