Improvers Mandolin Class


I teach an adult evening class in improvers mandolin with ALP Scots Music Group in Edinburgh. Participants should know the basics of playing the mandolin, and we'll be looking at various techniques, tricks and tune genres throughout the course.

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