More About Me

Tenor banjo: Hillbilly music and bluegrass/gospel tunes using CGDA tuning. I use Zoom for live online lessons. We'll learn chords,strums,tunes,and how to take care of your tenor banjo.

5 string banjo: I teach two finger style as it's easier for most people than the 3 finger. You'll be learning bluegrass/gospel tunes,chords,etc. I also teach beginning bluegrass style for the more adventuresome.

Pay a month in advance (4 lessons,one a week) and I'll give a discount. I accept Paypal.

For those on a budget,I have free online lessons with TAB on my Patreon page. Visit

Currently accepting students between the ages of 18-49. (this is the age range I work best with.

Only rules I have for privately teaching online students are: you must be willing to learn songs you've never heard before,know how to print a PDF,and for my live online students, stick to the tutorial I work with (Bluegrass banjo for the complete Ignoramous) No bouncing around from one book to another,and then another. Learned my lesson the hard way on that.

If you've had not so positive encounters with other teachers,I can help you learn to play in a nurturing,comfortable atmosphere. I remember what it's like to be starting out on, guitar,mandolin,and fiddle!

One of my gifts is teaching you how to unblock your creative self and keep your inner critic at bay.

Firm believer in teaching positive mindedness while teaching the instrument. Attitude is everything! Do email me with any questions you may have.


I've been a student of Sherrie for around 7 months and like her a lot. She is a very friendly and fun teacher! She likes to introduce creativity even at the most beginner of levels which I found to be very helpful when learning. She also puts in extra effort outside the normal lesson time. Really an overall good teacher and person! - eggman95
