Banjo - Beginners

A fun course which will get you playing tunes and vocal accompaniments on a 4 or 5 string instrument. Bring your banjo.


Banjo - Beginners will set you up well to develop into any of the several existing specialist banjo styles - or your own new original style!  This course uses tablature notation and Chicago tuning. 

By the end of the course, you’ll be able to:  
• Play a range of solo instrumental tunes, progressively building up your chord knowledge
• Demonstrate a number of plucking techniques
• Accompany other musicians at a basic level
• Perform with competence and confidence in front of other people
• Enjoy the satisfying feeling of becoming a real musician 

Bring your own banjo (and music stand, if you have one).
