Private Banjo Lessons NYC

Book Your Free 30m Intro Lesson Today!

I offer fun & illuminating private banjo lessons to students in New York City at my studio, in your home/office, or virtually through video-conferencing apps like FaceTime, Google Hangouts & Skype.

I’m a professional musician, Berklee grad, and I’ve been working with students for 20+ years, so I know how to get you having fun, and improving as a banjo picker right away.

If you’re not already familiar with my custom designed teaching resources, I have an extensive library of banjo tutorials where you can find out more about my teaching style, and see if private lessons are the next step for you.

If you feel like you’ve hit a plateau as a self-taught player, I’d like to introduce myself, my methods, and my approach to the banjo by offering you a chance to work together risk free for 30m.

Meet your musical personal trainer.

Work one-on-one, 2 to 4 times a month, with me – your musical/personal trainer. As a pro player, I understand your musical journey and I can offer you a clear path to your next series of breakthroughs.

You’re homework is simply to spend at least 30m each day having fun playing your banjo, focusing on the topics we cover in our lessons. I will follow up with you to evaluate your progress in each of our sessions together, and assign new material to move you forward.

Monthly Memberships open for enrollment on the 15th of the current month, to reserve your sessions for the coming month. But new students can setup Intro Lessons anytime. I offer 2 sizes to suit your schedule:

  • $340/mo (4) 60m (Weekly)
  • $170/mo (2) 60m (Bi-Weekly)
