I've played guitar since I was eight years old and various other stringed instruments for several years. I love the banjo sound and played a bit on my original album Heliotropism. I'd love to help novice players get their feet wet with the instrument, strumming and plucking away at their favorite songs.

About Gio

I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums. I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is wha

s incredible as touring and performing can be, I have a huge passion for teaching banjo too. Whether you’re a complete beginner or an advanced player, it’s important to me to show you that banjo is not just a bluegrass instrument, but an incredibly versatile conduit to EVERY type of music.

Though I mostly teach three-finger style (from beginner to advanced lessons), I teach the occasional clawhammer lesson as well. We can talk about anything you’d like– I maintain the importance of keeping lessons personal and only going in the direction you want.

About David

Hey, my name is David Jones (Davey Jones if you’d like). I’ve been playing banjo for almost 25 years, more than 15 of which have been on a professional level. I’m a founding member of the Southeast Michigan indie band Frontier Ruckus, with whom I’ve played over a thousand shows across the U.

Clawhammer is the sound of the mountains to me, it is pure magic and total fun! I focus on the joy of music, lessons are meant to be fun and unstressed, like playing out on the lawn on a cool evening.

About Kyle

I am a music lover first and foremost, my roots are in mountain music, clawhammer banjo specifically. That music captured me from an early age and I hit the ground running with it. Though it didn't take long before I picked up other genres and instruments. Classical guitar quickly became one of my f

I am a banjoist from Texas with over 4 years of playing experience from self-teaching myself how to play the instrument through various books and contemporary methods. My style is 3-finger picking "Scruggs-style" Bluegrass but is also open for all genres including country and rock. I am excited to join this team in order to utilize my experience of 2 years in teaching in order to provide specialized lessons in beginner/intermediate levels and guaranteeing the utmost success for all of my students who choose to enroll and learn at a rate that they have never thought was possible through my unique self-teaching regimen that has allowed me to learn music independently for many years.

By enrolling, you will expect to receive whatever help and assistance you need in order to become a skilled banjoist. Such examples, but not limited to, include tab reading, music theory, tuning, sight reading, technique. Thank you for your time in reading!

"On 10/7/2019 I had my first banjo lesson with Nick Russo. Nick created a calm, relaxed atmosphere in his studio, he was clear when he gave me instructions about technique, and he was incredibly patient when demonstrating the correct way to play a particular passage. His knowledge of music theory in general, and of the five-string banjo in particular, is very impressive. I would recommend him highly both to a banjo beginner and to anyone (like myself) who is in need of a refresher course. I should mention that I have also taken lessons from Nick on the lap steel guitar, an instrument that I do not know well. Nick’s expertise on this rather obscure instrument, his teaching ability, and – it is worth mentioning again – his patience, made these sessions very enjoyable and productive. He is, by any measure, an outstanding instructor. He is also very nice guy, who clearly enjoys working with his students."

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 …
