My guitar workshops are designed to help players of beginning, intermediate, or advanced levels. Individuals can learn to do melody lines like Maybelle Carter, add back-up and fill-in licks like Doc Watson, flatpick fiddle tunes like Norman Blake, learn the intricate cross-picking style of George Shuffler or take breaks in the jazzy bluegrass style of Tony Rice. Rhythm guitar styles including bass runs and rhythmic techniques can also be incorporated into any workshop. My workshops can be customized to suit the needs and interests of your particular group.
Also available are beginning through intermediate mandolin and bass classes as well as a beginning bluegrass banjo class which introduces the three main types of rolls and a tune such as “Cripple Creek”.
Because my teaching style is a more personalized hands-on approach, I like to have no more than twenty participants for each class.
