He was very encouraging and didn’t rush me at all.
This was only my first lesson, but I feel good about my future as a banjo player.

Brian is very knowledgeable about the banjo, music theory, and technique. Most importantly, Brian’s approach is customized the skills, objectives, and interests of the student. Brian effectively uses the online platform to facilitate the lesson. All-in-all, a great instructor!

I specialize in 5-string banjo, using the three-finger (bluegrass) technique. More specifically, I use a hybrid style of Scruggs/Melodic/Reno bluegrass techniques.

Banjo is the cure for sadness. Fact. It is also an incredibly diverse instrument, capable of playing simple chord accompaniments, or playing hyper-complicated Bach Sonatas (seriously, it's a thing).

Lessons with me will cover anything and everything from basic chord shapes and picking patterns (rolls), to single note techniques, melodic playing, scales, improvising, song tabs, chord charts, song writing, jamming with friends, and playing by ear.

For banjo I usually assign listening homework to my students. I feel that music appreciation is a huge component of being a good musician.

I'm comfortable teaching the banjo in a variety of styles but will typically start in Bluegrass. I can teach both Scruggs style finger picking and basic to intermediate Clawhammer. My comfort zone is higher in the Scruggs style of playing however.

I also teach beginning to advanced Irish Tenor Banjo (GDAE Tuning) and Tenor Banjo (CGDA Tuning). Though it looks similar to the 5-string bluegrass banjo, the Irish Tenor Banjo and Tenor have only 4 strings and are played with a traditional guitar pick (a "plectrum" - though a "plectrum" banjo is tuned different then these other 2) and strummed rather then plucked with individual fingers.

I can teach the Plectrum Banjo as well (CGBD Tuning) but will be teaching you on a 5 string banjo that I only play with four strings.

About Jared

I am overjoyed and grateful to say I have been teaching music since 2008. I am a very friendly and fun teacher with a great deal of professionalism and patience. More importantly, I love teaching and playing music with a passion. I play a great variety of instruments and have had the opportunity

Jared is friendly, knowledgeable, and effective at breaking down new concepts. My first lesson was awesome because he quickly sized up my current level and was able to meet me where I am in my piano journey. I know he will be able to help me reach my goals! Looking forward to more lessons. :)

"I wish I had found Mike sooner!

I tried to learn banjo on my own. Bought books, instruction CDs, videos on You Tube. It just wasn't happening for me - I was about ready to give it up. Met Mike at a Bluegrass event and after just a few lessons I was really moving forward! After a few months he had me going to Bluegrass Jam Sessions. Wow is that fun!

Mike is very patient and non-judgmental. He easily accomodates my work schedule. While he is a fine banjo player himself - our lessons are always about me and how to improve my playing. I always look forward to our next lesson."

"This produst was a great way to find a banjo teacher, when we had no idea where to even start looking.

Mrs. Fegan is a great instructor, who can explain things on all levels to make sure your child is truly learning. She has a fun disposition and you can tell she really enjoys teaching. My son loves her, learns more than just the banjo at lessons. She is very patient, yet expects my son to do his part too. We have been with her for a year, and now my son has added Baritone lessons as well, because of the encouragement and support, and respect she gives my son. Best teacher we have ever had! I truly believe Mrs. Fegan could teach my son anything, because she teaches the way a person seems to learn at their own ability."

Are Heavy Metal Banjos The Next Big Thing?

Loud, jangly, and twangy, the banjo is an instrument with a distinctive voice that immediately evokes the spirit of the American South. Long a mainstay of bluegrass music, banjos have recently been incorporated into pop music as well by bands like Mumford and Sons. And, if YouTube trends are any indication, it looks like the banjo is making another genre shift! A pack of viral videos featuring banjo covers of hard rock classics are making the rounds and proving that banjos can shred just a …
