I play and teach both clawhammer and fingerpicking banjo styles. As a performer, I mostly play traditional and contemporary classical music, though I also have performed and recorded quite a bit of folk music on banjo. I enjoy working with clawhammer students as they create their own arrangements of tunes.

Mark was very patient yet informative. He pointed out areas to improve upon and complemented me where I had been working hard. I was comfortable with his online lesson because he looked me straight in the eyes as though we were face to face. I know he will teach me how to play my mandolin; so looking forward to the next lesson!
Kristen
Mark has been a great teacher for this adult beginner! I take lessons in clawhammer banjo and ukulele with him, and his easy-going nature and skill in identifying ways to improve make it a joyful experience! Highly recommend.

Mr. Sylvester is one of the greatest. He is not just an amazing guitarist, but he is also very kind. He treats people with so much respect. He speaks to me and my mom so nicely. He is very patient. He has a deep knowledge of music and knows how to get the most out of even the least talented people (like me!). He doesn't ever get mad if you make a mistake or forget to bring your music notes. We were so lucky to find Mr. Sylvester.

My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

I highly recommend Mel for fiddle. He had a lot of really good tips and was very willing to find songs that fit the kind of music I wanted to play. Highly recommend!
Ilona
I absolutely love Mel’s lessons and look forward to them every week! I haven’t played seriously in years and have developed some bad bowing habits and difficulty with pitch over time and was close to not playing anymore. After reading the other reviews, I decided to give him a try and am so thankful I did!! My bowing and intonation is improving, he incorporates some music theory appropriate to what we are learning to master the song. I can’t wait to see where I am in 6 months from now! Thank you Mel, my passion for music is returning and am looking forward to my audition in the community orchestra next season!
Hannah
I just started working with Mel and he is awesome! He really listened to my goals and the type of music I am interested in playing and he is planning our lessons based on that. He is very good at explaining things and giving examples. I look forward to our lessons. Highly recommend!

"Lisa is excellent in teaching certain rolls. Most impressive to me was when I wanted to transpose music to tablature. After transposing she wrote it out a different way to fit my style of playing. I needed to be more focused on the left hand rather than my right hand. Her level of patience is great and I feel very comfortable talking to her."

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 …
