Banjo lessons will begin by learning the basics of three-finger rolls and clawhammer technique. My philosophy on banjo playing is to begin by learning basic tunes and how to improvise over them.

About Anthony C.

Anthony has a great passion for working with students and helping them to succeed in achieving their own musical goals.

Through a focus on musicianship, music theory, and technique, Anthony hopes to cultivate student’s abilities to learn and comprehend music quickly and efficiently.
