Nigel Gatherer's Mandolin School

NGMS Improvers Mandolin

This is an adult evening class in Intermediate 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.

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 7.40pm.

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. The next term begins on Tuesday 22nd April 2014.

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 (please let me know if you're going to do that). Alternatively, you may pay on-line using the button below. Any problems, please let me know.
