BLUEGRASS BANJO TEACHER
I teach BLUEGRASS BANJO lessons. I have been playing for 35 years and have played in a few local bands through the years. The specific styles of Banjo that I teach are Scruggs and Melodic 3-Finger picking. I can teach Beginner and Intermediate level players. If you are just starting out and do not even have a Banjo yet I can advise you on what kind of Banjo would be best for you for the amount of money that you would want to spend on one for starting out and also advise you on what items you will need. If you are a Beginner I can start you on some basic songs that will be easy to learn and show basic skills. If you are an Intermediate level player I can teach you to improve the songs you already know and teach you how to play in a band or how to jam in a jam session.
I teach from my home. I live in the Murray area of Salt Lake City. My house is near the Smith's Food King on 4500 South and 700 East. My address is: 786 Rosemore Ct. (786 East 4370 South). My phone # is: 801-261-1129. I charge $25.00 for a one hour lesson. I can teach on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis, whatever works best for your schedule. I am flexible on the hours that I can teach and I am willing to teach on weekends as well.
