How to Jam for Clawhammer BANJO
with guest Fiddlers!
When: January 21 - March 11 2021
This INTERMEDIATEish clawhammer banjo class will be a combo of pre-recorded video lessons, live guided jams with guest fiddlers and live Q/A sessions via zoom. Every other week will include pre-recorded lessons on up the neck chord positions, scales, rhythmic combinations and a tune. Live Sessions will meet via Zoom bi-weekly 4 THURSDAYS 7:00-8:15pm EST. The cost of this 8 part series is $175.
Learn banjo specific strategies for jamming, variations, and improvisation. Each class will feature a specific strategy taught in pre-recorded video lessons. We will take one tune every two weeks to focus on, and expand greatly from there. The class will build from week to week.
The Live sessions will involve zooming in a guest musician who will share their jamming wisdom and experience and play some tunes for you to jam to in a guided way! I am super excited about this part. There will be time for Q&A as well. Turns out Zoom is a pretty unique opportunity to play with awesome players up close and personal like without fear.
All Jam/ Q&A sessions will be recorded and made available to registered class members, so if you have to miss a live session for some reason, or if you just want to practice over and over again, you'll have it. Supplemental materials will also be provided.
