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.

All Level of Students are Welcome
The average skill and experience level for students is between six months and three years experience. This is a workshop for students who want to improve. Resist thinking you are not good enough or be intimidated. If you do, you could miss out on this valuable opportunity to improve. Everyone in the class will be there to learn and be supportive of each other. What ends up happening to all students is they realize they are just like everyone else in the learning process. That becomes a great source of comfort and encouragement in of itself. If you have concerns on either end of the skill perspective, please call Ross at 1-866-322-6567.

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

Thanks, Ross Nickerson

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

  • Right and Left Hand Techniques
  • Backup Playing
  • Practice Habits and Priorities
  • Mixing Styles
  • Up the Neck Work
  • Jamming with Others
  • Rhythm and Timing
  • Playing in Different Keys and Tunings
  • Playing by Ear and Learning to Play Without Tablature


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
