Join Mike Marshall and Caterina Lichtenberg

March 3 @ 8:00 am - March 5 @ 5:00 pm


Registration here.

We started the Mandolin World Retreats as a way to create an intimate, relaxed environment where each mandolinist (no matter their level or style of player) could find inspiration, be propelled forward on their musical journey, and leave with some new music under their fingers.  We love to find that magic spot where you are being challenged but not in over your head.  Because registration is limited, there will be more opportunity for questions, for working with you up close. and for discussing some of our favorite tips and tricks  – all while having fun, making new musical buddies, and sharing some good food and wine!

You’ll spend time learning Bluegrass tunes, Swing and Jazz improve, and the Classical techniques of the great masters.  We’ll also dive deep into Brazilian Choro, catch you up on your chord theory, and play some of those beautiful Italian melodies that remind us of why we love this instrument so much.  On the last day, if you want, you’ll be able to join both of us on stage for a final Concert.

The retreat is being held in the historic, waterfront town of Benicia, California about an hour from San Francisco and less than a half-hour from the Napa Valley.

Hope to see you March 3 – 5, 2023.

Mike and Caterina
