Franks Session:

Frank teaches banjo playing techniques by teaching tunes that incorporate the techniques he shares in the session.  His choice of content and format for the session will depend in part on the needs and interests of the participants.  Frank will have written handout materials for students to take with them after the session, and strongly encourages participants to obtain and bring audio recorders (with fresh batteries).  Frank intends that his students take away new tunes from the session and perform them solo.
