Peghead Nation is happy to announce that Sharon Gilchrist’s popular eight-part workshop series from earlier this year is now available for subscription. Melodic Embellishment: A Doorway to Improvisation is designed for beginning to intermediate-level mandolinists, and players of other instruments tuned in fifths who are looking to start improvising or increase their improvisational skills.

In this workshop, Sharon uses common bluegrass and old-time tunes like “Old Joe Clark,” “Whiskey Before Breakfast,” “June Apple,” “Angeline the Baker,” and more to demonstrate her method for teaching students how to embellish and vary melodies as a way to begin to improvise.

In working with private students and teaching at numerous music camps around the world Sharon has developed an effective way of teaching this first stage of improvisation, allowing students to quickly go from playing basic melodies to expressing themselves on their instrument.

In addition to all eight workshops, students receive PDFs (notation and tab) and audio MP3s of each tune, as well as the video recordings of each workshop. Join Sharon in Melodic Embellishment now!
