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.

Mark has been wonderful! He has the knowledge of music theory and a lifetime of experience playing the banjo as a professional musician. He understands the importance of that feeling of accomplishment for a beginner, all while maintaining appropriate challenges for the student to aim for. He is easy to talk to and is always encouraging, which makes me feel comfortable to make mistakes as I learn more techniques at faster tempos. I would highly recommend Mark to anyone who is remotely interested in the banjo!
Ze D.
Mark is a great teacher. He is patient, flexible and quick at spotting what you are doing wrong and how you can improve it. I am a novice banjo player, and have been struggling for the longest time with some basic issues. Mark has been helping me move past these fundamental difficulties, and it has been fun too.

I've played guitar since I was eight years old and various other stringed instruments for several years. I love the banjo sound and played a bit on my original album Heliotropism. I'd love to help novice players get their feet wet with the instrument, strumming and plucking away at their favorite songs.

About Gio

I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums. I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is wha

Sure had fun and Gio gave me a lot of homework. This is good. I'm starting to get a good understanding of the Harmonica.

If you want an in depth program which I recommend or if you are a person who wants to learn a few songs that's ok. If you are a newbie there are basics you need: hand position, tuning the banjo and learning a few basic rolls and simple chords. I can teach you Scruggs style, Don Reno style, Bill Keith Melodic Style, Pat Cloud Jazz style or other areas one wants to pursue.
I don't like to teach 1/2 hr lessons as it seems to short a time for a good lesson. If you insist I can do a 1/2hr lesson. I hate to add this, so many people will not practice and they lose interest quickly. I took lessons with Bill Keith every week and he told me if I didn't practice he would know it and cut me back to bi-weekly lessons and if I persisted with no practice he would fire me. He said I don't want to waste my time nor your father's money. It is worth the time to practice even though you can't see the point but suddenly you will reach a plateau where you sound great. By the way I never ...

About THOMAS

I'm patient with my students and my main goal is to have them learn something that will give them pleasure in their life and the possibility of performing later on. If a student wants to go far then I can give him or her more in depth chord theory on the banjo and different scales like Pentatonic,

About Judy

In my early childhood, my parents owned a 77-acre riding stable. There was a radio in the barn that was always on “for the horses” and a jukebox (dating myself here) in the clubhouse. I loved hearing all those songs (of the ‘60’s) and singing along! One day, a man came to ride and also br

Just has taught two of my kids. Currently acoustic guitar and previously ukele with an exchange student. She was wonderful with my German daughter and teaching her to read music and use an instrument. Just keeps my ADHD son on task and challenges his fast moving brain using several techniques, practice methods, and pieces simultaneously. She's patient when he gets off task and quickly shifts gears when he needs a different explanation.

Beginner banjo lessons. Basic technique, chords, strumming. So much fun playing songs!
Disclaimer: I am not a traditional bluegrass player. I am finding many students nowadays that enjoy the sound of banjo, but want to play modern music with it. I have had a great deal of success with this type of student, but advise anyone looking for traditional scruggs lessons to seek that out. Thanks!

"This produst was a great way to find a banjo teacher, when we had no idea where to even start looking.

Mrs. Fegan is a great instructor, who can explain things on all levels to make sure your child is truly learning. She has a fun disposition and you can tell she really enjoys teaching. My son loves her, learns more than just the banjo at lessons. She is very patient, yet expects my son to do his part too. We have been with her for a year, and now my son has added Baritone lessons as well, because of the encouragement and support, and respect she gives my son. Best teacher we have ever had! I truly believe Mrs. Fegan could teach my son anything, because she teaches the way a person seems to learn at their own ability."

He is so dedicated to his students being successful that he even emails me audio files of him playing guitar over a song I'm learning so I have someone to practice with.

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 …
