In her introduction to her "Clawhammer Banjo - Beginner Module 1" Cathy Fink states "Whatever works and makes the music you want to make, go for it!" but it's undeniable that having a great teacher to get you started on the right track helps a lot. Join us for a two hour introduction to Clawhammer Banjo taught by a master of the form. Get started right here, right now! Or, if you already play a little, solidify your right hand and early chords.

Cathy Fink is a Grammy-winning performer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has been playing old time banjo for over 30 years. She has won the West Virginia State Banjo Contest three times, and her CD, Banjo Haiku, has become a classic in its genre. Cathy's teaching skills have been honed at music camps throughout the country, and she has made several popular lessons available through her website. Cathy performs and records with Marcy Marxer. Together they have toured the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Japan, New Zealand and Australia.
