How to Jam for Clawhammer BANJO
with guest Fiddlers!
When: June THURSDAYS ($30 each or 95 for the 4 part series)
This INTERMEDIATE clawhammer banjo class will meet via Zoom 4 THURSDAYS in JUNE 7:00-8:15pm. The cost of this 4 part series is $95. You may also select individual workshops if you prefer for $30 each.
Learn banjo specific strategies for jamming, variations, and improvisation. Each class will feature a specific strategy taught in 45 minutes of instruction. We will take a simple tune each week to focus on, and expand from there. The class will build from week to week.
The last 30 minutes of each class will involve zooming in a guest fiddler (Brian Slattery, Mia Friedman, Laura Murawski, Becca Wintle &Debra Clifford) who will share their jamming wisdom and experience and play some tunes for you to jam to! I am super excited about this part. Turns out Zoom is a pretty unique opportunity to play with awesome fiddlers up close and personal like without fear.
