Nigel Gatherer's Mandolin School

NGMS Beginners Mandolin

This is an adult evening class in Beginners Mandolin. Whether participants have played before or not, I will be treating everyone as if they're picking up an instrument for the first time; it's the only way to be fair to all class members.

During the course we'll be learning the techniques necessary to playing the mandolin, building up a repertoire of tunes, and learning about mandolin music from around the world. The next term starts on Tuesday 22nd April 2014.

The classes are held in the small hall in Morningside United Church on Chamberlain Road at Holy Corner (how to get there) on Tuesday evenings from 6.15pm.

The cost for the eight-week term is £56.00 including all hand-out sheets, sound files, etc. There is also a limited number of concession places available for £49.00 for those on a state pension only or on benefits. To book a place on the course, email me with your name and contact details and I will reply.

Either send a cheque made payable to "Nigel Gatherer" to Nigel Gatherer, 8 Mitchell Street, Crieff PH7 3AG, or bring it with you on the first night. Alternatively, you may pay on-line using the button below. Any problems, please let me know.
