Play the Banjo  

What's more fun than listening to the banjo? Playing the banjo! You will learn the secrets behind the two most popular styles of 5-string banjo playing: Bluegrass, or three-finger style picking; and Old-Time clawhammer or frailing style. You will be given the opportunity to focus on one style or the other, or may choose to learn both. We will look at the amazing history of "America's instrument" through demonstrations and recordings. Please bring a 5-string banjo, clip-on tuner, music stand, recording device (phone is acceptable) and a notebook to class. Required textbooks: Banjo for Beginners: An Easy Beginning Method by Tony Trischka, and Clawhammer Banjo Primer Book with Video and Audio Access by Bradley Laird are both available online. Sets of fingerpicks will be available in class for a $5 fee.
