Private Banjo Teacher

I specialize in 5-string banjo, using the three-finger (bluegrass) technique. More specifically, I use a hybrid style of Scruggs/Melodic/Reno bluegrass techniques.

Banjo is the cure for sadness. Fact. It is also an incredibly diverse instrument, capable of playing simple chord accompaniments, or playing hyper-complicated Bach Sonatas (seriously, it's a thing).

Lessons with me will cover anything and everything from basic chord shapes and picking patterns (rolls), to single note techniques, melodic playing, scales, improvising, song tabs, chord charts, song writing, jamming with friends, and playing by ear.

For banjo I usually assign listening homework to my students. I feel that music appreciation is a huge component of being a good musician.

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.

Wonderful instructor! I'm finally getting rid of my old bad habits. I very much look forward to every new lesson. Highly recommended.

Zander is extremely knowledgable and has the ability to communicate that knowledge in an easy tower and way. Great teacher!
David Otto
I am a first time stringed instrument student. Zander has a talent for structuring lessons to make me 'work' to see progress. He is patient and answers my questions in a manner that make sense. I'm fortunate to have connected with him. Given his multi instrument proficiency and obvious knowledge base I can't help but recommend his teaching skills.

Are Heavy Metal Banjos The Next Big Thing?

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 …
