Private Banjo Teacher

I teach old-time clawhammer banjo in the festival style, with an emphasis on backing up fiddle tunes.

I founded and played banjo for the first two records by Ragged Mountain String Band, and was awarded 5th place in the banjo competition at the Highland County Fiddler's Convention in Monterrey, Virginia. My approach to the instrument is an attempt at synthesizing Round Peak, African-American, and Festival styles.

I've been playing music since I was five years old (so, over 35 years now), beginning my 'stage career' as a saxophonist in school bands, then playing guitars, keyboards, accordions, mandolins, banjo, and bass in a variety of live acts throughout my adult life. I've made (as of January 2020) 16

My 9 year old daughter really liked Robert. She started from scratch and learned new skills, many notes and a couple of songs in 2 1/2 hours of lessons. She told me he was really nice and I was impressed with her progress. He was very easy to work with and was always prompt to the lessons.

He answered all my questions before I had to even ask them without talking down to me at the same time even though I’m a beginner. Loved it and can’t wait for more!

Marta B.
Thank you Damien!!!! Patient, non-judgmental, slow, clear instruction. I had one particular song I wanted to learn and Damien walked me through, step by step, how to. And in the meantime, taught me a bit about music theory and reading ... at my level. Before I signed up, I felt frustrated and overwhelmed. Now I feel confident and inspired ... taking my "sweet time" to get that muscle memory. The best. Thank you.
Mona
Damien explains the concept very well and asks questions to find out how much I already know. He tailors the classes to my abilities (I used to play piano and guitar) and interests. I am inspired to practise the techniques so I can play the music I chose. Just my third lesson and Damien is already introducing “improvisation” and that I was ready as long as I practise my scales. Being taught by Damien is exhilarating. Very blessed.
Ben Snyder
I really enjoyed my lesson and am very excited about learning to play the banjo and taking more lessons!

I have been playing banjo for about four years now as a supplement to my guitar playing. It has a been a real joy learning the different styles and techniques.

About Joe

I absolutely love teaching music! After over 20 years of teaching, performing, writing, and recording in all styles/genres, it continues to be a great adventure. It is a joy to pass this on to others...especially seeing my students that never touched the instrument going on to be very proficient

"What a great experience! I like Ray's approach and his willingness to share no nonsense remarks about his expectations. Yes, practice is key to becoming a good banjo player. Imagine that!
I appreciate the fact that Ray was so open in sharing the fact that many of his students underestimate the importance of regular practice. I whole-heartedly agree. Since we share the same philosophy and approach, this is the start of a great relationship. (Can't give it 5 stars though, solely because of the traffic. The lessons are worth the trip!)"

"Mark is an exceptional teacher. I have been taking banjo lessons with Mark, both bluegrass style and clawhammer. He is able to teach well so many other string instruments like ukelele, mandolin and guitar. His wide knowledge base allows him to help you with any instrument or situation. He is very patient, observant and detail oriented. I like that he is able to assess my issues quickly and provide good feedback. He builds confidence in you. The best thing that you can hear from Mark is "for you the best way to approach this...". His lessons are really tuned to you as an individual with the best plan and strategy that will work for you and your weaknesses and strengths. You end up doing things that you thought were too difficult for you just a week before. He's great!"

I had special needs as I'm old and already performing in public solo. He has tailored the lessons to my needs perfectly and I've learned a great deal in a very short period of time. I've recommended him to a couple of other musicians that I know. I plan to continue with him for quite a while."

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 …
