While I'll still be leaving my older YouTube videos available on my channel, most of my new lessons will only be available here, for my wonderful Patreon members. 


I pledge to post at least two new instructional videos here per month, and will consider your suggestions for new tunes to post.  I'll also do my best to be responsive if you need help with a technique or some part of a lesson; just message me.

About Hilarie Burhans

I've been playing and teaching clawhammer banjo for more than 40 years. I love teaching banjo, and especially love working with beginners and with folks trying to make the transition to learning tunes from recordings or "on the fly" at jams rather than note-by-note from an instructor or from tablature.

I'm the co-founder of the nationally-touring Hotpoint Stringband, with whom I have recorded five albums, and I've collaborated on too many other musical projects to count! Well over 3000 subscribers enjoy my YouTube banjo teaching channel, and a track from my solo CD was featured on an episode of the acclaimed HBO series Deadwood. I won the Ohio State Banjo Contest nine times, and am very proud to have placed in the contests at the Appalachian Stringband Festival (Clifftop) a number of times (3rd in Banjo, and 1st in both the Traditional Band and NeoTraditional Band contests.)

Here on Patreon, you'll find that I post at least 2 new patron-only banjo tutorials per month, and often more.  I also post other banjo-related content from time to time.  I am no longer posting new public videos on my YouTube channel, although I intend to leave my older videos available for everyone to access.  I thank you most sincerely for following me to Patreon to help make it possible for me to continue to provide lots of clawhammer banjo instruction. I encourage my patrons to message me with requests for specific tunes or techniques they would like me to teach.  


Goals
15 – reached! patrons
I'll provide my very first 15 patrons with a download link at CDBaby for an album with my old-time band Sugar Pie.  The record is called A Message from Home and features Jane Rothfield on fiddle, Kellie Allen on guitar, Sabra Guzman on guitar, and me playing clawhammer banjo.  We also all sing on the record.  Just a little thank you gift from me to you!
