NAPA, CA -- ArtistWorks, the leading provider of interactive online music lessons, has teamed up with Mandolin Cafe to present a rare, live online workshop with world-renowned mandolin player, and ArtistWorks Academy of Bluegrass online teaching artist, Mike Marshall. Since 2011 Marshall has taught hundreds of mandolin enthusiasts online at this first-of-its-kind online music and art campus that provides members with personalized instruction via video interaction with world-acclaimed musicians and artists.
This live streaming event takes place online July 9th at 5:30 PM Pacific Time/8:30 PM Eastern Time and will be moderated by Mandolin Cafe Founder Scott Tichenor. The event will feature Mike talking about his history with the mandolin, playing some tunes and teaching techniques for everything from bluegrass to jazz and classical. Fellow ArtistWorks’ instructor Andy Hall (Dobro), mandolin students and other special guests will be on hand to join in the fun.
Mike Marshall started his career with the Dave Grisman Quintet, played with everyone from Stephane Grapelli to Jerry Douglas to Béla Fleck and his frequent collaborator, Darol Anger. He has done stints with the group Montreux and his current experimental bluegrass group, Psychograss with fellow Academy of Bluegrass teachers Darol Anger and Tony Trischka.
During the event, Mike will give out a special code, which will give an event discount to new members joining his school. "Using Video Exchange™, I constantly interact online, helping the students at my online mandolin school improve their playing,” said Marshall. “I'm looking forward to broadening that musical discussion to a wider audience.”
Marshall’s students begin with access to dozens of pre-recorded online mandolin lessons, tabs and backing tracks and then, whenever they want feedback, they use ArtistWorks Video Exchange™ Feedback Platform to submit practice videos to him for review. He responds to each individual with a video detailing their strengths and providing additional exercises to shore up weak points. Each student/teacher video exchange is viewable by all students of that school creating a constantly growing library of customized, interesting and useful additional lessons. Membership starts as low as $90 for three (3) months.
