The five-string banjo is a defining instrument in bluegrass and old time music. The sound of the banjo has shaped American music since its inception and is incredibly versatile. In the modern era, however, banjo music is often pigeonholed into one or both of these genres. In this workshop, we’ll learn how to play different styles of music, giving you the opportunity to explore a wider range of sounds on the banjo. We’ll learn ways to approach jazz, classical, pop and other styles to further enrich your playing. Attendees of this workshop should already have knowledge and experience beyond the beginner level. As such, it is geared towards the intermediate and advanced player.
