Description: This introductory clawhammer banjo class is perfect for first time banjo players! And what better way to encourage social distancing than taking up the banjo (first banjo joke is always free)?! Students will be taught foundational skills in technique, learn their first tunes, and get an introduction into traditional music by learning to play in a fun, and positive environment. But don’t stop there, clawhammer can also be a springboard for creating your own banjo style. Caution: this class could create a temporary obsession with the banjo that family and friends may not understand or tolerate (SEE previous banjo joke).

Prerequisite: None! This class will be starting students from scratch. Students with a little prior experience but with only a tune or two under their belt may join this class as well.
