    About MeContact Me
    My folks started me on the 5 string banjo at age 8 and I've been playing for almost 30 years. I grew up playing in a family band, in my early 20's I played in a semi-pro Newgrass band called Southern Transfer. I currently play a custom electric banjo in a alt-country band called Chicken Wire.

    My Teaching Background
    Although I'm brand new to teaching, the bluegrass 5 string banjo has been a life long passionate study of mine. I originally started clawhammer lessons at age 8, but my parents switched me to bluegrass after a year. I continued with private lessons until I was 18 years old, when I started to self teach more advance techniques and the guitar.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    Because I'm a novice teacher, my rates are a little less than some of the more experienced teachers. I only teach beginner students at this time. We will start with basic chords, rolls, and licks. I like to teach a new song with most lessons as well as explaining the theory involved with each song. I strive to make it fun and laid back!

    Rates And Availability
    I have a private music studio in Buckley, WA for lessons, right off HWY 410. Saturdays and Sundays are available. Week days might be workable, depending on my schedule. Lessons are $25 per 45 minute.
