I’ll be spending a few days in Wooster, Ohio this week and am looking for a claw hammer banjo instructor that could get me started. Evening class is a must and I am very much a beginner. Thanks!
Are you normally based in Wooster? I don't know if an instructor in that area, but I'd like to invite you to the Northeast Ohio Old-Time Music Group on Facebook, where you might be able to make a connection. facebook.com/groups/neooldtime
Thanks to the internet causing us ol folks to get better at remote teaching, you don't have to see anyone in person or in your town. I teach now by Skype and Facetime and love getting folks started. (Long since are my days in Cleveland as leader and banjo player of The Boiled Buzzards OT String Band).
Let me know if something like that could work for you.
