The School of Mandolin with Mike Marshall is part of the ArtistWorks Academy of Bluegrass and offers beginner, intermediate, and advanced mandolin players access to one of the most comprehensive curriculums, as well as a number of interactive social features. Every student at the mandolin school has the opportunity to send a recorded video of themselves practicing and receive personal video responses from Mike with individualized instruction on how to progress.
Speaking about the creation of the mandolin content, Mike Marshall said, "I started with the absolute basics and marched through an entire mandolin curriculum that reaches pretty advanced subject matter. There are hundreds of short, concise videos the student can work through that are appropriate to their level. It's a massive amount of content and I think what we've created for mandolin students is as comprehensive as anything that's out there.
"Part of what makes the Academy unique is that students interested in personalized feedback and instruction (though not mandatory) can use ArtistWorks' Video Exchange System to upload a video of themselves playing and then the instructor provides a critique back by video. Student and instructor videos are available for viewing by all mandolin enrollees so it's similar to a public master class.
"There's also a forum where mandolin students can interact with students of other instruments in the entire School of Bluegrass so it's really a comprehensive educational environment."
The ArtistWorks Academy of Bluegrass also includes Tony Trischka (banjo), Darol Anger (fiddle), Bryan Sutton (guitar) and Missy Raines (bass), who all give personalized instruction online using innovative Video Exchanges.

He has a great ability to teach to the level of the student offering the right amount of encouragement yet always raising the bar.
There is a movie called "Crossroads" I think. Player in a school for Classical music but wanted to play R&R. When came time to play against the devil... Classical training helped him win. I play mostly Christian music and believe that anything I can learn will improve my playing. Would love to have this chance.
Click on the "yes" polling button and enter. The polling buttons here in the Cafe site logs you user information, and that is what Scott or the powers that be pick the winner from. But since I have entered you don't have to waste your time... Aah go ahead, you've got the same chance as I do. Good luck to all.
:popcorn: Waitin', just waitin'.
thanks for everything
