Bluegrass Lessons Online

Jon Meek, bluegrass performer and instructor in the USA, sends news of the services offered through his website, Bluegrass Lessons Online:

The site has lots of free tablature, music, and videos to facilitate learning, and I offer one-on-one instruction in banjo, guitar, fiddle, mandolin, and dobro using video-conferencing software such as Skype and iChat.

The system makes it possible for teaching to be tailored to the individual student. Samples from an interactive mandolin lesson on YouTube can be viewed on the site; the scale of charges is here.

Jon has been involved with several genres of music (including electric guitar, African drumming, and Irish fiddle): he studied banjo under Tony Trischka at high school; took his BA in music; started the Bozeman Bluegrass Camp at Bozeman, Montana, in 2006; and is a member of the Bridger Creek Boys four-piece bluegrass band, operating in the Rocky Mountain states of the USA.
