GFW Improvers Mandolin

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

The GFW Improvers mandolin class is remaining online for at least the first term (until the end of October). By then I'll know what happens next, but at the moment it's necessary to tread carefully, one step at a time. Any questions, email me.

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.

GFW Slow Session

I run a slow session before the classes, from 6.45-7.25pm to which everyone is invited to join in or just listen. See the GFW Slow Session page for further details.
