Lessons: I teach private lessons for adults on 5-string banjo and guitar*
  • Lessons are scheduled weekly at my home in Smithfield, NC, unless other arrangements are made in advance. Please note that I actively discourage fortnightly lessons, as I have found that long intervals between lessons inhibit motivation.
  • My payment and cancellation policies are spelled out in this document, also linked below.
  • *Please note that my guitar instruction is limited to acoustic instruments only, and only for bluegrass, old-time, and folk-singing. I do not play or teach popular music of any sort, or blues that are best suited to electric instruments.
    My payment and other policies can be viewed with this document

    If you're really interested, or just have a lot of time to kill, I have a brief, musical bio available.

  • Highly recommended private guitar and bass instruction, including jazz and rock, is available in Wendell from Jimmy Collins

  • For instruction in mandolin, fiddle, dobro, and the like, we recommend Johansson's Acoustic Music Studio, Inc. in Cary, NC.
