A Don Julin Workshop“Jamming for Dummies”

 Wednesday, May 17

7:00 pm

 We first met Don Julin during the 2012 National Mandolin Orchestra Convention held here in the Twin Cities.  He is the author of the best selling “Mandolin for Dummies” which had just been released when we met.  He has since added a second publication “Mandolin Exercises for Dummies”


Don’s home base is Traverse City, MI and he has been playing, teaching and writing music with the mandolin for over 30 years. 


His original compositions have been used on many network and cable television programs including NPR’s All Things Considered.  He has toured internationally and until recently spent two years playing over 400 “maximum bluegrass” gigs with guitarist Billy Strings.  Some of you may have caught their show at The Dakota.


He is not staying closer to home and devoting more time to teaching.  We are delighted to catch him on one of his out-of-town sojourns to conduct this workshop.


“Jamming for Dummies” is an introduction to improvisation workshop.  He will share with you how to improvise off a given melody or a given set of chords.  The workshop will be 1 ½ to 2 Hours.  The workshop fee is $40.00.  Call today to reserve a spot studying with Don Julin.  He invites all instruments at the techniques he will discuss are widely applicable.
