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.

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play recognizable Bluegrass tunes. First, starting off with simple arrangments and then building as you become more advanced. I typically use "You Can Teach Yourself Banjo" It breaks everything down and gets you up and running very quickly. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

I would highly recommend Eric at House of Music for guitar lessons. I am after a certain style of guitar music using finger picking to play for my special needs son. I have learned that not all teachers are familiar with this style. Thankfully, Eric is great at it. He is also teaching me how to read music and not just play the chords or tab which is something I had overlooked. I am thankful he has been able to work with me and my unique set of circumstances and help me reach my goals.

Eric Lesko taught my son Brian guitar 18 years ago when Brian was a teenager. My son got to a point that he didn't want to practice and we were thinking about giving up the lessons. However, Eric got Brian playing whatever kind of music my son was interested in and he continued taking for a few years thereafter, completely enjoying it. When I decided to take up the guitar around eight years ago, Eric was the first and only instructor I thought of. Besides being very capable musically, he is willing to move in any direction that you want in order to keep you interested and helping you achieve your goals. He always has suggestions on ways to approach a particular piece in order to make playing fun and not frustrating. He is also well-versed in the use of technology to make playing a continuum as you gain skills, making a huge difference in being able to get more out of practice. Finally, he is conveniently located in a new facility in downtown Oviedo and he is very flexible with lesson days and times. Eric's greatest asset is that he wants the student to enjoy playing as much as he does!

Private Banjo Teacher

I have been playing and teaching banjo since 2006, and I'm always very excited to introduce new students to this unique instrument. I focus on the "Scruggs-style" method of playing 5-string banjo, and we'll work on techniques used in common bluegrass and folk tunes. As you advance, I'll help you in creating your own banjo solo breaks.

So far so good. Very patient as mistakes after mistake was made. Corrected quite a few mistakes I was making so that my habits would be good habits from the start. Let me talk to myself as I messed up and complimented me when I was on the right track.

complete novice; adult student. First lesson very relaxed. Excellent blend through-out lesson of questions and information my goals and background as well as instructor's goals for me and his background. First "technical" part of lesson was manageable and care taken by Lyle to make sure I understood what was being presented. I left the first lesson feeling this would be a good fit between instructor and student

Online Banjo Teacher

I specialize in blues, rock and funk guitar on both the electric and acoustic, I also teach the electric bass and the banjo. I will teach-the fundamentals of music, ie. rhythm, melody and harmony, and then assist you on your journey to finding your own unique musical styling. I believe that music is the ultimate form of SELF expression so it is important that you tell me what inspires YOU and what your personal music goals are. Their are multiple ways to conceptualize the music and i will be your ally in finding what ways work best for you. i will customize lesson plans based on your personal music journey and where you want to get in your playing. whether you want to compose your own symphonies, write your own concept album, play some covers on the weekends, or just better yourself as a human being it would be my honor to teach you

About Zachary

I have been playing the guitar since my teenage years and it has been an integral part of me maturing into a responsible adult. The dedication and patience that learning an instrument have taught me are skills that i have applied to my academic and professional life. I hope to be able to impart not

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. Long a mainstay of bluegrass music, banjos have recently been incorporated into pop music as well by bands like Mumford and Sons. And, if YouTube trends are any indication, it looks like the banjo is making another genre shift! A pack of viral videos featuring banjo covers of hard rock classics are making the rounds and proving that banjos can shred just a …
