Led by Maggie Lind (clawhammer banjo), Patrick Lind (guitar), and Sophie Enloe (fiddle), $200 for 8 weeks, Please email maggiebanjo (at) gmail.com if you have financial need.

If you’ve been playing old-time music on fiddle, clawhammer banjo, or guitar for a while and are ready to build your repertoire while meeting and playing with other people, then this class is for you! We meet for 8 weeks and learn 6 traditional tunes and songs. We start each lesson in a large group and the instructors play the tune we will work on that evening. Then, we slow it down and all sing the melody together to learn it by ear. We separate into different classrooms for group lessons on each instrument. Finally, we come back together and play the tune all together. On the fourth meeting, we work specifically on reviewing the first three tunes and harmony singing. For the final class meeting, we will meet early for a big community dinner (COVID permitting) and will play all the tunes we have learned during the session. In addition to the class meetings, enrolled students will receive access to source recordings and demonstration videos for each of the tunes we teach.

COVID Policy:
We ask that you show proof of vaccination at the first class meeting and that you are current on your boosters to attend class. We will not require masking, but it is encouraged and welcomed if you feel compromised in any way. Should someone in class have a positive test within three days of class meeting we will notify everyone. We will follow CDC guidelines and will require masking or pivot to Zoom classes should we be required to do so.
