My son has been playing banjo for about 1.5 years in the Northeast. We came down to Tennessee in 2019 for a week to visit family and wanted to continue my son's banjo lessons while we were away from home, so I set up a lesson with Robert. He far and away exceeded our expectations. He's extremely kind, patient, encouraging, knowledgeable, talented, and an excellent teacher. When we visited again this summer (2020) we made sure to carve out time for my son to have lessons with Robert again and it was exactly as awesome as we remembered. My son made gains in his playing in the three weeks in Tennessee under Robert's teaching that he hadn't been able to do in several months at home. Highly recommend!

I've been picking the 5 string banjo for almost 30 years and have a Bachelor of Music Composition degree. I teach all skill levels. Most teachers focus on memorization instead of teaching to understand what you're truly playing. With me, you won't open a book of banjo tunes and just work on memorizing them. This doesn't teach how to master the banjo. I'll teach you all the songs you love, but not someone else's rendition of them. You will make them your own. I teach how to master your banjo by knowing and understanding your fretboard inside and out. I teach full time, 7 days a week. I don't require any commitment. For questions or to schedule a lesson call or text anytime at 1(475)209-6760. Happy pickin!
