Students in this class will be taking an advance look at Old Time Banjo Technique. This class will mainly be focused on clawhammer style playing. Students will focus on improving right hand accuracy, and discovering new pathways through familiar tunes with their left hand. Riley's approach to this class is to help students leave with a good toolkit to improve every tune they already know, and will learn in the future. 

Required Class Materials: Please bring a fully-functional fretted clawhammer banjo, a capo, and a recording device (as all material will be taught by ear).

Class Level: Intermediate, Advanced

Riley Baugus represents the best of old time American banjo and song. His powerful singing voice and his expert musicianship place him squarely in the next generation of the quality American roots tradition.

Riley first came to music through his family. His father had left his roots in the mountains of North Carolina in the search for work, settling near Winston-Salem and bringing with him a love of old time music and a record collection that included, amongst others, the works of fellow North Carolinian Doc Watson, which touched the young Riley on a molecular level.

His family’s attendance at Regular Baptist church gave him early exposure to the unaccompanied singing that is a time-honored tradition for ballad singers throughout the Appalachians. Starting on the fiddle, Riley quickly moved on to the banjo, building his first instrument from scrap wood with his father.
