Which DVD Comes Next?

We've recently updated our recommended song order for all levels of our DVDs. Because our method and material were developed over many years, we've found better ways to teach now than just plowing straight through each DVD. Take a minute to look over our ideal order for learning at every level. These are for the original releases of the DVDs. If you have NEW Beginning Banjo 1, 2, and 3 just go straight through, and don't stray from the path!
