A very fun instrument to play. I tend to focus on Earl Scruggs style rolls, understanding and incorporating melody, and chords.

My TENOR 4 STRING BANJO (Irish tuning) teaching style consists of a fun, relaxed, and engaging student paced learning environment. My instruction is always tailored to my student's short term, and long term goals. My promise to you as my student is that together we will discover what it takes for you to become a proficient musician with the ability to perform in front of any audience. My classes with you will include the following content: • Warm up exercises • Fundamentals • Mindfulness techniques • Note reading • Tab reading • Sight reading • Left hand/ right hand techniques • Burst practicing (burnout prevention) • Micro movements/economy of motion • Proper posture both sitting and standing • Stage performance techniques • Embellishments • Improvisation • Unorthodox techniques • Scales and Keys • Theory • Fretboard mastery • Chords (all types) • Songwriting • Transcription • Memorization • Self sufficiency

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play recognizable tunes. First, starting off with simple arrangments and then building as you become more advanced. I typically use Banjo Primer, Claw Hammer Banjo Primer and "You Can Teach Yourself Banjo" These books break everything down and gets you up and running very quickly. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Beginner to intermediate. Banjo can be a difficult instrument at first. It requires a great deal of patience and persistence. But it's also an extremely rewarding instrument to learn. Banjo lessons typically center on Scruggs-style rolls, as well as building chord vocabulary.
