Be a Banjo Star: Continuing Clawhammer Banjo
June 29-July 5, 2008
Instructor: Mary Z. Cox
Tuition: $478.00
Expand your repertoire of banjo tunes while improving your technique and tone. We'll explore tunings beyond basic G, begin drop thumbing, play together as a class to steady right-hand rhythms, and practice simple chordal back-up. We may also sing and play banjo at the same time on a tune or two. Students must be able to play a few tunes slowly and tune their own banjos. It is also desirable to have recently attended a beginning camp or class to have a solid foundation of skills.

Level 2: Continuing (can play a few tunes slowly) or Level 3: Intermediate (can play 10 or more tunes, not quite up to tempo)
