Learning Banjo

In this Free Banjo Lesson section are videos and links to free banjo lesson articles on important aspects of playing a banjo. The BanjoTeacher.com Free Banjo Lesson Blog features videos, tips, articles and many other resources to help you learn to play banjo. Using the navigation links on the left find the many free lessons for our visitors, students and customers. I began playing banjo professionally at the age of 17 in 1974 and have always enjoyed teaching and helping others since I began. I was blessed with some natural ability and drive and have always been told I had a keen sense in assisting others. I started BanjoTeacher.com in 2001 by publishing free articles and offering several of my Books and CDs online. As far as I know I was the first one that offered banjo lessons online and I now have over 20 Books and DVDs for learning to play bluegrass banjo. The website and the services we offer have grown considerably over the years but one thing has not changed and that is my inspiration to make the learning process easier and making progress more fun for everyone. Thanks again, Ross Nickerson
