Kennebunk, Maine — Jazz Mandolin Project leader Jamie Masefield leads a day-long mandolin intensive open to players of all ability levels on April 4, 2009 from 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. at River Tree Arts, 35 Western Ave. in Kennebunk.

Topics will include composition, arranging, performance, technique, speed development, tone, dynamics, expression and duet playing. Linear motion across chord progressions in both bluegrass and jazz will be translated into useful licks for session-playing and improvisation.

The workshop will be a two-way process with emphasis on individual improvement. Attendees should have a piece or two prepared to perform for the class. Everyone will get a chance to play and receive some intensive feedback.

Registration is $95.00 for the six-hour intensive. Space is limited; early reservations recommended. Call (207) 967-9120 for more information or to register.
