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 (for example, scales and arpeggios as warmup exercises when you practice) keeping them 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. To do this, you will need finger picks, which we will use right away during your first lesson. Overcoming any obstacle is to face it right away and not put it off. Often times new banjo players will avoid using finger picks for various reasons, but I can assure you, once you get used to them, you will never look back!

I will help you sight read music (new songs) which is extremely useful should ...

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!!
Cody
Rhonda probably the best teacher I have ever had! for the many years that she taught me the violin, guitar, and trombone. she was always patient especially from the time I was young all the way till I was an “adult” preparing me for concerts and solo acts. Rhonda is a master of all and if you told her that you wanted to be the best triangle player or the best trumpet player she would make it happen. If there was an instrument that she has never used that you wanted to learn she would indefinitely buy it, become a master within the week and begin to teach you. She truly is the most genuine and talented person I have ever had the pleasure to work with!
Craig
I was very pleased at the progress of my first lesson. Rhonda is very patient and goes above and beyond to make this a great experience. I am looking forward to our next lesson.

Over 5 lessons in and Brian has proven to be knowledgeable, capable, and highly interested in helping me improve.

Every session feels streamlined and informative, leaving me excited to practice what I learned each time. My expectations have been greatly exceeded.

I love learning to play the ukulele! Brian is an excellent teacher. As I have a background in piano and some violin, Brian has helped me to integrate what I remember and apply it to the ukulele. He is friendly, interested, and patient. Most of all, he makes learning to play the ukulele fun! I highly recommend him for beginners on up!

Nick has done a great job with our 14 year old son! He has a great laid back style that is appreciated and keeps the lessons fun and engaging. Not only is he learning to play some of his favorite songs, but he is also getting ear training, music reading, picking, chord building, etc. We would highly recommend Nick!
Rachel
I would very highly recommend Nick as a guitar teacher. I've been taking lessons for five weeks and he has already helped me a lot with my technique. He has a great combination of the knowledge of a professional musician and also the patience and guidance of a very experienced teacher.

I also like that he is helping me with ear training. I've had previous experience with reading music, but he is really expanding my horizons with listening to music and trying to figure it out by using basic principles. This is a way to learn that I hadn't experience before in guitar lessons in the past, and I think it's a great way to learn.

I'm looking forward to many more lessons to come. This has really helped me to enjoy playing the guitar again!

Guitar Lessons
My teen daughter has been wanting to take guitar lessons for the last 3 years. Looking over Mr. Russo’s extensive qualifications, gave me pose in hiring him, after all she was so new she did not even know how to old a guitar, I figured he would be over kill. That plus the fact that he seems to tour a lot made me concerned that, once the pandemic receded he would be back to touring extensively, leaving us to find another teacher. I am glad I decided not to let my fear guide my decision because, he really is an excellent teacher. He put my teen who is people shy at rest, now you cannot tell her she is not the next Joni Mitchelle in the making. One of her favorite things to do after each of her lessons, is to FaceTime me(she is in boarding school) and enthusiastically show me what she is learning.

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 …
