Mandolin for Adults 
Instructor: Marty Collin
Level: Beginner
Age: Adults

Description: This introductory is perfect for first time mandolin players or students who have played in the past and haven’t picked up their instrument in awhile. Students will be taught foundational skills in technique, learn their first tunes, and be immersed in the culture of traditional music by learning to play with others in a fun, and positive environment.

There will be a passing jam at the end of each class where all beginning students in fiddle, banjo, mandolin, and guitar will come together to practice the skills they’re learning in class.

Prerequisite: None! This class will be starting students from scratch. Folks with a little prior experience but with only a tune or two under their belt may join this class as well.

What students will need:

  • Functional mandolin (bridge and all 8 strings intact, all tuners in working order)
  • Pick
  • Tuner
  • Notebook & pencil
  • Recording device optional
