About one-to-one banjo lessons

Dick provides 5-String Banjo music lessons to adults of all levels of experience and expertise. Private banjo lessons are an hour and available to book in Walthamstow on Wednesdays between 10am and 6.30pm and Tooting on Tuesdays between 4.30 and 6.30pm .

For beginners and novices

Dick has been teaching 5-String Banjo for over 20 years and has a great deal of experience with getting beginners and novices off the ground. His one-to-one teaching method has proved to be extremely successful with new students. With a "laid-back", but methodical approach, his pupils find that they are making "Banjo sounds" within a short few weeks of taking up the instrument.

For intermediate and more experienced banjo players

Dick also teaches intermediate and higher levels, steering players who may have studied from books, internet or ear to focus on being disciplined with respect to rhythm, accuracy and clarity of tone. Learning any instrument is never easy but enjoyment and fun are paramount whilst studying.
