Message from Ross

Hi, I'm Ross Nickerson,
The Banjo Cruise workshops are very important to me. Those of you who know me or is familiar with my work know the passion I feel to help others maximize and improve their experience playing the 5-string banjo. Looking through BanjoTeacher.com will give you an idea of how hard I have worked and the many services I have for students who want to progress and move forward.

The Banjo Cruise Workshop is held in a large private conference room that is essentially sound proof and separate from all other passengers. The workshop takes place during the days we are at sea so you can visit all ports and still have plenty of time for fun with your spouse, family or friends while on the cruise. The class sizes are small ensuring that each student receives the assistance and encouragement they need. The learning experience I offer is intended to be challenging, but always with your best interests at heart. I know no other way but to offer a supportive, helpful environment for my students.

If you have any questions about the Banjo Cruise Workshop call me on my direct line at 1-866-322-6567

If you call, I would enjoy describing the and answering any questions about the on board banjo classes and the fun we are going to have doing it! 1-866-322-6567

Thanks, Ross Nickerson

Here are just some of the topics covered in the workshops:

  • Practice Habits and Priorities
  • Mixing Styles
  • Up the Neck Work
  • Jamming with Others
  • Rhythm and Timing
  • Playing in Different Keys and Tunings

As you can see by the curriculum description, this workshop will hit the core of the most important issues facing you. It will key on the most important areas of study needed to overcome as you tackle the obstacles that are inherent and in so many ways unique in learning the five string banjo.

Please give me a call so I can describe some of the activities we'll be taking part in and what we'll explore in classes.

Thanks, Ross Nickerson 866-322-6567
