Banjo:
If country picking, blue grass, or even pop/rock is a favorite of yours then banjo is a really fun instrument to learn. As with all instruments I teach, we would start with basics and in no time the be picking and strumming away on songs you love. I also incorporate learning the notes, chords, theory, and picking, strumming, techniques and rhythms to become a well rounded musician.

Karen obviously loves the piano & guitar. She’s probably an excellent teacher for those instruments. Why do I say that? That’s what she talked about! She spent half my lesson trying to convince me to learn one of those instruments. Could work on listening skills! Not even sure if she owns a set of bongos herself. Didn’t start teaching me anything until last 10 min & then I had to leave early anyway. So 50 min out of 60 and about 5 I actually learned a few things I could have been practicing for at least 30 min of class. Use her if you want to learn something else other than bongos.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC

Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!

Nick is a wonderful teacher. I came to him because I found that I was not able to translate what is in my head to the music, in my songwriting. I was literally hindered by my lack of knowledge and playing skills. I felt comfortable that Nick understood what I needed, and I like how he met me exactly where I was, providing lessons for me- individualized, personalized, and accessible yet enough to challenge me.

Thank you, Nick.

Amazing instructor. Patient and knowledgeable.
Kara
Nick was a patient and enthusiastic teacher. I was nervous to start music lessons in my late 30s, but he made me feel comfortable and I never felt embarrassed. He taught me the songs I was interested in learning, but snuck in music theory and the basics along the way! Highly recommend

I've been teaching banjo for 4 years helping students develop a love for the instrument and learn more about music along the way. My specialty is Scruggs style picking, but I'm also comfortable teaching clawhammer, reno, or melodic styles and enjoy working on hybrid and progressive styles, too. Within the first few lessons you'll have a solid base of picking and chord changes and even a few simple songs under your belt. Moving on from there I will craft lessons to move you toward a "goal song," making sure to cater your progress to your needs while keeping a focus on good technique. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!

I teach beginner and intermediate 5-string banjo and beginner and intermediate tenor banjo. Let's start with the tenor banjo. That great instrument is an integral element in New Orleans jazz and trad. jazz. I'll have you playing great old jazz standards in no time. Now, let's talk about the 5-string banjo. I will teach you to play 5-string banjo in the traditional three-finger style of the great Earl Scruggs. I'm a longtime pro musician and a longtime teacher. I take a practical approach to learning that emphasizes the fun and sense of togetherness that are such vital elements of playing music. Let's go!

If you want an in depth program which I recommend or if you are a person who wants to learn a few songs that's ok. If you are a newbie there are basics you need: hand position, tuning the banjo and learning a few basic rolls and simple chords. I can teach you Scruggs style, Don Reno style, Bill Keith Melodic Style, Pat Cloud Jazz style or other areas one wants to pursue.
I don't like to teach 1/2 hr lessons as it seems to short a time for a good lesson. If you insist I can do a 1/2hr lesson. I hate to add this, so many people will not practice and they lose interest quickly. I took lessons with Bill Keith every week and he told me if I didn't practice he would know it and cut me back to bi-weekly lessons and if I persisted with no practice he would fire me. He said I don't want to waste my time nor your father's money. It is worth the time to practice even though you can't see the point but suddenly you will reach a plateau where you sound great. By the way I never ...

About Thomas

I'm patient with my students and my main goal is to have them learn something that will give them pleasure in their life and the possibility of performing later on. If a student wants to go far then I can give him or her more in depth chord theory on the banjo and different scales like Pentatonic,

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 …
