I was the banjo teacher for the 2018 workshop at the Foggy Mountain festival in Kinglake. Also, I co-hosted a jamming workshop at the 2017 Mountaingrass festival in Harrietville, with multiple workshops teaching jamming skills culminating in a performance on stage.
If you want to learn to pick the 5-string banjo, you're in the right place! Whether you just want to roll along to "Country Roads", or get into the driving bluegrass banjo of Flatt & Scruggs, I can help you out. Having once been on that beginner's road myself, I am now playing gigs and have taught the banjo workshop at this year's Kinglake bluegrass festival.
I offer bluegrass banjo lessons to all ages, beginner to advanced. The aspects of banjo I teach include basic technique and learning to play by ear, all the way to advanced backup and improvisation.
If you're interested in a trial lesson, with banjo provided, send me a message here to arrange a time which suits.
