Although I have been a professional fretted stringed instrument instructor since 1989, Banjo is my newest instrument. I am genuinely passionate about your success in becoming the best banjo player you choose to be! I like to teach with repetition (wax on wax off) and prefer to present the big picture first so that every obstacle may potentially never be an obstacle for you. I take years of teaching experience and what have been topics of frustration brought to me by students in the past. I try to smooth the road and teach you, so you get the highest yield of success for your money with as few headaches as possible :)

About Greg

Hey musician! I am EXTREMELY excited to help you get to your best potential through lots of flight hours as quickly as you like! I hope you will pick me to help you avoid common setbacks in your progress. I look forward to helping you be your best on your instrument! I play fretted and fretles

Beginner banjo lessons. Basic technique, chords, strumming. So much fun playing songs!
Disclaimer: I am not a traditional bluegrass player. I am finding many students nowadays that enjoy the sound of banjo, but want to play modern music with it. I have had a great deal of success with this type of student, but advise anyone looking for traditional scruggs lessons to seek that out. Thanks!
