Press Reviews

This is billed as 'A detailed course for those starting to play the mandolin' and that's exactly what it is. Simon Mayor has avoided the tedium of most beginners' courses by choosing interesting tunes for even the very first lessons. By the end you stand a chance of playing (amongst others) Buffalo Gals, Wildwood Flower, The Star of the County Down and Beethoven's Ode to Joy - a wisely diverse selection. It helps that Simon has a pleasant unpatronising manner and an ability to explain things clearly. He's also quite good on the mandolin(!) and should be an inspiration to all aspiring mandolin players. It's difficult to say much more about a beginner's course, but I could not fault this material in any way. It's way, way better than anything of this sort that I've seen.'
