Scruggs Style Bluegrass 5-String Banjo

About Mike

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!

I have been taking banjo lessons with Mike for two months. The instruction has been really useful for me. I debated for a long time about whether or not to take formal lessons. I am so glad that I did. Mike is a very good musician and instructor. I am progressing and enjoying the experience. I highly recommend him as an instructor.
Billy C.
First lesson was great. I was nervous, but Mike put me at ease and made me feel right at home. The lesson flew by, and I can't wait until we meet again.

Jonathan is truly outstanding. I was fortunate enough to meet him and begin working on guitar again with him in person when he lived in Virginia. He was so helpful I have continued lessons online and I continue to feel the quality and what I'm getting out of the lessons is as good as when we were able to be in the same room. The best thing I can probably say is that I have really enjoyed learning from such an accomplished musician while never feeling intimidated or thinking, "he must think I really stink at this!" He's very supportive and will make you a better player...whatever that means to you.

Jonathan is a wonderful teacher. I would recommend him to others for lessons.

Fun classical guitar lessons. Very knowledgeable and thorough teacher. My son really enjoyed his lessons.
Jim K.
I've been self-taught for roughly 3 years and sought lessons to help me get out of the rut that I felt I was in.

Nick has exceeded my expectations. More than just a great banjoist, Nick is a fantastic all around musician. He's intimately familiar with genres of music I've never even heard of and is able to disseminate his vast knowledge of technique and theory into easy to understand lessons. One of my favorite things about Nick is he completely caters himself to you and your goals. On day 1, we laid down goals that I wanted to pursue, and every single lesson since has been centered around getting me there. Never once has Nick tried to trump what I thought was important to work on, he just works with me and helps me lay the ground work that I need to get moving closer to where I want to be. The other thing I really enjoy about Nick’s lessons is that he’s always respectful of me as an individual, and the environment that Nick sets up for his students often times make me feel like I'm just learning from an old friend rather than the expert, tenured, musician that he truly is. He has my highest recommendation to anyone looking to better their own musicianship.
Jabari K. Noel
Nick is an incredible instructor! He was able to prepare me for a professional guitar audition with in 2 hour long lessons. His attention to detail and deep understanding of advanced musical techniques makes him a gem of a teacher, and a pleasure to work with. Will definitely continue lessons!

Lynn gets down to basics from the get-go. Starting with tuning and the correct way to hold the banjo, she progresses to proper finger positions and chord structure from fret to fret. By the way, she's also very personable, and seems to enjoy a laugh from time to time.

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!

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 …
