What is it that you want to learn? What are your goals? What is in your way?
That’s what I’m interested in as a teacher. My objective is to help set things up so that you can learn what you want to learn. We collaborate in finding a process that leads to you achieving your goals.
I teach three-finger (bluegrass) technique.
People tend to come wanting to play bluegrass, and later on they often find themselves more variety. I particularly enjoy branching out into other styles like metal, jazz, folk and world music.
I enjoy showing people how to apply standard banjo techniques to the styles they love. Learning the rules is important, and breaking the rules is a lot of fun!
Lessons are available online, at my studio in Timaru, New Zealand, and occasionally in Sydney, Australia
