Bio
Hello, my name is Ian Craft i'm a musician living in nashville and I play in a few different bands my love is for ole time and bluegrass music. I play the fiddle, mandolin, banjo, guitar, and drums. I am currently teaching on all of these instruments and am looking to pickup a few more students. I love to teach and work with folks of all ages and talent levels i'm a very patient teacher who loves to encourage my students and go at the pace that the student is ready for, I never like to rush, learning is a slow steady process and takes time and patience. I look forward to any new students and hope this finds you all well!
