Banjo Clawhammer (5 strings). Concrete method without music theory accessible to everyone!

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
The clawhammer banjo is a playing technique specific to the 5-string banjo, different from that used in bluegrass. We use only the thumb and another finger of the right hand, closed, which strikes the strings. Used mainly in traditional American music, this technique adapts to various other styles. Ideal for accompanying singing or playing melodies, it can be both powerful and delicate.

Its learning is accessible to everyone: without music theory or reading tablature. I teach it in the most natural way possible: by listening and reproducing with a minimum of written support. This is the quickest method to memorize pieces and develop the ability to learn new ones on your own.

The clawhammer technique will be practiced in different tunings and developed in all its aspects in order to make it as versatile as possible: different rhythms, "drop thumb", "hammer on/pull of/slide", ...

About Me

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I like to share my passion for the banjo and the old-time music that made it known. I am also involved in the development of events, jams and festivals that make this tradition better known here in Brussels. My teaching is based on traditional techniques to help you better develop your own use of the instrument by understanding what distinguishes it from another stringed instrument.

Education

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
Holder of a teaching diploma (HEFF), I am mainly guided by my numerous experiences in the US traditional music sector (known as Old-Time). I had the opportunity to give several banjo workshops in Europe (Italy, Netherlands, France, etc.) and to develop my practice with many custodians of the tradition in the United States (Cliffop, Galax Fiddle Convention , ...).

Experience / Qualifications

Translated using Google Translate. Click to view original.
I play banjo in the old-time music project called "Hills of Belgium" (recently programmed at La Roche Bluegrass Festival (FR), Rotterdam Bluegrass Festival (NL), Back to the Farm (I), Gainsborough (UK), ...)

Private Music Lessons - Plucked Strings and Music Theory
Hello, I've been teaching music lessons in Southern California since 2008. Trained primarily as a classical guitarist, I also have extensive experience performing and teaching a wide variety of musical styles, including rock, jazz, and blues. Not only will I teach you how to play, but I will also help you to understand the language of music and how your instrument can speak it. So if you are looking for an encouraging, patient teacher to help you learn a plucked string instrument such as guitar, bass, banjo, ukulele, or mandolin, I'd love to work with you! Over the years, I've taught a multitude of students of plucked strings and music theory; given countless performances as a soloist and with a number of diverse groups as a guitarist, vocalist, keyboardist, and banjoist; and been an active songwriter, composer, and arranger. Several of my works for guitar have been published, and I also wrote the first-ever method book on playing classical music on the 5-string banjo. I have my BA in Music from Cal Poly Pomona, my MM from CSU Los Angeles, and my DMA from Claremont Graduate University. I'm looking forward to working with you to achieve your goals!

5 string banjo class, from Bluegrass to modern Jazz (finger picking)
The 5 string banjo is an amazing instrument. It's driving trademark sound and it's African roots has contributed to many music traditions, including Country, Bluegrass, Blues, Jazz and world music. In my class you'll first learn the basics, how to hold and pick and read tablatures. We'll then go through how to play a tune, accompany other instruments and finally, improvise. During the year I'll teach you basic music theory like rhythm, harmony and a bit of ear training to help you develop your understanding and relationship to the instrument. We'll mainly play Bluegrass Scruggs style at first, then we'll dive into melodic style and sigle string, that will all be useful for playing other kinds of music, like Irish music, Pop, Jazz or Blues. Any requests for a personalised class is welcome. If you'd like inspiration or you want to listen to so fun music, go check out my website !

Our mission is to provide music lessons, educational classes, and life enrichment at an affordable price to anyone interested, regardless of ability, disability, aptitude, or cognitive ability, and to foster connections between students and families for individual and community growth.

We individualize lessons and work with students as a team to reach goals they set for themselves. We encourage students to select additional pieces that they’d like to learn, teaching technique and skill while working on fun songs, too. We simply go at whatever pace is comfortable for you and go step by step together. We often upload audio/video to help during practice and are available between lessons to answer questions.
