Clawhammer Banjo

A staple in the folk music traditions, Queen Bee offers banjo classes in the clawhammer style of playing banjo. In these group classes, you'll learn chords and melodies from traditional American folk music with an emphasis on repertoire played at the Queen Bee Old-Time Jam.


Spring Session begins the week of April 1! 

Each class will also be live-streamed and recorded for individuals who are not able to attend in person.

Cancellation and Refund Policies

All Queen Bee classes need a minimum of three students to run. If a class does not meet that requirement, the class will be canceled, and registered students will be offered the following choices:

  • a credit for private lessons at the amount of their tuition

  • the registration fee can be transferred to a fully tax-deductible donation, or 

  • a refund. 


Credits must be used within the calendar year; they expire on December 31. Two-person classes may run as a semi-private lesson, at the discretion of Queen Bee administration and the teacher. 


Registration for classes remains open for 3 weeks after a session begins. Students can drop a class and receive a refund for remaining classes through the third week of the session. After week 3, registration fees are non-refundable.
