    If you want extra protection here is a link to the banjo flight case pictured below that I use. It works great and is not that expensive, especially compared to any other flight cases I have seen. It's half the price or less. It really works well, it's light, durable and even has room for extra luggage.

    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 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:

    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

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