Introduction to the Mandolin
- School of Music class
Intro to Mandolin is for all people starting out on the mandolin. Our focus will be on establishing a solid foundation on the instrument from which to move forward from in all styles of music including but not limited to, bluegrass, Appalachian string band, Celtic, and classical. We’ll discuss picking technique, proper left hand alignment, posture, and work through some exercises to utilize all these things together and fully. We’ll progress to learning essential chords and hopefully a couple melodies to play together! And we’ll listen to some classic mandolin recordings that span the breadth of what the mandolin can do.
