More About Me

John specializes in historical banjo styles, primarily the classic fingerstyle (a type of old-time three finger picking) and stroke style. These were the precursors to later 20th century banjo playing including various old-time and bluegrass techniques, and learning them provides an excellent technical and musical foundation for exploring these later styles. Of course, they are great fun to focus on for their own sake and one could spend a lifetime studying them. In addition to these styles, John teaches practical music theory and notation reading, although if a student desires to learn by ear or TAB they will be accommodated. John strives to provide students with a flexible approach to technique that can be tailored to an individual's strengths and preferences.
