Saugerties, N.Y. — Homespun Music Instruction is proud to partner with the Mandolin Cafe as the first music site on the web to offer their new Instant Access Music Instruction Delivery System, previously available only through the Homespun web site.

The Instant Access Music Instruction Delivery System allows users to search for, purchase and then download from Homespun's massive educational collection of music instruction 24/7 using easy-to-use software acquired from the Mandolin Cafe web site for the user's PC or Macintosh.

Users get Homespun's high quality video lessons anytime they choose and have them delivered directly to their computer. All that is needed is a high-speed internet connection.

No more waiting for UPS, FedEx or U.S. mail deliveries. No shipping and handling charges. Never out of stock. No lost or damaged shipments.

"Homespun is the clear leader in video music instruction and we're very pleased to partner with them in their new affiliate program. They've asked for and received input from us throughout the testing phase and we plan to use our message board to provide feedback on their new system to assist in providing the best service possible to mandolin community," said Scott Tichenor, owner and webmaster of the Mandolin Cafe.

At the time of the launch, Homespun's complete catalog of mandolin instruction is not available due to time and technological constraints involved in transitioning the collection to this new format. However, some of their best selling lessons of all-time are currently available including Chris Thile's groundbreaking Essential Techniques for Mandolin, Butch Baldassari's popular You Can Play Bluegrass series and ever popular The Sam Bush Mandolin Method.

Mike Marshall's blockbuster two-DVD Mandolin Fundamentals for All Players is said to be the next available release via Instant Access and available within 7-10 days of this announcement.
