Itchin’ for some finger pickin’? Sign up for Banjo Lessons at Centre Music House where you can learn everything about the banjo from basic rolls and licks to fast-picking bluegrass and solos.

The Banjo stands as an iconic instrument in any bluegrass or folk arrangement. Originally an African instrument, the modern Banjo comes in the 4-string, 5-string, or 6-string variety. The Banjo is hot again thanks to contemporary folk and bluegrass bands like The Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons.

Our Banjo teachers offer students a step-by-step approach to learning how to play the banjo.

Beginning Students will…

  • How to read music
  • Basic music theory
  • Bluegrass and Melodic styles
  • How to play rolls and licks

As you progress through your banjo lessons you and your teacher will explore advanced licks, improvisation, and unique styles. You may also bring in specific songs you would like to learn and your teacher will help you transcribe the music so you can learn it at your own pace.

What students and parents are saying about lessons at Centre Music House:

"My daughter Emma looks forward to her weekly piano lesson with Lauren, it’s one of the highlights of her week. Lauren is doing a great job engaging Emma and making piano fun."

- Bethany L. (Parent)


"Don't be deceived by its small size, they have what you need in music, instruments, mics, service, strings, lessons, etc. I drove by this place so many times in the past 3 years, and wish I had taken the time to visit earlier instead of driving to Newton or getting things online."

- MaryAnne T. (Student)

"Great piano lessons for our 5 year old daughter. Erin is excellent and teaches all ages and is great with children. We have been so lucky to have lessons during a time where we need something to look forward to and offer some structure for little ones to express themselves and grow."

- Shelly A. (Parent)
