NIC offers mandolin class through Workforce Training Center
There’s still room to enroll in “Beginning Bluegrass Mandolin,” a community education class offered through the North Idaho College Workforce Training Center this spring.
The class will be offered from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in eight Tuesday sessions May 16 through July 11 (with the exception of July 4) at the NIC Workforce Training Center in Post Falls.
The course teaches participants right hand and left hand techniques, such as down/up picking, tremolo, chords for backup and applied mandolin theory. Participants will also learn several Bluegrass and fiddle songs. Students must bring a functional mandolin to class.
The class will be taught by Harold Streeter, who has been a professional musician for more than 45 years. Streeter has taught music workshops, classes and private lessons for 44 years and has written music instructional columns and books.
The class is open to people of all ages although enrollment by anyone under 16 must be approved by the instructor, so please call prior to registering for approval. The fee is $69. Space is limited.
