Choose from a wide selection of beginner banjos for learning bluegrass 5-string banjo. We have beginner banjos priced for a budget and all our banjo kits include comprehensive beginner banjo lessons online and hard copy Book, DVD and CD lessons.
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 and did not work for students. Since I started BanjoTeacher.com in 2002 I have not added any beginner banjos to the site that I have not played first hand and felt I could stand behind. My banjo instruction included free with each banjo startup kit is extensive and would be very hard to match anywhere else. All beginner banjos receive my comprehensive 52 page Book, Two CDs and a high quality DVD. On my high quality studio video DVD I explain 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 every lesson at a slow, medium and up to speed tempo. You will learn quite a few songs too.
Thanks, Ross Nickerson

What our customers say
"....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"
