Private Banjo Lessons NYC

Fun & illuminating private banjo lessons are offered to adult banjo students of all levels!

Private lessons take place at my professionally equipped music studio in Park Slope, in your home/office, or virtually through video-conferencing apps like FaceTime, Google Hangouts & Skype.

I’m a performer, songwriter, trained Berklee grad, and I’ve been working with private banjo students for over 20 years, so I know how to get you started, help you advance, and ultimately achieve your goals on the banjo.

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

Whether you’re just starting out as a beginner, or you’ve been playing your whole life but feel like you’ve hit a plateau, I can offer you a fun and insightful next step. I’d like to introduce myself, my methods, and my approach to the banjo by offering you a 30m introductory lesson at my studio, where we can discuss your goals & schedule, and my studio policies.
