Mandolin & Oud



Mandolins are compact, versatile and fun! Our mandolin classes welcome beginners and experienced players!

The mandolin has found a home in many styles of music: bluegrass, swing, jazz, old time, classical, folk, and rock. Because of its small scale and violin-like tuning, the mandolin is perfect for learning fiddle tunes and melodies. Guitarists will find that mandolin rhythm skills complement their existing technique.

Advanced mandolin students might like to join up with a band in one of our ensemble classes.
