Brooklyn, N.Y. — Andy Statman, one of this generation's premier mandolinists has announced he is accepting new students to participate in individualized mandolin lessons to be held in his home in the Midwood area of Brooklyn.

Students interested in an opportunity to study with this music legend and acknowledged master of Monroe, old-time, and blues to jazz and ethnic genres should be self-motivated and possess at least basic to intermediate skills, but advanced students are equally welcome.

Topics students might explore with Andy can include right and left-hand technique and exploration, improvisation on all levels and finding your own musical voice and style.

A member of the early pioneering bluegrass bands Country Cookin' and Breakfast Special, Andy Statman is widely recognized as a master of early American roots music and Monroe-style mandolin, has authored the premier book on the mandolin of Jesse McReynolds and has taught on the faculty of David Grisman's Mandolin Symposium. He has recorded or performed with everyone from Itzhak Perlman and Bela Fleck to David Grisman and Ricky Skaggs.

In addition to his national tours, Andy can be seen performing with his ground-breaking genre-defying trio on a regular basis at the Charles Street Synagogue (53 Charles at West 4th Street) in New York's Greenwich Village.
