I am a multi-instrumentalist with a wide range of musical interests and have been teaching since 1999. I have a degree in Music from Brigham Young University with a focus on Voice and Classical guitar. I became interested in clawhammer banjo while teaching guitar at the Old Town School of Folk Music in Chicago in the late nineties. It is a ton of fun to play and I soon got hooked. As the drummer for the pop-indie band Silent Kids and co-founder of the Americana group Georgia Fireflies, I have a unique perspective on clawhammer and I use this technique to play/teach Old Time and other musical styles as well.
I teach in-person clawhammer banjo, mandolin, guitar and piano lessons from my home studio in the Ormewood/Grant Park area in Atlanta, GA on Wednesdays only. Clawhammer banjo, mandolin and guitar lessons are available via Skype or Zoom Tuesdays and Fridays.
