Guitar instructors (and class topics) will be determined soon. Eventually (possibly next year) we'll offer a full time-guitar track.

“I am really enjoying this CD. Chuck is a very fine banjo player, and there is great fiddle on here too, provided by Dave Forbes, Mike Eberle, and Chuck. I think the best thing about “Banjourneys” is the way the banjo flows through the music, giving the listener a continuity through a very nice variation of musical and cultural tradition: akonting folk tunes, minstrel pieces, old time tunes, even a Rolling Stones song. Throughout, the banjo shines, with great rhythm and syncopation, and the listener can hear the connections, from the banjo’s ancestry through to the present day. “in Banjourneys, I have tried …to weave these various threads into something new and old, here and there.” I think Chuck has managed this beautifully, with the aid of his excellent co-musicians, and it is just so nice to get to meet some of the banjo’s ancestors and have the opportunity to listen to a part of its journey over time, in such a coherent and enjoyable way. ”
