Banjo Instruction 

Throughout my career I've always enjoyed sharing my knowledge and helping others to learn to play the banjo. Through years of experience teaching privately and traveling the world to hold group workshops i've gained many unique insights into the common obstacles facing banjo students today. I've listened to my students, seen the challenges they face, understand what students are craving for and always delivers my practical, focused instruction in a personable and easy to follow manner. I've written the top selling banjo book "The Banjo Encyclopedia",  “Bluegrass Banjo from A to Z” as well as many other books, cd's and dvd's designed to help you, the banjo student, save time and learn the fun of playing 5-string banjo easier.

Many of the books include backup band play along tracks for better practice routines and many other practical time saving tips on learning to play banjo.

    Ross, Your lessons and teaching methods are the best! I've purchased a lot of books and dvd's from other artists, but find your way to be the best. I flew thru your Beginning 5 string Banjo and can play all songs at about 85 bpm on my metronome. Never played a banjo before getting your book. You make it fun. The Banjo Song Book looks great and can't wait to get goin on that.
    BTW - got your new CD and it's awesome!

    Thanks , Doug



    "......Ross, Thank you, thank you, thank you. I learned more from your book and tapes in an hour, than in nine months with other sources. I am 64 and was beginning to doubt that I could ever learn to play the banjo. Now I believe I can do this! You are my new banjo hero, next to Kermit of course! Thanks again. Mallorie"

    Comments on Ross Nickerson's Banjo Encyclopedia, "Bluegrass Banjo from A to Z"

    "….I think that what you have created is the new gold standard for banjo instruction. It is an absolutely beautiful, beautifully written book, which I know will now be the foundation of my lifetime banjo study."

    "I got The Banjo Encyclopedia Friday and have read it cover to cover. Very well done. ...I did go to the Table of Contents and, in my opinion as a former HS teacher and college lecturer for 25 years - Ross has put together something that I would say is the first book/CD that anyone who knows they want to learn 5 string should have."

    "......bought your Banjo Encyclopedia about 6 weeks ago, I have put all my other books on ice, yours is THE one. It covers everything I will possibly want to know for the next 20 years or so. It will in my opinion become the seminal book on banjo."
