Charlotte Ivy was introduced to bluegrass in 2012 while visiting Virginia friends, which renewed her interest in playing guitar. She attended a Wernick Method workshop and from then on she was hooked. She took lessons, attended jams and workshops and discovered that playing with others was definitely for her!

After a move to Denton, Texas in 2018, Charlotte started leading a local jam and a traditional, bluegrass “Driveway Band” created to take music outside to neighbors. She is always ready to play with and mentor anyone who wants a playing partner. Charlotte loves the fun, music, and friendships that come from playing music with others.

“Charlotte has helped my playing tremendously, especially getting my timing in line. She has the ability and the patience to work with us learners.”
“Friendly, encouraging, and energizing for getting better and better.”
“Charlotte adapts to what you’re doing musically and is able to also entertain you with background stories. This gives students incentive to play better.”
“Playing with you is one of the best things that has happened to my music.”
