Brian is an excellent teacher. We were able to dive right into the lesson and go through some techniques for me to practice on my own. It was obvious he knew what he was talking about ranging from music theory to instrument care. Highly recommend working with him if you want to learn the banjo.

Over 5 lessons in and Brian has proven to be knowledgeable, capable, and highly interested in helping me improve. He quickly zeroed in on my interests and puts effort into teaching the songs I like and styles I find fun. Every session feels streamlined and informative, leaving me excited to practice what I learned each time. My expectations have been greatly exceeded.

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!

Banjo is my newest instrument and a new passion. I have been teaching beginners to intermediate for over 10 years. I currently play banjo in a country band as well as on a couple songs in my rock band. I provide a core curriculum of technique and music knowledge as well as customizing to the student's interest. Traditional rolls, picking patterns, leads and chord strumming.

"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."

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 …
