This instructional package is designed for beginner and intermediate mandolin students who really want to learn how to play. So many students spend a significant amount of money on their instrument, tuners, case, strap, music stand, etc. and then fail or lag way behind (or quit) because they have not made the investment in learning materials.
Or the student fails to progress because they choose the wrong materials in the wrong order for their needs.
This package is designed to solve all of those problems. You'll have everything you need. You'll know the best order in which to proceed. You'll have "skin in the game". Once a person invests in a long term learning process there is a sense of internal obligation that forms.
Here is what you'll find inside:
24 Video Lessons with Tracks, Tab & Standard Notation PDF
Includes the Lesson Checklist PDF with my suggested order of study.
Also includes these 9 PDF eBooks and courses:
This Treasure Chest package contains 8 hours and 52 minutes of video instruction, 212 MP3 audio tracks and 568 pages in PDF form.
This collection contains everything I would teach a student over the course of 18-24 months of private lessons depending on their willingness to practice and learn the material. Learn this stuff and you WILL BE a competent mandolin player!
If you purchased all of these resources individually you would spent $282. Save over $150 and have everything you need all at once.
NOTE: This is a HUGE download. And it ought to be! It contains 45 years of my mandolin knowledge and has taken 12 years to create. (I wish I had this when I started!) Use your laptop or desktop computer when you start the download. Let it run. It takes hours and you must be patient. But once you have it, you have it. Once you have the download you can transfer the individual items (videos, PDFs and MP3s) onto mobile devices as desired.
If you are a Windows computer user I have discovered, thanks to a couple of our mandolin brethren, that certain versions the Windows' built-in unzipper may choke on files over 4 gigs in size.
Three fellow downloaders have now suggested that I tell folks about the free unzip utility called 7-zip which opens the download beautifully. Here is a link: https://www.7-zip.org/download.html (You may need to cut and paste that or just Google "7-zip") There are several versions to choose from (32 bit, 64 bit, etc.) and only you will know which one is correct for your computer. Fortunately, no Mac users have reported similar difficulty opening the files.
