Over 10 years of teaching banjo I've taught students from beginners and casual bluegrass lovers to professional musicians and theater performers. I've studied Scruggs, melodic, and single-string style with the likes of Noam Pikelny, Greg Cahill, Bela Fleck, Kristin Scott Benson, and Alan Munde (my favorite!). Though I specialize in three-finger/bluegrass styles, I'm also proficient in teaching clawhammer and even tenor banjo. Using a combination of tabs and ear learning, within the first few lessons you'll learn the basics of picking, rolls, chords, melodies, and the philosophies of bluegrass banjo. From there we'll work toward your goals whether you want to play in traditional or progressive styles all while focusing on solid technique, rhythm, and lots of listening. In addition to technique, we'll learn plenty about the history of the banjo, music theory relevant to the banjo, and the many, many styles of music that we can play on it. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!
