Learn mandolin this summer at Nigel Gatherer’s Mandolin Summer Schools, Dundee 2010 http://bit.ly/aOkfKw

mixed instrument groups • structured jam sessions • concerts

I have started putting details of my summer schools on my website at
Nigel Gatherer’s Mandolin Summer School. There are three different 5-day courses:

Week 1: 18th-23rd July, with emphasis on beginners to improvers.
Week 2: 25th-30th July, with emphasis on more improvers to intermediate
Week 3: 1st-6th August, for all levels.

Generally the mandolin classes will be in the morning, and in the afternoons we’ll have mixed instrument groups, one-to-one lessons, sessions, talks, concerts, and other activities. Nigel Gatherer’s Mandolin Schools are part of the Living Tradition Summer Schools, so participants will have the opportunity of mixing and playing with singers, dancers and other instrumentalists in a relaxed, convivial and fun atmosphere. In addition, there will be concerts, led sessions (slow and medium-to-fast), mixed instrument workshops, and tuition in other subjects including song, dance, whistle, fiddle, smallpipes, guitar and, in week 3, art. The three summer schools will run from Sunday evening till Friday lunchtime, and will offer accommodation and meals. Further details will be added as the programme develops.
