Join Emily Elam for a fun and informative beginner’s banjo class on the frailing or clawhammer technique. This class is for students who have no experience on the banjo.
You will need a working instrument and a recording device (your smart phone will do). If you don’t own a banjo, a limited number will be available to borrow. Just let us know so we can reserve a banjo for you.
After learning the basics of holding your banjo, we will learn to play essential chords and a simple melody using the “clawhammer” technique. Tab and recordings will be provided for all tunes taught. We will also discuss efficient practice strategies and techniques for learning new tunes on your own.
By the end of the workshop, you will have the tools you need to continue learning clawhammer banjo.
Registration for the 2 day workshop is only $89 or $79 for Music Roots students.
