Private Banjo Teacher

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 :)

Evan
I have been learning tenor banjo (Irish tuning) from Matt. Although I'm a complete beginner, Matt has been a very patient teacher. He balances lessons between learning songs and music theory. His wit and humor make every lesson enjoyable.
Sydney
I've been taking lessons from Matt for more than 8 years now since I was young and he's super friendly and encouraging! Highly recommend as he has experience with many different areas of guitar and that offers freedom to learn whatever you want.
Luke Lehman
Matt is able to spot small things that make a big difference in a musician's journey no matter how far along they are. His demeanor puts his students at ease, and always encourages and builds up. I'd recommend Matt to anyone, at any level, wanting to grow as a musician!!

Looking for someone to help you reach that next level? Whatever your stringed instrument, I can guide you there. From the rank basics to traditional tunes, to timing and tone, technique and theory, I can show you what you need to make your journey easier. Rely on my 15 years of music teaching experience to save you countless hours of bewilderment and frustration!

My journey as a musician which began at the age of 8 has now carried me to 48 states and a dozen countries, including 4 tours in continental Europe. I spent 7+ years performing, recording, and giving workshops with talented acoustic acts based in Nashville and the southeast. I am lucky to have been involved and contributed to a handful of IBMA and Grammy-nominated albums.

Increasingly, however, I turn my focus toward private teaching.
I find great joy and pride in helping a student reach their goals and surprise themselves with their own potential.
Go ahead and get in touch, and let's try a session together!

The combination of being a really nice guy and he knows what he's doing, makes having a lesson with Bryan enjoyable, informative and gives me the sense that I'm a better fiddle player when the lesson is over from when it started.

We are going to HAVE FUN! I will be customizing your lessons to your needs, your skill level, your age, and most importantly, what you would like to learn on the Banjo.
I give lessons on the 5 string banjo, so if you still need to buy a banjo and you decide to have me as your teacher, please be sure to purchase a 5 string banjo.

I will be including the basic fundamentals such as fretting exercises and picking patterns that will be used as warmup exercises. I want to keep this fun, not grueling or boring. You will learn how to strum chords and finger-pick, which is the most common method of playing the banjo. Even though you see many banjo players using finger picks, I like to start all of my students using their fingers without picks. This helps the student to learn the strings with ease, which makes learning fun instead of frustrating, which can happen when using finger picks. They tend to fall off, the ability to feel for the correct string is greatly inhibited, which causes a ...

My ten year old granddaughter has zip experience with any musical instrument, but she elected to try the saxophone. Rhonda is an excellent instructor. Her praise is genuine and her corrections are gentle. My granddaughter’s comment after her first thirty minute lesson was, “ That was a short lesson..only about five minutes!” That says it all! Highly recommend Rhonda!
Catherine
Such a fun enjoyable first lesson!
Lois K.
Rhonda was knowledgeable, fun and professional. She started where I was at and moved me along at my own pace. The music choices were great. Challenging but absolutely doable. Can't wait for my next lesson!!

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 …
