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.

I have been playing bluegrass banjo for over 20 years, and have performed for events such as Thanksgiving dinners at hotels, folk clubs, bluegrass festivals, and fundraisers. In addition to playing and teaching banjo, I play and teach guitar and piano, with guitar being my main instrument. I am no Earl Scruggs, but I am a great teacher for beginners and intermediate players. As a teacher, I am patient, intuitive, and always tailor the lessons to fit the interests and learning styles of each individual student.

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!

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!
