So You Want to Play the Mandolin

March 28 to April 18

Wednesdays | 6:30 to 8:30pm | Queensbury Campus

This class is designed for the beginner — those folks who are interested in playing the mandolin but don't know where to start. Learn the basics of holding, tuning and playing your first notes and chords on the mandolin, as well as left- and right-hand techniques and how to play a few tunes. The goal of this class is to get you started and provide you with the skills needed to play the instrument. We will take things slowly, with a focus on producing clear tone, developing muscle memory in your fingers and, most importantly, having fun. Handouts in standard notation and tablature will be provided.

Instructor: Alan Epstein
