Old-Time Fiddle & Clawhammer Banjo Lessons

Skype or in Mountain View, AR

The only thing I love more than playing old-time music is getting to share it.  While I’ve won awards competing and performing, my favorite way to share this music has always been through teaching.  I’ve studied under some of the best instructors in the old-time world and continually add their methods to my own.  In addition to formal instruction I’ve spent many hours learning tunes on back porches, sidewalks, and inn rooms, bringing new perspectives and hundreds of tunes into what I can share.

Over the last ten years, I’ve used these experiences while teaching both private lessons and large groups, in-person and via FaceTime or Skype. Whether you’ve just retired and are finally pursuing your passion or have a child who’s just starting to find theirs, I hope you’ll say hello and stick around to learn some old-time music!
