Richard Dodge started playing the guitar in 1988 and moved on to 5 string banjo in later years. His teaching implements Scruggs style(3 finger) banjo picking for traditional bluegrass music in addition to other mainstream genres. Lessons are designed to bring beginners to a practical level using a crawl, walk, and run approach. Emphasis is also placed on equipment selection and set-up to ensure consistency.
All comers are welcome as previous musical experience is not required. Lesson plans can also be modified depending on your objective and other life constraints. See you soon!
