Instructor: Ned Luberecki

$349 - $679 TOTAL WORKSHOP COST
($252 tuition + $97-427 lodging & meals package of choice)

This class is for banjo players who are above the beginner stage (you know the basics, ie. rolls, chords, can play songs and at least keep up in a jam on songs that you know). We will focus on getting better at jamming (how to hear chord changes and play solos to songs you don’t already know), playing backup, playing in different keys, creating solos built around the melody and maybe even get into some melodic and single string style playing (if we have time)

Class Prerequisites: Students should already know the basics (Rolls, chords, be able to play songs that they already know in a jam setting). Understanding how to read tablature will be helpful, but not required. 


Supplies: Students should bring their banjo, extra strings, picks, capo, strap, music stand (if they have one) and a willingness to learn and jam! Good attitudes and sense of humor are also encouraged!

Class Level: Intermediate/advance

Steve Martin describes Ned Luberecki’s playing as “an absolutely joyous, riveting, beautifully syncopated example of the beauty of the banjo.” Ned is one of today’s leading players and teachers: a master of the five-string banjo who is adept in both modern and traditional styles. In 2018 he was voted Banjo Player of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA). He has taught hundreds of players at most every major banjo and bluegrass music camp in the world and his Complete Banjo Method, in three volumes from Alfred Music, and video banjo courses from TrueFire.com are garnering rave reviews. Ned tours internationally with the award-winning Becky Buller Band and in Nedski & Mojo, his duo with Sam Bush band guitarist Stephen Mougin. Ned counts as his influences not only the usual banjo heroes with names like Earl, J.D. and Tony but also Eddie Van Halen, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Oscar Peterson and Dave Brubeck. These diverse influences emerge in his unique, sometimes whimsical approach that draws from rock, jazz and television themes (!) as well as bluegrass. Ned’s latest release is the critically acclaimed CD Take Five. Learn more about Ned at nedski.com
