Found Bluegrass at the "Shamrock" on M St. in Washington, D.C. in 1971. Began teaching kids in 1989 for free and many are still playing today. Privately teaching in the Gainesville and Manassas, VA, area. Philosophy: You've got to play enjoyable stuff to learn. A few selected tunes help build a repertoire of smooth rolls and licks. From then on you use those same rolls and licks to backup others and to learn more tunes. 90% of banjo playing is backup - - get it down! Up the neck is scary but shouldn't be. They are just frets and learning mid- and upper neck should be on the agenda from the "get-go". The longer you wait, the more scary it becomes. California born, Virginia since 1971, Foreign Service, private law practice, attended many banjo camps and seminars, etc.
