Paddy has extensive teaching experience, maintaining a busy teaching schedule, both privately and at Walton’s School of Music, one of Ireland’s largest private music schools, where his Introduction to 5 String Banjo classes have been especially popular since Paddy started them in 2012. ( Link )

Paddy also hosts Walton’s ‘Bluegrass Slow Jam’ where beginners and more experienced musicians can learn how to play bluegrass in a very enjoyable environment. (Link)

Testimonials from Paddy’s’ Introduction to 5 String Banjo course

    - M. O'Keeffe
