Hello Fellow Banjo Enthusiasts!  Have you ever found yourself frustrated with your playing, ready to ascend to the next level but don’t know what to do next? Would you like to have a great time jamming with a group of like-minded musicians who enjoy learning as much as you do? Welcome to the Clawhammer Banjo Study Group!
In this Study Group we’ll be diving into the common questions that arise for beginning to intermediate banjoists. My mission with this group is simple: to equip you with the fundamental components of healthy technique, practical music theory, building repertoire, and unlocking practice tips that propel you forward – all to enhance your ability to express yourself through the banjo. 
Each week, we’ll explore a new concept, and together, we’ll workshop in a supportive class setting. Following each class, you’ll receive follow-up materials that will be your companions throughout the week, ensuring that your learning doesn’t end when the class does. By the end you’ll be armed with the tools and knowledge that will take your playing to new heights!
