Musician's Workshop

Austin, Texas — Musician's Workshop has announced the launch of a new instant access web site that includes 43 mandolin instruction courses and over 400 individual songs for mandolin.

Individual songs from their courses can now be purchased similar to the experience of iTunes. Every course and individual song includes the video or audio plus tablature.

While still offering CDs, DVDs and books to customers that prefer to hold the physical item in their hands, all products are downloadable meaning no wait times, no mailing delays, no plastic products — instant access. Lessons delivered to your computer when you're ready.

Free complete lessons are available that include video or audio plus tablature so sample products can first be tried before a purchase is made.

Musician's Workshop has offered quality instruction since 1973 with a catalog that includes over 115 music instruction courses and over 1,100+ individual songs for Mandolin, Guitar, Banjo, Dobro, Piano, Bass, Drums, Fiddle, Harmonica, Autoharp, Tinwhistle, Singing Harmony and Songbooks.

i had already seen these two free mandolin lessons on youtube a month ago. i downloaded them both and found them to be well constructed and the tab to be easy to follow. i recommend anyone learning mandolin to check out the web site and scan through the individual song list.

Has anybody else noticed that the graphic of the two turtles is an imitation of the Grateful Dead's Terrapin Station album cover? Nice choice...

i downloaded the free Foggy Mountain Breakdown at work today and i was really surprised that it turned out to be a great sounding break. typically, i am disappointed with versions that i hear, but this one sounds good enough to make me want to work on it. there's no way, at my level that i'll have it up to speed right away, but its coming along pretty fast, and i think mainly because i'm liking the arrangement. (oh, by the way, it turned out to be 2 rounds, the first was a melody and the 2nd was a hot-lick take-off). i also scanned thru the list of songs that they offer and i found it to have a lot of the same old songs, but also a lot of interesting songs that i've never seen offered. if the quality of the rest of the list is as good as Foggy Mountain Breakdown, then i think i've found a goldmine.
