More About Me

I've been playing the banjo since the late 60's and playing professionally since 1970. For many years I've enjoyed teaching and helping people express themselves musically. I have taught both bluegrass and clawhammer style banjo. My students have ranged from beginners to professionals who wish to expand their playing into other styles.

I am available most evenings, please feel free to contact me at any time.


I highly recommend Don as a teachier based on the time I spent with him as a ch student. Don is real easy to work with, patient and will work with you so you get what you want to learn out of the time you spend together. Don has been a great help and I plan on working with him in the future. - Tom Paglia

Don is adept at both Oldtime and Bluegrass styles and has decades of professional playing and teaching experience. He teaches from that experience, which is invaluable. You also wont find a nicer guy or one who enjoys playing the banjo more than he does. That infectious love of music and his skills and experience make for a great combination in a teacher! - Banjophobic

Don is an amazing musician and even better person. His clawhammer skills will touch anyone that takes time to listen. His knowledge and experience in the world of bluegrass speaks for itself. I have always loved bluegrass and the banjo, but Don is the reason I now love the clawhammer sound. Another one of the greats listed here on the BHO. - dgill
