“Professor Banjo plays banjo (naturally) and the kazoo, and sings... His bass-baritone voice is sure and steady; his playing clear and clean. All in all, it’s a really pleasant trip to a simpler time with friends and family.”

Professor Banjo with Kids

     Paul Silveria performs for families as the banjo-slinging, old-time singing "Professor Banjo" entertaining children with sing-a-longs, dancing games, and stories, all accompanied by great old-time music that parents will enjoy too! Professor Banjo interacts directly with the kids, taking suggestions and inviting participation, all while avoiding a saccharine delivery. His quick wit and responsive stage presence make these shows fun for a range of ages - from toddlers to school-aged kids, and even older siblings often join the fun!

     With experience as a pre-school and K-12 teacher, Professor Banjo creates an atmosphere where kids follow their own intuition and take part in the ways that best suit them.

     Paul can bring his interactive Professor Banjo performance or Square Dance workshop to your school. Please visit for details.
