Geoff Hohwald has been playing banjo since the 1960’s. He quickly became active in the bluegrass community in Ohio as a teenager and has played with a number of bands ever since.
Geoff is also the author of the Banjo Primer Deluxe instructional book package on top of literally dozens of other banjo lesson books. Geoff is the owner and talent for www.banjocompass.com which provides a massive selection of banjo lessons. Many of the lessons are free.
Geoff is also one of the owners of the Watch and Learn publishing company. They publish a full line of musical instrument instruction on book, dvd and cd.
Geoff also owned several music stores from the 1980’s to around 2000 and was an active participant in the Atlanta musical instrument resale community. During this time his son Andy began working at the music stores and developed an extensive knowledge of a variety of musical instruments.
Andy Hohwald started selling musical instruments online around the millennium and built a store called ATL Music and Education. Over the next 15 years ATL Music and Education provided a full service music store online and in the Atlanta area.
Between Andy and Geoff they play 8 different musical instruments. Geoff can play the guitar, banjo and mandolin. Andy plays upright bass, electric bass, banjo, piano, trombone and the djembe. Andy also is the author of the Upright Bass Primer instructional book which is published by Watch and Learn.
