Marilynn also runs the American Mandolin & Guitar Suitcase Seminars, an off-shoot of her long-running American Mandolin & Guitar Summer School. AMGuSS events can be scheduled for a week or a week-end, and include instruction in technique, small ensemble performance, and the experience of performing in a plucked-string orchestra. This year the summer-version of AMGuSS will be moving to Maine, where it will be held at SummerKeys
Marilynn teaches a mandolin week every summer at the SummerKeys workshop in Lubec, Maine. The SummerKeys musical programs are designed to offer the busy adult student the opportunity to become immersed in music study and practice. There are no admission requirements, and the premise is: “Come as you are to enjoy the study, the work and the beauty of the Maine Coast. This year Marilynn is offering a Mandolin & Guitar Consort week from July 11-15, 2011.
