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.

I teach beginner banjo in two styles; clawhammer (old-time) or Scruggs style (bluegrass).

Fiddle has been my main focus for the past eight years, and has become a defining and shaping force in my life. I have been actively growing food for abou

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!
David
Brian is fantastic. He quickly got a sense of where I am and customized our lessons just for me. Super knowledgeable, helpful and friendly!

Grant is obviously talented himself, but more than that, he is able to share that knowledge in a calm manner, yet be able to push you to do better each lesson. I would highly recommend him if you're just starting out or need help getting better. He is an incredible teacher."

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 …
