In this 10 week cumulative course, Dominick Leslie will be your guide through chord theory, harmony and contemporary improvisation for intermediate/advanced level players. If you are looking to expand the horizons of your left hand and gather practice tools for approaching more challenging material, this is the class for you.
You will be able to walk away with a well rounded knowledge of the mandolin fretboard. Working together with your classmates, students will grow more confident as musicians and be able to apply what you learn in real world musical scenarios.
Master Class Teachers Sierra Hull and Jake Jolliff will join in for a few select classes to both witness the development of the students as well as add additional feedback and pointers along the way.
Each week, Dominick will send your lesson to you 6 days before your class. Then you, as the student have all week to practice and prepare for class. You will be expected to come to class prepared with the assignment.
Weather it is a song, a technical assignment, a transcribed solo, or another exercise, you will be expected to have put the time into the assignment before showing up to class.
Time in class will be spent breaking down difficult passages, moving through technical hurdles and making sure that each student has the opportunity to have questions answered.
Classes will be limited in number so that there is space and time for students to connect with Dominick, and share the work they have been putting into their development on the mandolin.
