About "No Picker Left Behind" Live Sessions

“I’m very surprised…I really pick up the tunes way quicker with this format.” 

Gary M., NPLB attendee

I lose sleep over the idea of someone whose dream is to play the banjo but has struggled to do so and has given up.

Because I know that’s something that should NEVER happen. 

I know, based on science and experience, that your success in learning to play has nothing to do with talent, and everything to do with how you learn, and how you practice.

Each and every person, including you, has extraordinary musical potential thanks to the magical 4-pound organ inside their heads. 

The problem is that many don’t receive the guidance needed to unlock that potential. 

Along those lines, the “No Picker Left Behind” Live Sessions are a new feature of the Breakthrough Banjo courses.

What are they?

These “No Picker Left Behind” Live Sessions are intended to help you get over the hump, and to help ensure you build the foundational knowledge and skills that are essential to making steady, consistent progress. 

It can be easy to get overwhelmed by all there is to learn, and so I want to help simplify the process so you know where to best focus your time and energy. 

In these workshops, we’ll be covering things like:

  • Exercises for building foundational technical skills
  • Exercises for training your ear 
  • How to know what to work on next
  • How to make the most of the Breakthrough Banjo course resources

These sessions will take place on Zoom (a link will be on the member home page on the day of the session, and will be emailed out), and will include a question and answer segment. 

One of the benefits of a group session like this is that others will likely have questions you haven’t thought of before. 

If you can’t attend live, don’t fear! Replays of these sessions will be available in the Breakthrough Banjo course.

Additionally, I will be varying the dates and times to try to accommodate our international members as best as possible!

“The best live Zoom experience I’ve ever had.”
