GFW Improvers Mandolin

GFW 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.

In addition, I run a slow session in the atrium before the classes, from 6.55-7.25pm. Fuller details can be seen here.


  • Through the GFW (visit their website), or turn up on the first night of term (Monday 31st August 2015)
