I really enjoy teaching and music education has always been an important part of my work.

Over the past fifteen years I have helped hundreds of students learn the 5-string banjo through workshops and one-to-one lessons.

Over the years I’ve run workshops on many areas of folk music. Do get in contact if you’re looking for a music workshop leader for your event.

One-to-one banjo lessons

Ed is available for one-to-one banjo lesson in person in London or remotely using Zoom. 

The pandemic year has been extremely challenging for all musicians but one of the unexpected joys has been having the chance to learn just how effective zoom music teaching can be. 

It’s been fantastic finding all the new ways to communicate and teach music remotely through this platform.
