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.

I thought I wanted to take viola lessons. Then I read her website and I realized that she might be able to help me get my voice back! I thought there was no hope ever. She has been extremely generous with her time, and I haven't seen her yet, but I'm not buying the viola I was planning on buying. I play cello, and piano still, but I am going to see if she can help me with my voice. She sounds incredible. I never dreamed that I could even have HOPE like this!

Private Banjo Teacher

I teach 3-finger, 5-string banjo. My teaching style is fairly methodical and aimed to develop strong technique and musicianship. Students will use traditional bluegrass to build solid tone production and right hand technique. It is also important to develop the music theory required to understand how melodies and songs are constructed. I focus on using traditional tunes to exercise deeper musical ideas and technique, rather than learning song after song. I also push my students to get involved in the Boston bluegrass community, finding jams to suit their skill level.

I have been playing music since the age of four, from nationally competing string quartets to jazz combos to Balkan folk music, but devote the vast majority of my time to bluegrass banjo these days. I was a 2017 FreshGrass Banjo Award finalist and play in several folk and bluegrass bands around Boston.

About James

I started off with violin at the age of four, and picked up mandolin, guitar, and banjo in my teens. I focused on small ensemble playing, especially competitive string quartet. I bounced around from band to band and touched a lot of different genres. Classical gave me extremely solid technical foun

Frankie helped me with my clarinet tone within the first 15 minutes of the first lesson, and gave me many more helpful playing tips throughout the hour. He was really interested in what my goals were. Looking forward to many more lessons with Frankie.

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 …
