Always wanted to learn the old time banjo? Get that banjo out from under the bed and come on down. We will be learning how to play the old time banjo from scratch! We will start with the basics of how to hold and tune the banjo and then move quickly into mastering the frailing strum and left hand techniques. Utilizing by-ear learning, clear, step-by-step instruction, and time for individual coaching, we'll have some fun learning how to wrangle this amazing instrument.By the end of the class, you should be comfortable with the frailing strum, adept at basic chord changes, know how to do hammer-ons, slides, and pull-offs, and even have a few tunes in your repertoire! The class will meet virtually via Zoom and each session will be recorded. If the live class time doesn't work for you, you can still sign up to receive the handouts, audio files, and the video recording of the full class. Students ages 12 and up are welcome in this class. Please contact Leela about younger students.
