Banjo is my newest instrument and a new passion. I have been teaching beginners to intermediate for over 3 years. I currently play banjo in a country band as well as on a couple songs in my rock band. I provide a core curriculum of technique and music knowledge as well as customizing to the student's interest. Traditional rolls, clawhammer and chord strumming.

I have been playing banjo for about six years now as a supplement to my guitar playing. It has a been a real joy learning the different styles and techniques.

About Joe

I absolutely love teaching music! After over 20 years of teaching, performing, writing, and recording in all styles/genres, it continues to be a great adventure. It is a joy to pass this on to others...especially seeing my students that never touched the instrument going on to be very proficient

My two sons (ages 8 and 6) have been taking ukulele lessons with Nick Russo via Zoom for about 5 months. I have been very impressed with the lessons in every way. He is teaching them ear training, reading music, and technique on the instrument. He is clearly an extremely talented musician, and he is an amazing teacher (I am speaking here as a teacher with many years of studying music in my background). He is able to hold their focus for the entire lesson and redirect them if needed; he breaks the lessons into small chunks to keep them engaged throughout; he mixes music they know with pieces he’s chosen so they are always excited about what they are playing; and he is always positive and patient with them.
Paul
Nick R. is truly an extraordinary guitar instructor. He is brimming with technical proficiency, enthusiasm, and a communication skill set that is unparalleled. His ability to hone in on exactly what you are doing wrong and right for that matter means you make progress rapidly and naturally. And he is a nice guy too!!
Christina S.
Such a great teacher! I am an absolute beginner, but feel I am getting better every lesson. Plus, so fun! A +++++

"I started working with Aaron a few months ago. Previously, I had never even picked up a banjo. Aaron has shown a great deal of patience and expertise with me in my practice. Since I began, I have learned some basics and have gained a pretty good understanding of this instrument and how it works. With Aaron's tutelage, I have learned to play 4 - 5 songs within a 2 1/2 month period of time! I would highly recommend Aaron as a teacher/coach to anyone interested in learning to play the banjo or guitar. Not only is he an extremely gifted musician, but he can teach as well!"

"Mike is a super musician himself, but he has met me at my true-beginning level. Mike has a way of making you feel very comfortable while imparting proper techniques and advice. He is very patient with my beginning fumbles, while challenging me to make some progress each week. I really recommend him as a teacher. In three weeks, I have three songs I am working on and four finger rolls, with advice on how to learn to be more smooth when chording. This pace was adjusted for myself, as he will adjust to your own current level. You get some funny stories too (always helps)."

"Nick took me on as a banjo student and did an amazing job of quickly finding out how much I already knew and then ran with it, pushing me further while letting me direct us into areas that I wanted to pursue. He's very patient and insanely knowledgable. Every lesson has been packed with a ton of information, practice, instruction and music theory. (He's also a very nice guy to have a conversation with.) I couldn't recommend Nick highly enough as an instructor."

"Antonio has been involved in the teaching and learning of music since his earliest years and it has been such a thrill and a delight to watch his talent grow. Not only is Antonio a top-notch musician who is in demand at festivals and other venues, but he is personable and easy going which makes his ability to teach even better. I have first hand knowledge of his ability to work with younger students which is a rare gift that not all musicians can do successfully. Yet, even at his "younger than some others" age, he has the respect and the ability to teach students of all ages. I recommend Antonio on mandolin and banjo in particular but I have no doubt he is excellent on guitar as well. Another wonderful characteristic of a great teacher is their own personal journey in learning. Antonio is always seeking the expertise and advise from other great instructors which is an important part of teaching that is often overlooked. Antonio is truly the complete package and you will be well pleased with his services."

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 …
