Violin & Mandolin
Along with his signature bow tie, Aaron Weinstein will be wearing two hats at Django in June this year. For the first two days of Django Camp he’ll be teaching mandolin, an instrument on which he is best known for his exquisite chord-melody arrangements of classic jazz standards. Author of, “Mandolin Chord Melody System” from Mel Bay Publications, he is an excellent teacher, as you can see here:
Then for Friday and Saturday Aaron will trade his plectrum for a bow and work with violinists. You can check out his full bio right here for the long list of the artists he’s worked with as a performer, arranger and recording artist. Here he is with one such artist who knows his way around America’s own “hot jazz” guitar style, Matt Munisteri.
