Let's play the banjo! I have played bluegrass for over 10 years and picked up the banjo somewhere along the way. It's so much fun! I'd love to spread the joy of banjo. I have taught in middle and high schools for over 4 years and I will use everything I have learned about teaching to make sure that you have fun learning and playing the banjo. Let's get started, already!

Teaching since:

Hi! Sam, here! I have taught Latin & Greek for years and have played music for pretty much my whole life. The majority of my musical experience is in Bluegrass and folk settings, but I can also read music and teach you standard musical theory. I earned a BA in Classics - Latin & Greek Literature from Brooklyn College in 2015 and have been teaching classical languages and history in middle and high school classrooms since then. I would love to use my experience as a teacher to make sure you're engaged and having fun from day one!

Sam Brown is patient, knowledgeable, delightful, and finds the correct lessons to suit your needs and help you form your playing style. He can teach all bluegrass instruments. Singing too! Great teacher!

Greek · In studio

I have taken lessons in Ancient Greek with Sam for eight months. He is an excellent teacher who is patient, helpful, and encouraging. He brings not only a thorough Knowledge of Greek but also of Latin. If I had more time, I would add Latin to the classes I take with him.

I highly recommend him to anyone interested in studying classical languages.
