GFW Mandolin

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.

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 in the atrium before the classes, from 6.55-7.25pm to which everyone is invited to join in or just listen.
Full details can be seen here.


  • Through the GFW (visit their website), or turn up on the first night of term (Monday 5th September 2016)
