Jodi Harbin (Norris, TN) is a career musician who teaches mandolin, guitar, banjo and bass. She was the founder of the Colorado bluegrass band, Lonesome Traveler, and has continued her involvement in the bluegrass community after moving to the Knoxville area. She now performs with several groups including The Savage Hearts, and with her husband Tim Harbin. Working with Steve Kaufman at his camp every summer has exposed her to a wide range of teachers and teaching materials on all the bluegrass instruments.

Leslie Dare & Susan West (Raleigh, NC) have found great synergy in working together to teach others the essentials of bluegrass jamming. Both grew up with music but after being musically inactive for many years, both joined the bluegrass community through their experiences at camps run by Pete and Joan Wernick, re-discovering the joys of music later in life. Leslie plays guitar and Susan plays mandolin, bass, and guitar. They are both active in the Raleigh, NC-area jamming scene, including regular participation with the Raleigh chapter of the Handsome Ladies.

“Susan and Leslie’s warm & welcoming teaching style helped me do something a little scary in each class which made me a better player.”
“Jodi did an excellent job of engaging everyone and making us feel safe. Positive fun atmosphere.”
“Jodi is so much fun to work with. She is a great teacher and always inspires me to learn more.”
“Leslie and Susan were so organized and helpful. They do a great job of gently urging a student to try something new. I learned a lot and had a great time.”
“Susan West and Leslie Dare are the best group music instructors I’ve ever experienced. I went from feeling nervous/uncomfortable about taking breaks and improvising, to feeling confident and capable.”
“Jodi has a wealth of talent, vast music knowledge but more importantly a passion for teaching, as well as compassion, flexibility and humor.”
“I feel so much better equipped to jam now. Y’all are the best!”
“Lots of fun and lots of learning. Thank you for promoting and teaching how to play music with friends- a great joy.”
