Joe Carr, Associate Professor of Music at South Plains College in Levelland, TX, is looking for a few mandolin players who don’t read music – but would like to.
He is working on a brief book on this topic, How to Read Standard Music Notation for the Mandolin, and is hoping that a few volunteers will give his method a try and offer constructive feedback. Anyone who would like to take it for a spin (no charge) is invited to contact him by email.
Joe made his bones as a long-time member of Country Gazette in the 1970s and ’80s, and has several dozen titles under his name from Mel Bay Publications. He has been teaching both mandolin and guitar at South Plains since 1984.
