Don Julin, author of "Mandolin For Dummies" and owner/operator of "Mandolins Heal The World" has put together a incredible diverse roster of mandolin instructors. While some are performers you will se at many of the top festivals and camps around the world, some stay closer to home and enjoy teaching more than touring. They all are great, passionate mandolin instructors sharing years of experience through the videos included on this educational website. Below the photo and short bio of each instructor, are links to all lessons currently available. Explore and have fun learning new tunes and concepts on the "Prince" of all stringed instruments: The Mandolin.
