Description: This class is a continuation of Banjo – Beginner I.  Students will learn new tunes, a little harder than the first, and will learn some new, advancing, techniques such as hammer-ons, pull-offs, and slides. Students will continue developing their group playing skills through focusing on  listening for chord changes, learning to “kick-off” a tune, and a couple simple ending licks to end. A few times throughout the semester, this class will join other beginner classes to hone group playing skills such as chopping and playing with accompaniment.

Prerequisite: Banjo – Beginner I or equivalent. Equivalent includes being able to play a few simple tunes such as Boil ’em Cabbage Down and Cripple Creek

What students will need:

  • Functional banjo (bridge and all 5 strings intact, tuners in working order)
  • Picks (1 thumb pick and two finger picks)
  • Tuner
  • Notebook & pencil
  • Recording device optional

Next Level: Banjo – Intermediate I

If paying in full doesn’t work for your budget, you can pay in monthly installments.  Pay for your first month below, and we’ll send an invoice for the remaining payments.
