My TENOR 4 STRING BANJO (Irish tuning) teaching style consists of a fun, relaxed, and engaging student paced learning environment. My instruction is always tailored to my student's short term, and long term goals. My promise to you as my student is that together we will discover what it takes for you to become a proficient musician with the ability to perform in front of any audience. My classes with you will include the following content: • Warm up exercises • Fundamentals • Mindfulness techniques • Note reading • Tab reading • Sight reading • Left hand/ right hand techniques • Burst practicing (burnout prevention) • Micro movements/economy of motion • Proper posture both sitting and standing • Stage performance techniques • Embellishments • Improvisation • Unorthodox techniques • Scales and Keys • Theory • Fretboard mastery • Chords (all types) • Songwriting • Transcription • Memorization • Self sufficiency
