Old Town School of Folk Music's Kids' Banjo Program is part of our joyful learning community for young folks! This program is a thoughtul and accessible approach to learning banjo - crafted and led by banjo pickin' songwriter and teaching musician, Jonas Friddle.
An approach of learning tunes by ear while coordinating right hand technique with left hand tone, young banjo players learn to play a thoughtfully planned repertoire of banjo and fiddle tunes from the Americana and Old Time tradition. Whether it's a first or second instrument, learning the banjo is an exciting challenge for an emerging young musician.
Our private lessons like our group classes run in 8-week sessions, however, you can begin private lessons during any week in the session. Please call our customer service folks at 773.728.6000 to register as private lesson availability is based upon individual teacher schedules.
Lessons are scheduled weekly, for 30, 45 or 60 minutes, and are available every day of the week at our Lincoln Square and Lincoln Park locations. Our experienced and professional faculty will work with you to develop an individualized program that helps you achieve your musical goals.
Stop in at either location or call the front desk at 773.728.6000 to register.
