How to Jam for Clawhammer BANJO
with guest Fiddlers!
When: January THURSDAYS
Level: Intermediate/ Advanced
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. Live Sessions will meet via Zoom 4 THURSDAYS in January 7:00-8:00pm. The cost of this 4 part series is $108. 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 pre-recorded video lessons. We will take a simple tune each week to focus on, and expand from there. The class will build from week to week.
The Live sessions each week will involve zooming in a guest fiddler 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 fiddlers 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.
