This class is for students who have no experience on the banjo. We will start from scratch learning how to tune your instrument, how to hold the banjo, basic “clawhammer” technique, and simple tunes. Bring a working banjo and a recording device. A limited number of loaner banjos are available, please call to confirm.
This class is for students who have previous experience playing the banjo, but are still beginners. We will learn a few tunes and practice using hammer-ons and pull-offs to make simple tunes start to sound like classic old-time tunes!
This class features instruction on the style and sound popularized by Grandpa Jones, taught by his son, Mark. Students should have previous experience in playing the banjo with a desire to learn the techniques and sounds that made Grandpa and Mark, world renown players.
This class is for players who are ready to start including advanced techniques in their playing. We will experiment with drop-thumb, double thumb, and more. Students should be able to play quite a few tunes up to speed, know basic chord shapes, and have experience with hammer-ons and pull-offs.
