Here's a little bit of Rock the Cradle Joe on my new Missing Link baritone banjo :) maryzcox.com
Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays 2017 My banjo website is newly updated. Please visit and have a look @ what's been happening this last year and all the fun banjo adventures ahead. www.maryzcox.com There's a gift special for folks wanting to catch up on my new tab books and cds too. If you order any 2 tab books or cds from my website--you'll also receive a copy of "Girl With the Banjo Tattoo " as a free gift for the holidays. Since I now have recorded 10 cds and they are all available digitally--I've decided not to reprint Cds that have sold out as I need to make room for future cds. I know some folks do still like to have hard copy cds to play in the car or on their good sound systems--if you have been waiting to purchase some of my cds--someday--now is the time. Banjo Dreamin' Suwannee Nights CD hardcopy is sold out. Also--I'm getting low on these titles Florida Banjo Walkin That Banjo Home Chickens Crowin At Midnight I'll keep printing the tab books that go with all the cds as long as they are ordered. Thanks for everyone that has ordered my cds and books in the past & a very happy holiday season to you & your families, Mary Z Cox

Banjo at John C Campbell coming in April !

Here is a fun class coming up for all those folks
who are past students or folks who can
 already play and have the basics down
and want to charge ahead with more technique
and new tunes :) The JC Campbell School is
a wonderful place for a banjo get together!
If you've been thinking about coming to one
 of my classes here--and you are not a beginner
--please do--we are
going to have a really good time !

Please sign up early as the best housing goes first :)
INTERMEDIATE CLAWHAMMER BANJO: EXPAND YOUR TECHNIQUES
Date: Sunday, Apr 7 - Friday, Apr 12, 2013

Subject: Music Instructor: Mary Z. Cox

Share: Eager to drop-thumb with the right hand
and creep up the neck on the first and second strings
 like the old-time banjo players?
 If you already frail and can play a few clawhammer
banjo tunes, but would like to strengthen your
right- and left-hand technique while learning new
 tunes, join us for a very hands-on class to stretch
your playing. We may even try a waltz, and sing
while playing a tune, too! Levels 3 & 4
 (Can play 10 or more tunes, perhaps not up to tempo,
but you feel very comfortable with the instrument.)
Prior to registering, please read our General Information and Policies.
