San Diego, Calif. — Mike Marshall will be giving a mandolin workshop at Old Time Music, 2852 University Avenue (North Park area of San Diego) on Wednesday, February 28, 2007, from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Cost of the workshop will be $50.00.
Mike Marshall has been at the vanguard of acoustic music making in a variety of styles for over 30 years. Come spend a few hours with Mike as he takes a comprehensive look into his vast world of mandolin styles and techniques. Bluegrass, Jazz, Blues, Brazilian and Classical music will be covered.
As the founder of the Mandolin Symposium Mike has developed his teaching techniques and communication skills and will break down his mandolin playing into simple digestible parts. From the basics of how to hold the instrument and use the hands to clean up simple tunes, to freeing the improviser to play what they hear in their heads.
Right and left hand technique, interpreting a slow melody with tremolo, playing rhythm in a band, improvising over jazz changes, chord construction, cross-picking, fingerbusters, playing in a duet setting and playing solo Bach.
All levels welcome. Mandolin, Mandola, Mandocello
