21st Century Banjo Repertoire

$202 ($192 members) · 80 minutes · Weekly for 8 weeks

Learn to play some of your favorite contemporary songs on the banjo! Bluegrass, clawhammer, and two-finger banjoists are all equally welcome. This class is a great chance to improve as a chordal player while also providing ample opportunities for interested students to play lead parts. Each session will focus on the work of a different artist (e.g.: Aoife O’Donovan, Chris Stapleton, Sarah Jarosz, Mumford and Sons, Bon Iver).


Recommended: Bluegrass Banjo 3, Clawhammer 3, or Two-Finger Banjo 3. Students should know the most common movable chord shapes (F, D, and C).
