Hi, I’m Geoff Hohwald, I’ve been playing the banjo for more than 40 years, and it’s my mission to help people just like you become the banjo player you’ve always wanted to be. I’ve played with some pretty talented people in my career, including The Atlanta Pops Orchestra and the Greater Atlanta Bluegrass Band.

You may recognize the Banjo Primer Book and DVD, I’m proud to say that since I wrote the Banjo Primer in 1982 it has helped more than 200,000 people around the world learn how to play the banjo. Maybe you’re one of them.

Today, I want to welcome you to my website GeoffHohwald com.

You can ask questions, share experiences and even acquire information and recommendations about what kind of banjo would work best for you All from someone that you trust in one convenient place.

The blog on this site will give us all an opportunity to share knowledge about banjos and learning to play the banjo.
