Private Banjo Teacher

Beginner to intermediate.
Banjo can be a difficult instrument at first. It requires a great deal of patience and persistence. But it's also an extremely rewarding instrument to learn.
Banjo lessons typically center on Scruggs-style
rolls, as well as building chord vocabulary.

Private Banjo Teacher

Nothing can beat seeing an experienced person playing banjo, except being able to ask that person questions and get answers. One on one private lessons are what I offer in a comfortable, relaxed environment. I can show you exactly how to make all the moves for playing correctly. This makes progress exponentially faster.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.
Romy R.
Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

Online Banjo Teacher

I have been playing bluegrass banjo for over 20 years, and have performed for events such as Thanksgiving dinners at hotels, folk clubs, bluegrass festivals, and fundraisers. In addition to playing and teaching banjo, I play and teach guitar and piano, with guitar being my main instrument. I am no Earl Scruggs, but I am a great teacher for beginners and intermediate players. As a teacher, I am patient, intuitive, and always tailor the lessons to fit the interests and learning styles of each individual student.

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.

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 …
