Mandolin Orchestra of Devon (MOOD)

This online space is for the Mandolin Orchestra of Devon for the Spring Term 2021. Scroll down to join the group.

It is open to existing members and new members. You can join from anywhere in the world, but please note we are hoping for at least some of this term to include in-person rehearsals in central Devon, UK.

Each month you will have access to a brand new arrangement of a tune. You'll be able to download scores and sound files to support your learning.

In addition, each month our leader Nick Wyke focuses on a mandolin technique that will help you to enjoy playing that month's tune even more. Nick is supported by Jon Dyer from the Wren Music team.

At monthly live sessions we get to know each other, ask questions and share ideas about the arrangements, and we have the opportunity to play together as well.

This term the live sessions will be:

  • Saturday 17 April, 2.00pm
  • Saturday 15 May, 2.00pm
  • Saturday 26 June, 2.00pm
  • Saturday 17 July, 2.00pm


In line with England's government guidelines, the June and July sessions may happen in person. If this can happen they will be at Meldon Village Hall, Meldon, Okehampton, EX20 4LU. If we cannot run the sessions in person they will continue online.

If you have any questions you can contact the MOOD team via [email protected]
