Banjo Tuition

Introducing Paul Scudds

Paul Scudds is a professional banjoist with approximately 40 years’ experience and has been teaching the 4-string banjo for some 29 years. He started learning the banjo with the original Victoria Banjo Club in 1965.

As well as featuring as a soloist, Paul has participated as a member of numerous traditional jazz bands and in musical stage productions in Melbourne and Sydney. He says his most valuable experience was playing with the Red Garter Banjo Band in Sydney at the age of 19. “That’s where I learned all the tricks of the trade” he says “Performing nightly in an underground jazz night club right in the heart of a city bursting with American troops on R&R leave was a real eye – opener for me, not just musically!”

Paul has also had extensive experience in Music Hall and old-time sing-a-long music which features the banjo and invokes audience participation.
Paul loves teaching pupils of all ages and stages of proficiency, from beginners through to advanced, as well as professionals who make their living from playing.
