More About Me

I started playing 5 string banjo in 1979, and have taught on and off since 1989. I use a song based approach for students to incrementally increase fundamental skills to play the type of banjo style/material that a student desires to master.



I encourage the use of computer learning aids that slow down recordings of banjo breaks and back up so you can play them accurately at a slow speed, then as you slowly speed up, tone, precision, and timing accuracy are not compromised. I will teach you how to use programs such as "The Amazing Slow Downer", and "Band in a Box" so your practice time is always moving you towards a quality sound, and ready to play with others!







Since 1984, my day job has been teaching 18 to 22 year old severely handicapped students independent living and job skills in the public school system. I am a banjo teacher first, banjo performer second. I can teach ANYONE, regardless of ability, how to be a great sounding banjo player!
