Learning to play the banjo can be a ton of fun. I offer lessons for people of all skill levels and all playing situations. I can especially teach guitarists how to translate their existing skills and knowledge onto the banjo through a simple conversion method. This expedites the learning progress and produces immediate results.
All styles and levels
My goal is to establish a solid base with you for frailing and clawhammer techniques then help you establish your own style / voice with the banjo.
I emphasize learning to play with others, being creative, and helping you to always move forward.
I even have an extra banjo for you to use during our lesson if you don't have one yet.
I have been teaching five-string banjo for about a year, and played for about 9. I do not teach from a book, though I am happy to work with any instructional material the student is currently using. With beginners, I start by showing simple chords and easy, catchy songs, and an overview of different music that has been played on the five-string banjo. For intermediate and more advanced students, I will focus more on the technical aspects of the student's playing style (clawhammer, or three-finger "bluegrass" with picks) and help them to be able to play with others, and eventually develop good timing and musical taste.
