Clawhammer Banjo II -- 7-Week January-February Class with Leela Grace
Mondays, 5:30-6:25pm, January 14-February 25, 2019.
(Scroll down to register!)
This class is designed for banjo players who have completed Leela's Beginning Clawhammer Banjo class or for players who have gotten started on basic clawhammer banjo skills. For this class, we will assume that you know how to tune your banjo, that you are somewhat comfortable with the frailing/clawhammer strum, that you are familiar with slides, pull-offs, and hammer-ons, and that you know at least a few tunes and chords in the G tuning. From there we will venture further into the wonderful world of the old time banjo! This will STILL BE A CLASS FOR BEGINNERS, NOT ADVANCED PLAYERS. The focus will be on expanding your repertoire and continuing to build your basic clawhammer banjo skills. You will be learning a selection of old time tunes in the open G tuning, Modal, and Double C tunings. You will also be introduced to the concept of using a capo to play in a variety of keys.
Here’s what one of Leela’s banjo students said about her teaching:
"After muddling through years of instruction books and tabs, Leela's clear instruction helped me to hear the music in a way that elevated my banjo playing to a new level. Her creative arrangements of classic tunes have inspired me as I work to develop my own style."
Note: The class will be limited to 12 participants. Pre-registration is required. Questions? Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
