If you can read treble clef or tab and play a scale or melody, this class is for you.  We will continue discovering and playing the notes on each string and explore chords and double stops, but for the most part we will make music together!  And isn't that the fun part of music anyway?  Mandolin Level 1 is not a prerequisite.
