Beginner Packages - Best Banjos to Learn on 

Having started teaching banjo at age 17 in 1975 I have seen a lot of banjos come through the door. I feel I know what beginning banjo players need to get off to a proper start and part of learning that through experience was seeing what did not work for students. Since I started BanjoTeacher.com in 2002 I have not added any banjos to the site that I have not played first hand and felt I could stand behind. The instruction included free with each banjo startup kit is extensive and would be very hard to match anywhere else. All beginner banjos received my comprehensive 52 page Book, Two CDs and a high quality DVD. The over two hour DVD features high quality video explaining everything from holding the banjo, tuning up and even learning parts of the banjo and maintenance tips. The video demonstrates all the lessons showing both hands close-up and I play all the lessons for you at a slow, medium and up to speed tempo. You will learn quite a few songs too.
Thanks, Ross Nickerson

We received the book/CD on Wednesday and the banjo arrived Friday! Adam is playing it, following your book/CD, and LOVING IT! It sounds G R E A T ! ! ! Thank you!

Outstanding, superlative service

Just a quick note to say thanks for the outstanding, superlative service you provided. I called six days ago about a beginner banjo package…you answered all of my questions in terms I, as a beginner, could understand. When I told you I needed the banjo soonest, you called the factory direct and made sure not only that I got it by the date I needed it (I got it today, five days early!)... This kind of service is extraordinary, and extraordinarily rare. I’m just starting out, but you can count on me coming back to banjoteacher.com
