Mandolin



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.
