A note on my approach:
What I find is many online programs' primary focus is on teaching tunes. Sure, you'll have a full booklet of material, but many people come to me with this material unable to actually play it. They might robotically make their way through the tune, but the musicality is not there.
My focus for this course is less on loading you up with repertoire and more on giving you the confidence to go out and learn the tunes that YOU WANT to learn because you will have skills and understanding of how to play clawhammer banjo. The tunes I do introduce are taught because I feel like they exemplify a certain technique I want you to master.
