Zach has been great to work with! I look forward to every lesson.
Chas E.
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.

Although I have been a professional fretted stringed instrument instructor since 1989, Banjo is my newest instrument. I am genuinely passionate about your success in becoming the best banjo player you choose to be! I like to teach with repetition (wax on wax off) and prefer to present the big picture first so that every obstacle may potentially never be an obstacle for you. I take years of teaching experience and what have been topics of frustration brought to me by students in the past. I try to smooth the road and teach you, so you get the highest yield of success for your money with as few headaches as possible :)

About Greg

Hey musician! I am EXTREMELY excited to help you get to your best potential through lots of flight hours as quickly as you like! I hope you will pick me to help you avoid common setbacks in your progress. I look forward to helping you be your best on your instrument! I play fretted and fretles

I definitely endorse the teaching methods and vast musical knowledge of my instructor, Greg Campbell. As an intermediate level musician, he has taken my knowledge base to a new level. I recommend him to anyone at any level of learning the instrument.

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 …
