East Kilbride Beginners/Improvers Mandolin Class


EK Mando photoI teach an adult daytime class in Beginners/Improvers Mandolin at East Kilbride Arts Centre. Because there is a mix of experience and abilities, several things can be going on at the one time.

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.

Below is the schedule for the course up to this time. If you have any further questions, please ask (email me).
