Fred Brown - Music Lessons - Buffalo Music Club

Music Lessons with Fred Brown

Learn music with a pro audio production engineer, multi-Instrumentalist (Asthmatic Kitty Records), composer, and founder & owner of Lowly Mountain Banjos.

Learn to think musically. Music is what happens when we turn the deepest part of us into sound and organize it to communicate to others. To make music, we must understand that the sound is downstream from what is inside us, as well as know what we are trying to communicate. One-on-one composition lessons with me will focus on electroacoustic practices and include traditional and non-traditional notation and instrumentation, sound recording and manipulation, instrument invention and construction, and developing a personal music philosophy. Prospective students will benefit from already having a knowledge of western music theory and practices, but it is not a prerequisite. Banjo lessons will focus solely on oldtime playing styles and the associated tunes and the traditions, and learning how to develop a unique style within this context. Whether composition or performance, I believe music making is best learned as a two-way exchange of ideas toward a holistic musical understanding.

My Favorite Things to Teach

  • Instruments: Banjo (Oldtime)
  • Pursuits: Composition & Arranging, Live Sound, Music Life Mentoring, Recording & Audio Production
  • Styles: Folk, Traditional

Ages & Skill Levels

  • I work best with students of all ages
  • Beginner, intermediate, and advanced students are welcome
