Family Program: Beginning Mandolin and the Nashville Number System
In studios from New York to Los Angeles, most recording musicians rely on the same kind of sheet music found in popular songbooks, with notes on a staff and chord names like “C major” and “A minor.” In Nashville, however, session players read and write music according to the Nashville Number System, which uses numerical digits instead of traditional notation. In this beginner workshop, musician and educator Ryan Joseph leads participants through mandolin basics and demystifies the fundamentals of Nashville’s unusual musical language. Joseph plays fiddle and mandolin in Alan Jackson’s band and teaches at the Belmont University School of Music. Mandolins provided or bring your own. Ages 7 and up. Taylor Swift Education Center.
