“I have to say that making everything available online is a great convenience for me. Being able to stop and return to a more challenging exercise or a newer phrase is great for learning. I also really appreciate your availability to answer questions offline. This is a great course, and I feel as though I’m improving daily because of it.”—Joe C.


“The level was perfect. Mentally I understand many things that have opened up the fingerboard a lot; now I need some quality time to get it under my hands. I found things challenging without feeling out of reach.”—Stan M.


“I’m really enjoying the course. The first time I’ve actually practiced an instrument in my 60 years!”—Skip H.

    Hi Matt.
    I’m thinking of signing up for your course in swing mandolin but may not may not always be able to make time available at 9pm USA time as I’m living in Ireland.
    Do I get downloads of the lessons if I sign up?

      Hi Ray,

      Yes; all live class sessions are available to view on the class website by the following day, and all class sessions (and all other materials) are also available to download.
      I hope that helps! And I hope all is well in Ireland. Happy New Year!

      Matt Flinner
