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

5-String Banjo – Beginner - Garry McFadden
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).
Due to increased popularity, Garry has 2 classes, running on Monday and Wednesday.
Please double check which class you are attending.
