TENOR Banjo - 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.

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

WHEN: Monday and Wednesday 7.30pm - 9.30pm     CLASSROOM:  Monday Wednesday

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.
