(Lansing) Bluegrass & Swing Workshops

Saturday, April 15 - 11:00 am & 1:30 pm
Elderly Instruments - Lansing, MI (click for info)

Bluegrass Mandolin Workshop - Bluegrass, the most aggressive sport in the world of mandolin, is a genre all its own and requires specific left and right hand techniques.  Students will learn proper techniques for the left and right hands, how to draw amazing tone out of your instrument, different ways to play “chop” chords, melodies and accompaniment riffs.  The workshop is designed for beginner and intermediate players and all charts will be in notation and tablature.

Swing Mandolin Workshop - As the saying goes, “Swing is best played on a mandolin”.  No truer words have been spoken. Students will learn the ups, downs, ins and outs of swinging mandolin by way of chords, turn-a-rounds, rhythms, melodies and motif playing to build improvisation.  The workshop is designed for beginner and intermediate players and all charts will be in notation and tablature.

Workshops are $35 each OR $60 to attend both
