Steve Caddick: “Grammy and Oscar winner Eddy Davis, Band Leader for Woody Allen’s Jazz Band, yes the movie Director, left his banjo with me after the convention to replace the frets on his custom Ome Banjo. He specifically wanted me to do it for him. I am honored. I finished fretting it and assembling it today. Here is a photo of it in my hands!

Are you interested in seeing how banjo lessons on Skype look and sound like? Here is a short video we did with 3 of my students so others may get an idea of how easy it is to use a web cam and see how a live, one on one lesson really works.  Check it out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=55Gtda8MGps  Published on Jan 1, 2013 This video will give you an idea of what taking lessons with Steve on Skype looks like. Lesson plans are designed to benefit each student at the level he or she is currently working at.
