Mondo Mandolin

A Favorite Returns!

Allen Hopkins, Instructor
6 Thursdays, July 11-August 15, 2019
6:00-7:00 pm
Ages 10-adult, beginners

Derived from Renaissance lutes and tuned like a violin, the mandolin has spread from its Italian birthplace throughout the world. Its distinctive sound is featured in bluegrass, old-time, Celtic, rock, folk, classical, and ethnic music, playing melody and rhythm. Students will learn basic first-position chords, picking techniques, and several melodies in various folk styles. There will also be demonstrations of various mandolin-family instruments, old and new, and discussions of further resources for future development. Ability to read standard music notation is helpful, but not required.

NOTE: Students will need to have their own instruments. If you have questions about an appropriate instrument, feel free to e-mail the instructor directly at allen.hopkins@hochstein.org.

Fee: $10 registration fee; $102* tuition; $78 if enrolled in individual lessons at Hochstein. (Fees are as of Summer 2019.)
