I have been playing bluegrass banjo for over 20 years, and have performed for events such as Thanksgiving dinners at hotels, folk clubs, bluegrass festivals, and fundraisers. In addition to playing and teaching banjo, I play and teach guitar and piano, with guitar being my main instrument.

Banjo:
If country picking, blue grass, or even pop/rock is a favorite of yours then banjo is a really fun instrument to learn. As with all instruments I teach, we would start with basics and in no time the be picking and strumming away on songs you love. I also incorporate learning the notes, chords, theory, and picking, strumming, techniques and rhythms to become a well rounded musician.

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Karen is very patient & caring while teaching.

I will definitely be expanding my accordion skills & of music theory . I’ll also be adding some 😎 Jazz Standards to my repertoire ☺️.

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.

Taught at the basic level very well. If you know nothing about music or guitar Tommy's your guy. Goes through all the simple steps at an even pace making the entire experience relaxing. From there giving you the knowledge of your scales and blues scales, teaching you how to make mini solos on the spot really helps out with the musicality of it all. 10/5

If you are brand new to learning the banjo and would really enjoy learning the basics of strumming, chords and finger picking, then I would love to help you learn these basic principles. As your skills progress, one of the things we can do that will be fun are duets! This will help you become comfortable playing in a group whether in church, a band or a local folk jamming session!
My goal is for you to look forward to each lesson and enjoy our time together.
I’ve taught banjo for over 30 years and I look forward to helping you whether it be for yourself or your child.

Rhonda probably the best teacher I have ever had! for the many years that she taught me the violin, guitar, and trombone. she was always patient especially from the time I was young all the way till I was an “adult” preparing me for concerts and solo acts. Rhonda is a master of all and if you told her that you wanted to be the best triangle player or the best trumpet player she would make it happen. If there was an instrument that she has never used that you wanted to learn she would indefinitely buy it, become a master within the week and begin to teach you. She truly is the most genuine and talented person I have ever had the pleasure to work with!
Craig
I was very pleased at the progress of my first lesson. Rhonda is very patient and goes above and beyond to make this a great experience. I am looking forward to our next lesson.
Emma
I began taking violin lessons from Rhonda at age 5 and eventually added guitar, mandolin, and an occasional vocal opportunity:) I learned so much from her over the years (approx 4) including proper technique, patience, & self discipline. I continue to be active in music & vocal performance in the community at age 18. Rhonda is a great teacher and person!

"My 13 year old daughter, Payton, and I enjoyed our first lesson tremendously! Edwin was so patient with both of us and explained things thoroughly yet simply enough that someone with zero experience, such as myself, wasn't overwhelmed. He politely corrected or pointed out our mistakes while letting us try to figure it out on our own. He was kind enough to let me take notes and repeat himself on an instruction if necessary. We're both already encouraged and looking forward to our next lesson next week. I would highly recommend Edwin to anyone any age regardless of their experience."

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 …
