Monthly payments available Learn more
For the first time, I'm taking my BANJO-ONLY camp to Texas! We're gonna have a ball. Expect a Texas-sized time with plenty of brisket BBQ & bluegrass!

INSTRUMENTS: 3-Finger Banjo (Beginner, Intermediate & Advanced) AND Clawhammer Banjo!

LOCATION: Banjo Ben's farm near Kilgore, Texas!

PRICE: $899 each, with 3-day supper guest passes available for purchase!

Skill Level: All skill levels welcome! I've a got a class for beginner, intermediate, and advanced pickers. No prior banjo knowledge or experience necessary for the clawhammer class.

Atmosphere: This camp is an intimidation-free zone! No one will be put on the spot or made to feel dumb! Mess ups are encouraged, because that means you're trying. I mess up all the time, haha. 

Preparation: I will help you prepare! I'll send you some tunes we'll be working on, as well as other tips to get you ready. 


I keep it small. I want to actually get to know you and join you on your pickin' journey. I'll have some of the BEST instructors in the biz, who happen to be my family and best friends: Alan Munde, Katy Lou Clark, and Bill Evans will teach the 3-finger students and Dave Dillard will teach clawhammer. 

The price is $899, which includes:

  • Small group sessions and personal attention!
  • 6 excellent meals!

  1. Can I bring my family or friends? You may purchase supper guests passes. The guests will be welcome to join us for supper around 6PM and after-supper activities. They will not be able to attend the camp during the day. 
  2. Should I fly or drive? That's up to you! The closest airport to the farm is KGGG in Longview, TX, and is an American Eagle destination. We are also 2 hours east of DFW & Love Field.
  3. What happens if it rains? I have facilities that will accommodate ;) 
  4. What will the weather be like? Might be a little chilly, but it'll be beautiful!
  5. Can I bring more than one instrument? You can, but you'll need to commit to one instrument for the learning portion of the camp. When it comes to jamming, you can play whatever you want!
