Online Lessons

** If you are new to or needing a brush up on clawhammer banjo, I encourage you to try the subscription series, as I am currently only taking on a limited amount of new students for one-on-one online lessons via Zoom.  **

What I teach:

Banjo: (beginner/intermediate)  (clawhammer /frailing/ old-time style)  Depending on your interests we will focus on learning the key characteristics of this style via traditional tunes as well as improvisation. I also specialize in using banjo as an accompaniment for singing.     

Repertoire: Specializing in folk/country/roots/Americana music, I will introduce and help you learn material to increase your song repertoire.

Songwriting/Woodshedding:   Using various writing exercises and games, we'll work on the art of songwriting. If you already have songs but are feeling stuck in the same strum pattern, melody, groove, etc... I'm happy to work with you on ways to strengthen your work.
