Course Description

This class is for absolute beginners. Learn the essentials needed to begin playing the banjo. The class will give you a basic introduction to the instrument and enable you to begin playing songs. You’ll be introduced to chords, right hand techniques, and tuning in a fun, laid-back and supportive environment. We can set you on your path to bluegrass or clawhammer playing through one of our repertoire classes and ensembles.
