My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

Ed is an excellent piano teacher! He is kind, approachable, and great with kids. It is clear he is an experienced musician, we are most likely going to try guitar lessons with him as well!

Fantastic instructor. Ben started at the basic foundational instruction (including how best to hold the pick) and together we built a custom practice outline that has helped me to achieve my goals.

Learn to play either 5-string Clawhammer-Style Banjo, or 4-string Jazz Banjo!

Clawhammer lessons will focus on technique and repertoire building, as well as general musicality.

Jazz lessons will focus on technique, style, improvisational ideas, repertoire, music theory, and rhythmic strengthening. We will also spend time listening to historic recordings of jazz banjo players from the 1920s and 1930s.

Janette
I’ve only forgotten the pandemic when I’m playing the banjo with Jared. I crave clear criticism and he gives me the specifics so I can truly improve. Jared has all the qualities you want in an excellent music teacher, but what takes it to the next level for me as a student is his enthusiasm and gentle humor.

Highly recommend.

—Janette
Pauline
I knew nothing about the banjo when I started taking classes with Jared, and I learned so much in a short amount of time. He emphasized not just how to read sheet music, but also how to transcribe a song from a recording which helped me learn songs more quickly and play together with others in an ensemble. His passion and patience are a great combo for a teacher!
Ethan
I took lessons in clawhammer banjo with Jared, and learned quite a bit even though I started myself with clawhammer around 1958 or so. He was very thorough and a very pleasant person, and is very patient.

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 …
