This class is taught by Olivia Duffy.  She is one of the very finest teachers for the mandolin and performs around town in MANY popular local bands!

She will begin with the anatomy of the instrument, how to hold the mando, names of strings, notes, and of course, how to tune the instrument! Then the student will be ready to learn to play simple and fun melodies and their first chords(easy one and two finger chords at first!)

Olivia will teach how to hold a pick and proper picking and strumming techniques. Besides the importance of right hand techniques, the fretting hand will also be discussed in detail with an emphasis on proper fingerings and efficiency.

Learn fun and easy tunes while learning the basics of mando techniques and basic music theory. Olivia will also teach a few methods of embellishing around a melody to fancy things up a little. This includes learning how and when to add fills and licks. This a great beginner class and is fun to learn to make music with others and make new friends!
