Cheverly, Md. — Renowned mandolin and guitar instructor and performer Orrin Star will hold a mandolin workshop entitled "Rounds on the Mandolin" on Saturday, January 12, 2008 from noon to 2:00 p.m.

Rounds, those infectious folk melodies that magically harmonize when sung over themselves at staggered intervals sound great on the mandolin. Because of their simplicity, they can be learned and played almost immediately.

In addition to a tablature hand-out, attendees will receive a CD with all of the rounds played both solo and in music-minus-one fashion so that you can play them as intended on your own.

Level: All (except complete beginner)
Limited to 12 participants
$40 fee. Includes written hand-out
