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.

I teach:
TENOR BANJO - MANDOLIN - TENOR GUITAR - ACOUSTIC GUITAR
Please go to the instrument listing and it will explain about that particular Instrument.

Hello,
I first want to explain about the Tenor Banjo it's different from the 5 string Banjo used mostly in Bluegrass and Country.

Tenor Banjo has 4 strings, it comes in 17 fret and 19 fret and generally used in Irish/Celtic and Jazz music.

Irish /Celtic music you play single note melodies and in Jazz the majority of the time you strum.

Standard Tuning: C, G, D, A - Same as a Viola and Cello
Irish Tenor Tuning: G, D, A, E - Same as a Mandolin and Violin
Chicago Tuning: D, G, B, E - This tuning is the same as the first four strings of a guitar

The name "Tenor" has nothing to do with the pitch, I read it was a mistake somewhere in history as 4 string banjos were used in American Tango in the 20th century called Tango Banjos, then somewhere changed to Tenor through time.

I accommodate all students differently ...

Antonio is such a kind and patient teacher. He was able
to get me started on the basics of the tenor banjo in our first lesson and even made me my own binder of music for me to practice at home. It’s hard to come by someone who actually knows the tenor banjo and I feel lucky to have found a great teacher! He really look the time to make sure I felt comfortable practicing for our next session. I am looking forward to continuing my studies with Antonio.

"I started with Richard in July, and by October I'm not only playing and singing songs on the banjo, I'm also learning musical theory that I never really fathomed learning. It's opened up a side of my brain that's been rather dormant for the last forty seven years."

"Lyle is awesome! Lessons are fun and helpful, he focuses on helping you meet your musical goals. I am an adult absolute novice, never played an instrument before, and I feel really good about my progress. If a year ago someone would have asked me "will you ever play an instrument?" I would have said absolutely no and that I didn't think I was even capable of learning an instrument, I considered myself to be very non-musical; but not anymore. 1 star off because we've had a lot of cancellations and reschedules but that's partially my fault as well since our lessons are on Friday nights and he warned me he often plays gigs or has to travel to gigs on that night."

"What a great experience! I like Ray's approach and his willingness to share no nonsense remarks about his expectations. Yes, practice is key to becoming a good banjo player. Imagine that!
I appreciate the fact that Ray was so open in sharing the fact that many of his students underestimate the importance of regular practice. I whole-heartedly agree. Since we share the same philosophy and approach, this is the start of a great relationship. (Can't give it 5 stars though, solely because of the traffic. The lessons are worth the trip!)"

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.

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 …
