Did I say patient?
A fantastic ear and knows what I need to accomplish.
In time, Jason will help me master my goal and in time to jam with friends this summer.
Cheers.

My 10 year old is taking drawing lessons online with Jason. He loves it! The lesson is tailored to what he wants to learn and his confidence in what he is able to do is steadily increasing. He looks forward to his lesson every week.

Had an excellent initial discussion with my instructor, Edwin, today. It was big picture but at the same time Edwin’s comments & suggestions gave me confidence in his command of the art (engineering, arrangement, composition & structure, and playing techniques), all the things I’m going to need help with to take my musical projects to another level.
Mike
Edwin is chill, flexible, and conveys a ton of relevant practice tips every lesson.
Vic
I've had 4 lessons with Edwin so far and have already made a lot of good progress, by learning songs and theory and strumming patterns and fingerpicking. Edwin has a genuine interest in my improvement.

Ronnie knows his stuff and he is very patient with me and he wants me to do well. He’s definitely good at what he does and me not so good. But I am going to try to look at it differently. I just wish we could make eye to eye contact

Lean how to play bluegrass banjo including melody and finger picking. Also "Clawhammer" techniques.

About Richard

I have studied, performed and taught music for over 30 years. Accordion was my first instrument at age 7 which was a great introduction to the keyboard, melody and harmony. That was followed by guitar and other stringed instruments (Banjo, Ukulele) as well as drums. I studied with great teachers

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play recognizable tunes. First, starting off with simple arrangments and then building as you become more advanced. I typically use Banjo Primer, Claw Hammer Banjo Primer and "You Can Teach Yourself Banjo" These books break everything down and gets you up and running very quickly. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Eric has taught me a lot in 5 months! He is patient but also corrects my technique which I appreciate. He explains the various skills and techniques making sure that I understand them using efficient fingering. He is also left handed which helps me see the mirror image as I am right handed. Highly recommend him!

I’ve had two lessons with Eric and both have been fun and informative. Eric’s approach allows the student to discover while learning, a useful approach to instruction. As an adult learner retuning to music after many years I’ve found Eric’s method refreshing.

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 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

"Mike is truly a patient, excellent teacher & communicator. He totally understands my needs and limitations, and always finds a way to address them and thereby helps me move forward. I am absolutely confident that in the very near future I will be able to play the banjo and be able to jam with others - and I attribute all of that to Mike and his approach. My only regret is that I didn't meet him 17 years ago when I first moved to the area and decided to learn to play the banjo. I wholeheartedly recommend him for anyone - he loves to play and he loves to teach."

"Richard is a fantastic instructor that is flexible with may many questions. He answers succinctly, and is willing to go down the rabbit hole with me (I'm a philosophy major). But, he is quick to bring me back to instruction in the playing itself. His patience and persistence are noteworthy. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor to teach me my first instrument."

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 …
