“There is no real reason as to why a box covered in strings is able to move a crowd of thousands to tears other than pure magic.”

Based out of Philadelphia, PA, I seek to help musicians reach their potential through positive and self guided practice focused on the individual learning styles of each student. Whether you are looking to begin your musical journey, or are looking to expand it in a different direction, I’d love to help.

Private Banjo Teacher

Julie taught herself to play clawhammer banjo, influenced by various Appalachian instrumentalists and accompanists (including Dock Boggs, Clarence Ashley, Hobart Smith, and Lily May Ledford), but her style is also influenced by years of playing with midwestern and southern-style dance fiddlers.
I offer lessons in clawhammer (down-picked) banjo, from basic technique to drop-thumb style, the "Galax lick," sweeping the strings, approaches to song accompaniment, use of tunings, and much more.

Julie is a versatile teacher, having experience in several styles and instruments. She's patient and eager to adapt herself to the student's desired guitar style. Give her a try!
Jeanne
We had some trouble with the audio on her end, but once we got going, it went well. I spoke and understood a lot of French in my first hour! Julie is going to help me with singing in French. I'm so excited.

I highly reccommend Kenton! My 10 year old son has been taking lessons online for the past couple of months. My son is an absolute beginner, however, is progressing quickly through the curriculum. Kenton is a fantastic teacher, knowledgable, patient, and kind. He keeps the lessons fun, age appriopriate and challenging. Choosing Kenton as our Mountain Dulcimer instructor has been the best decision for us. Give Kenton a try; you won't regret it!

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play recognizable Bluegrass tunes. First, starting off with simple arrangments and then building as you become more advanced. I typically use "You Can Teach Yourself Banjo" It breaks 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 is a knowledgeable, friendly and patient teacher.

I would highly recommend Eric at House of Music for guitar lessons. I am after a certain style of guitar music using finger picking to play for my special needs son. I have learned that not all teachers are familiar with this style. Thankfully, Eric is great at it. He is also teaching me how to read music and not just play the chords or tab which is something I had overlooked. I am thankful he has been able to work with me and my unique set of circumstances and help me reach my goals.

Eric Lesko taught my son Brian guitar 18 years ago when Brian was a teenager. My son got to a point that he didn't want to practice and we were thinking about giving up the lessons. However, Eric got Brian playing whatever kind of music my son was interested in and he continued taking for a few years thereafter, completely enjoying it. When I decided to take up the guitar around eight years ago, Eric was the first and only instructor I thought of. Besides being very capable musically, he is willing to move in any direction that you want in order to keep you interested and helping you achieve your goals. He always has suggestions on ways to approach a particular piece in order to make playing fun and not frustrating. He is also well-versed in the use of technology to make playing a continuum as you gain skills, making a huge difference in being able to get more out of practice. Finally, he is conveniently located in a new facility in downtown Oviedo and he is very flexible with lesson days and times. Eric's greatest asset is that he wants the student to enjoy playing as much as he does!

I have been playing and teaching banjo since 2006, and I'm always very excited to introduce new students to this unique instrument. I focus on the "Scruggs-style" method of playing 5-string banjo, and we'll work on techniques used in common bluegrass and folk tunes. As you advance, I'll help you in creating your own banjo solo breaks.

So far so good. Very patient as mistakes after mistake was made. Corrected quite a few mistakes I was making so that my habits would be good habits from the start. Let me talk to myself as I messed up and complimented me when I was on the right track.

Great lesson! Thanks!
Robert C.
complete novice; adult student. First lesson very relaxed. Excellent blend through-out lesson of questions and information my goals and background as well as instructor's goals for me and his background. First "technical" part of lesson was manageable and care taken by Lyle to make sure I understood what was being presented. I left the first lesson feeling this would be a good fit between instructor and student

"When Ryan accepted me as a student almost 2-1/2 years ago, he took on the daunting task of teaching both mandolin and banjo to a complete novice...who also happened to be nearly 70 years old! Ryan is a technically accomplished professional player who patiently encourages and supports his students as they find their own musical voices. He himself is a broadly cultured and serious student of musical theory, who welcomes and is happy to answer questions about why things do - or don’t! - work musically. Studying with Ryan has been a splendid experience, and an excellent investment of time and money."

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 …
