Just had my first lesson on learning to play the Banjo. Lynn appears to be the perfect teacher for me. She is extremely knowledgeable, yet was able to explain the basics that made sense with my novice understanding, and gave great constructive feedback, as well as encouragement and praise. I look forward to many more lessons with Lynn.

He knows how to teach, but he taught from his iPad, iPhone, in his car. I kept asking him how to draw, and he kept showing me from his iPad. This didn't translate to a good experience. If he wants to teach, he needs to do it NOT from his car.

"Lisa is excellent in teaching certain rolls. Most impressive to me was when I wanted to transpose music to tablature. After transposing she wrote it out a different way to fit my style of playing. I needed to be more focused on the left hand rather than my right hand. Her level of patience is great and I feel very comfortable talking to her."

Are Heavy Metal Banjos The Next Big Thing?

Loud, jangly, and twangy, the banjo is an instrument with a distinctive voice that immediately evokes the spirit of the American South.
