We are thrilled with Calvin! He's so encouraging and patient with my 7-year old son. Very friendly and engaging. I also greatly appreciate the level of detail in lesson preparedness and materials to use throughout the week for practice.

Great Work! Wonderful teacher! I'm really encouraged to keep this music dream alive! I had some basics and now Calvin has given me positive reinforcement and some practice exercises that will push me past my 'learning plateau'! Thanks!!

Today was my 3rd lesson with Steve. It's honestly been amazing! He's super understanding and is very prepared. He is so dedicated to his students being successful that he even emails me audio files of him playing guitar over a song I'm learning so I have someone to practice with. If you want an amazing banjo teach look no further.

Steve puts you at ease during your lesson, he has patience and explains things very well. I have just started with Steve but I am excited to learn and I feel he can take my playing to where I want it to be. Thanks Steve!

He was able to assess my skill level after talking a bit and had a clear plan to help me begin to learn to play the banjo and understand why I am playing what I'm playing. I'm looking forward to practicing and seeing where this all goes."

"Mike is a super musician himself, but he has met me at my true-beginning level. Mike has a way of making you feel very comfortable while imparting proper techniques and advice. He is very patient with my beginning fumbles, while challenging me to make some progress each week. I really recommend him as a teacher. In three weeks, I have three songs I am working on and four finger rolls, with advice on how to learn to be more smooth when chording. This pace was adjusted for myself, as he will adjust to your own current level. You get some funny stories too (always helps)."
