Occupation: Bluegrass Banjo teacher
I own and play on the 1st ( prototype ) Deering Texas Banjo 1941, which I designed, and also the 11th ( most recent ) Deering Texas Banjo ( 1986 ). I keep and practice with a Deering Goodtime Special. ( a great banjo for beginners.)
After Earl Scruggs, my favorite banjo players are Allen Shelton, Billy Faier, Bill Keith, Alan Munde, Larry McNeely, Jack Hicks, Vic Jordan, Bob Black, and Butch Robbins. Of all these,
I have studied Alan Munde's style the closest. It has also been such a thrill to go thru my life
with as many of Bill Keith's recordings as I could collect. What a genius and also, a friend he is.

I have been TEACHING BLUEGRASS BANJO here in HOUSTON, Texas since 1972, and I welcome all levels of students, beginnners to advanced, who may be frustrated by tablature. I created my own learning system, BanjerTab, an alternative form of learning bluegrass banjo. I teach all areas of picking, Scruggs to Melodics, but I SPECIALIZE IN BACK-UP, which is YOUR KEY to MAXIMUM FUN in PARTICIPATING in jam sessions.. Out of town students are also welcome. I have been a Deering banjo dealer since 1984, and am the designor of the Deering - Ullrich Texas banjo.
