Online Banjo, Guitar, and Songwriting Lessons

Here at Jody Hughes Music we offer Online banjo, guitar, theory, and songwriting lessons via SKYPE, Google Hangouts, or Facetime. We’ve offered these lessons for over seven years with great success.  I’ve had students in Canada/Thailand/Australia/U.K/U.S.A.  I even have students that live less than an hour away from me, they simply prefer the online lessons to the commute.

Equipment required:

  • webcam
  • paypal account
  • SKYPE, Google Hangouts or Facetime account
  • High-Speed internet.

Perhaps you don’t have an instructor nearby, or perhaps your local instructor is more of a guitar player who dabbles in banjo and you need a better quality of instruction? In that case, online lessons are PERFECT for you.

I teach the following:

Banjo-Scruggs/Bluegrass, Melodic-Style, Single-String, Beginning to Advanced

Guitar-Solo Guitar Arranging, Jazz Guitar (from swing to bebop), Chord-Melody, Flatpick Bluegrass Material, Fiddle Tunes.

Songwriting-I teach songwriters how to use harmonies/arranging techniques to make their songs even more interesting.  We also work on rhythms, dynamics, etc. For instrumentalists, I show you ways to compose your own instrumentals, drawing from a wide variety of music.

Theory-I studied five years with a jazz pianist so I have an extensive background in functional and non-functional harmony.  Chord theory, Scales, Modes, Advanced Rhythmic Devices, Sight-Reading, Basic Sight-Singing, etc.
