The banjo is America's instrument. More and more people these days are being drawn to its authentic rootsy twang. Together we will learn how to really make the banjo sing when you pick it. Claw hammer or bluegrass style is welcome.

About Evan M.

I am a singer, songwriter and guitarist. I love folk music, bluegrass, country, blues and all forms of Americana! One of the best things about folk music is it's meant to be shared with others. I've been mastering these forms of music for the past ten years.

*** Lesson Details ***
Developing great technique and understanding the principles behind music theory are huge foundations for learning your instrument. I’ll focus on both of these ideas in our lessons. Feel free to bring specific songs or questions. We’ll work together to learn and understand the material. At the end of the lesson, you can record me going over what we’ve learned and take it home to work with on your own!

*** Studio Equipment ***
The kind of music I teach doesn't require much equipment. Just bring your instrument and some kind of recording device.

*** Specialties ***
My expertise lies in folk and acoustic music, but I incorporate aspects of rock, jazz and blues into my playing and teaching as well.

Excellant Teacher

Evan is patient, understanding and most of all an excellent teacher. He rolls with you at your pace. I feel I have learned more from him with my banjo in a very short period of time than I have learned in a couple of years of guitar. He is fantastic!!

Very impressed

I have had two lessons with Evan so far, and I always schedule my next lesson at the end of each session, as I'm so excited to go back and learn more. Not only are the lessons very informative, and helpful, but he sends me home with video of what we had gone over in the day. This is extremely helpful! When I practice, I have something to revert back to, to help me remember exactly everything he taught me.

We'll be taking more lessons from Evan

Evan is a talented musician and a good teacher. He is very open and able to teach what the student is interested in learning. He is also able to teach different techniques which enable the student to discover which methods work best for them. My girlfriend and I have taken 2 lessons from him so far and we plan on taking more in the future.
