About The Class:
Always wanted to learn the old time banjo? Get that banjo out from under the bed and come on down. We will be learning how to play the old time banjo from scratch! We will start with the basics of how to hold and tune the banjo and then move quickly into mastering the frailing strum and left hand techniques. Utilizing by-ear learning, clear, step-by-step instruction, and time for individual coaching, we'll have some fun learning how to wrangle this amazing instrument.
By the end of the class, you should be comfortable with the frailing strum, adept at basic chord changes, know how to do hammer-ons, slides, and pull-offs, and have several old-time tunes in your repertoire. Students ages 12 and up are welcome in this class. Please contact Leela about younger students.
Note: The class will be limited to 12 participants. Pre-registration is required. Questions? Send an EMAIL to Leela.
