Private Banjo Teacher

Looking for someone to help you reach that next level? Whatever your stringed instrument, I can guide you there. From the rank basics to traditional tunes, to timing and tone, technique and theory, I can show you what you need to make your journey easier. Rely on my 15 years of music teaching experience to save you countless hours of bewilderment and frustration!

My journey as a musician which began at the age of 8 has now carried me to 48 states and a dozen countries, including 4 tours in continental Europe. I spent 7+ years performing, recording, and giving workshops with talented acoustic acts based in Nashville and the southeast. I am lucky to have been involved and contributed to a handful of IBMA and Grammy-nominated albums.

Increasingly, however, I turn my focus toward private teaching.
I find great joy and pride in helping a student reach their goals and surprise themselves with their own potential.
Go ahead and get in touch, and let's try a session together!

I like to make learning an instrument fun and easy to fit into your schedule!

If you're an adult finally getting around to learning your dream instrument or a child following your passion of playing music I tailor your lessons specifically to you. We look at what you want to play, pick specific songs that you want to learn, and learn the techniques you need to play these songs. It sounds simple, but it's so effective and much more fun to learn this way!

Mel has done a fantastic job getting me started on Mandolin. I have a tiny bit of musical background, and he has been able to help me quickly move to where I need to be in order to challenge me to grow. I highly reccomend him.
Patrick K.
Mel is incredible and a very thoughtful instructor. He takes the time to make sure you understand the concepts and works with you to make sure you progress in an efficient logical way. He really spends the time with you and you feel like he is as committed to your learning experience as you are. I would recommend him for anyone looking for lessons and I am excited to keep studying the fiddle and violin with him.

"My 13 year old daughter, Payton, and I enjoyed our first lesson tremendously! Edwin was so patient with both of us and explained things thoroughly yet simply enough that someone with zero experience, such as myself, wasn't overwhelmed. He politely corrected or pointed out our mistakes while letting us try to figure it out on our own. He was kind enough to let me take notes and repeat himself on an instruction if necessary. We're both already encouraged and looking forward to our next lesson next week. I would highly recommend Edwin to anyone any age regardless of their experience."

"Mike has done a great job teaching me. In a year and a half, I have gone from never playing a stringed instrument, to being able to jam with friends and family. I learned basic three-finger Scruggs style bluegrass banjo, and I making moves now to become an intermediate player. I really recommend Mike. He is kind and warm-hearted, and works with you to meet you where you are and improve your game. I now know about 10 songs that I can play lead on, and I can roll or vamp as back-up on any other bluegrass song. Mike has set me up now to work with intermediate techniques. Mike will help you learn!"

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 …
