Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: I have been teaching clawhammer banjo for about 4 years now and have had many successful students. I really enjoy helping other people learn a skill that can be so rewarding and fun! I offer discounts to BIPOC, women, and anyone who is a part of the LGBTQIA+ community. Please ask about a discount if you are in any of those groups! Please note: I am located in Asheville, NC during the school year, and Richmond, VA during the summer. Apparently thumbtack keeps telling people I'm local to them when I'm not. Also: I only teach clawhammer banjo. I do not play or teach bluegrass.

My banjo lessons with Rachel have been fantastic! She’s patient with me as a brand new beginner and is great with helping me figure out adaptations for some learning differences. She’s easygoing and friendly and I’m enjoying my lessons tremendously! Highly recommend Rachel!
