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.

Classes at Holy Corner have been suspended until further notice, but I'll be conducting the class online. I'm working on scheduling the next term's worth of classes, and I'll get in touch when I've completed this. In the mean time, check in with the temporary classes below.
