Scruggs Style Bluegrass 5-String Banjo

Mike has done a great job teaching me. In a year and a half, I have gone from never playing a stringed instrument, to being able to jam with friends and family. I learned basic three-finger Scruggs style bluegrass banjo, and I making moves now to become an intermediate player. I really recommend Mike. He is kind and warm-hearted, and works with you to meet you where you are and improve your game. I now know about 10 songs that I can play lead on, and I can roll or vamp as back-up on any other bluegrass song. Mike has set me up now to work with intermediate techniques. Mike will help you learn!

I have been taking banjo lessons with Mike for two months. The instruction has been really useful for me. I debated for a long time about whether or not to take formal lessons. I am so glad that I did. Mike is a very good musician and instructor. I am progressing and enjoying the experience. I highly recommend him as an instructor.

First lesson was great. I was nervous, but Mike put me at ease and made me feel right at home. The lesson flew by, and I can't wait until we meet again.

Private Banjo Teacher

I've been teaching banjo for 4 years helping students develop a love for the instrument and learn more about music along the way. My specialty is Scruggs style picking, but I'm also comfortable teaching clawhammer, reno, or melodic styles and enjoy working on hybrid and progressive styles, too. Within the first few lessons you'll have a solid base of picking and chord changes and even a few simple songs under your belt. Moving on from there I will craft lessons to move you toward a "goal song," making sure to cater your progress to your needs while keeping a focus on good technique. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!

Michelle is a wonderful teacher! She is patient and motivating, and helped me to set specific goals that advanced my classical guitar playing. I now have 4-5 pieces under my fingers that are so much fun for me to play and also taught me new techniques.

I've been learning the banjo from Michelle for the past 18 months. Never touched a musical instrument before. Now have learned a dozen clawhammer tunes and four banjo tunings. Michelle is amazing...so patient but keeps you moving! I highly recommend her.

I have been playing banjo for about six years now as a supplement to my guitar playing. It has a been a real joy learning the different styles and techniques.

About Joe

I absolutely love teaching music! After over 20 years of teaching, performing, writing, and recording in all styles/genres, it continues to be a great adventure. It is a joy to pass this on to others...especially seeing my students that never touched the instrument going on to be very proficient

"Have been taking lesson from Edwin for about a month. He has really helped me adjust to learning an instrument without any musical experience at all.
Patience of a saint, really knows what he is doing. He has come up with a way to teach me at my own pace and level of understanding, yet ever so slightly helps push me to the next lesson. My confidence stays high!
I can not recommend Edwin enough, his style of helping me learn is top notch."

"My son said he wanted to take banjo lessons. I asked him to look on-line to find someone in our area. He came back to me to say that he had found exactly who he wanted to teach him, and it was Aaron. I was quite skeptical that an on-line lesson could actually be productive, but I said we could try it and see. And so happy we did. Aaron is such a great teacher! He is actually able to teach on-line and teach really well. My son has made a lot of progress in playing claw hammer banjo. Aaron is completely positive and always encouraging, and my son thinks he's the greatest! I do too!"

"I started working with Aaron a few months ago. Previously, I had never even picked up a banjo. Aaron has shown a great deal of patience and expertise with me in my practice. Since I began, I have learned some basics and have gained a pretty good understanding of this instrument and how it works. With Aaron's tutelage, I have learned to play 4 - 5 songs within a 2 1/2 month period of time! I would highly recommend Aaron as a teacher/coach to anyone interested in learning to play the banjo or guitar. Not only is he an extremely gifted musician, but he can teach as well!"

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 …
