Mandolin Improvisation Intensive & Dinner Prepared by Frank Solivan

Just off of the Eastern Market Metro stop.

A hands on intensive with Frank Solivan, touching on traditional bluegrass, fiddle tunes, swing standards and country classics. An in-depth study of rhythm fundamentals, chords, scales, arpeggios, and use of fingering patterns to mentally map your fretboard. Students will use these tools to build musical solos, learn and play faster, improve tone and enhance the tunes they already know. Even if you are a rank beginner, advanced player or have taken one of Frank's workshops before, you'll walk away with new tools and ways to approach your mandolin. Must have a mandolin and a recording device is recommended. All followed by a meal prepared by Frank.


Mandolin instruction phase one: Technique, Tone Timing and Tempo. Incorporating "The Four T's" into practice routines; Developing good habits, healthy playing, stretches, etc; Use of chords, scales and arpeggios to develop familiar patterns in mapping the fretboard; Mandolin etiquette in a band setting and jam session; Let's learn a tune

Open jam and practice

Mandolin instruction phase two: Learn another tune and incorporate phase one ideas to think more musically and build solos. Improvisation isn't as hard as it seems.

Dinner/Jam: Enjoy one of Frank's "One Pot Wonders" (chile verde) followed by mando jam
