Private Banjo Teacher

I specialize in blues, rock and funk guitar on both the electric and acoustic, I also teach the electric bass and the banjo. I will teach-the fundamentals of music, ie. rhythm, melody and harmony, and then assist you on your journey to finding your own unique musical styling. I believe that music is the ultimate form of SELF expression so it is important that you tell me what inspires YOU and what your personal music goals are. Their are multiple ways to conceptualize the music and i will be your ally in finding what ways work best for you. i will customize lesson plans based on your personal music journey and where you want to get in your playing. whether you want to compose your own symphonies, write your own concept album, play some covers on the weekends, or just better yourself as a human being it would be my honor to teach you

I've played guitar since I was eight years old and various other stringed instruments for several years. I love the banjo sound and played a bit on my original album Heliotropism. I'd love to help novice players get their feet wet with the instrument, strumming and plucking away at their favorite songs.

Tyler is a wonder and talented musician who teaches. I have found the norm is that talented musicians play and the rest teach. Tyler does both wonderfully! He's a creative and encouraging teacher who know how to take complex material and explain it in a way anyone can understand! I highly recommend him to whoever is interested in learning a musical Instrument!

Online Banjo Teacher

I've been teaching banjo for 4 years helping students develop a love for the instrument and learn more about music along the way. My specialty is Scruggs style picking, but I'm also comfortable teaching clawhammer, reno, or melodic styles and enjoy working on hybrid and progressive styles, too. Within the first few lessons you'll have a solid base of picking and chord changes and even a few simple songs under your belt. Moving on from there I will craft lessons to move you toward a "goal song," making sure to cater your progress to your needs while keeping a focus on good technique. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!

Great first lesson, Ryan!
Vincent
He seemed angry and disinterested, not really wanting to teach the lesson. Bad experience and bad teacher in general.
Kian
Ryan is a fantastic teacher who's love of music shines through in his lessons. No question is too tangential or unimportant, and everything you ask will be answered in a depth you didn't even realize existed!

"HE IS AWESOME

I absolutely adored every second with Jason. Even though I was a complete novice, Jason was patient and created a very friendly environment. He encouraged me to choose the lesson plan. Also, knowing that the banjo is typically understood as a blue-grass and southern sound, he opened my ears to Sabbath on the banjo which blew me away and opened the doors to banjo-heavy metal style. He is very versatile and a kick-butt musician. The man can do anything. He is understanding, fun, and encouraging. He never gave-up on me, always made me feel talented and kept me motivated. I will continue to take lessons from Jason. From never touching an instrument before in my life to jamming T. Rex on the banjo in just a month, shows Jason is one great teacher. YOU ROCK!!"

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 …
