 GFW Playing Together – Monday Slow Session or Wednesday Warm Up

 CDBAND 18Apr2010 0068

TENOR Banjo - with Collette Campbell & Celine Donoghue

WHEN: MONDAY 7.30pm - 9.30pm     CLASSROOM: Monday Rooms


Originally we had a single Tenor Banjo class for both new Banjo players and people who wanted to improve their exisiting skills.

When we have sufficient numbers we run 2 classes, which helps match skills to learning and to keep a reasonable student to tutor ratio.

Collette Campbell will teach beginners and Celine Donoghue the improvers.

Garry McFadden

 5-String Banjo - Beginner - with Garry McFadden

WHEN: Wednesday 7.30pm - 9.30pm     CLASSROOM:  Wednesday Rooms


This class will be aimed at BEGINNER level 5-string banjo.  As the 5-string banjo is primarily an American instrument, Garry will teach "Scruggs" (‘Duelling Banjos’ /‘Foggy Mountain Breakdown) style. Though the class is aimed at Beginner level, the class will look at melodic "Keith" style, single-string "Reno" style and a 5-string approach to Celtic traditional tunes.  

The class will be fun and informative. (Guitarists may find banjo easy to adapt to - there are some similarities between the instruments).
