GFW Improvers Mandolin Class

 

I teach an adult evening class called Improvers Mandolin with the Glasgow Fiddle Workshop. Participants should know the basics of playing the mandolin, and we'll be looking at various techniques, tricks and tune genres throughout the course.

This year the GFW are concentrating on particular common sets of tunes to encourage people to play together more. Much of the repertoire of the Improvers class will be from the sets below. A more detailed breakdown of the content of the course will follow shortly. If you have any further questions, please ask (email me).
