Online Banjo Lessons

Here at Jody Hughes Music we offer Online banjo, guitar, theory, and songwriting lessons via SKYPE or Zoom. We’ve offered these lessons for over 7 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 that simply prefer the online lessons to the commute.

Equipment required:

  • webcam
  • paypal account
  • SKYPE or Zoom 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 5 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.
