I can teach five string bluegrass, old time or folk banjo playing or four string tenor banjo. I can give you the basics of chords as well as the types of right hand technique you need to pick or pluck.

Fantastic instructor. Ben started at the basic foundational instruction (including how best to hold the pick) and together we built a custom practice outline that has helped me to achieve my goals.
