- The BANJOREE annually offers WORKSHOPS on specific instruments and specific topics, held by selected musicians . In doing so, we strive for diversity and balance and, of course, for quality.
- Further courses/symposia/activities are prepared, developed and offered by the participants themselves.
- Each participant can consider whether he/she can and would like to enrich the banjoree with his/her own contributions.
The individual appointment blocks should take about 1 -1 1/2 hours. We plan the proposals after consultation, as far as possible in the workshop program.

Your contribution to BANJOREE – Give and Take
The BANJOREE is co-designed by all participants. Everyone can get involved: for example in jams, at the evening concerts, with the passing on of experiences, etc. or in the spontaneous exchange of knowledge. Talk to people if you want to learn a tune and be ready to show or teach others.
