Aaron Farris (Conway, AR) was raised in Mountain View, AR the “Folk Music Capital of the World” where jams and bluegrass music ring through the mountains every night! Aaron has a music degree from Lyon College in Arkansas and is a licensed vocal and instrumental educator (K-12) in the state of Arkansas. He is the upright bassist for the bluegrass band “The Gravel Yard” who play all around the country. He plays and teaches all five major bluegrass instruments: banjo, fiddle, mandolin, guitar and upright bass.

“Aaron cuts to the chase and shows the easiest way to get the best bluegrass sound a song requires. He is gifted at bringing novice players together in their first jam. He is equally skilled to bring good players up to the next level. He checks all the boxes for a stellar instructor.”
“Aaron’s approach has taught me more in a short time than I ever learned with traditional music lessons. Learning the basics, and then just playing has really kept my interest up”
“Aaron has a very student-centered approach to instruction and can work with anyone that has a genuine interest in learning to play bluegrass music.”
“Aaron is a great teacher, he makes learning fun, and is able to break tunes and licks down to their simplest form.”
“Aaron is very skilled at recognizing the talent in students and meeting them where they are to take them to the next level.”
