If you want an in depth program which I recommend or if you are a person who wants to learn a few songs that's ok. If you are a newbie there are basics you need: hand position, tuning the banjo and learning a few basic rolls and simple chords. I can teach you Scruggs style, Don Reno style, Bill Keith Melodic Style, Pat Cloud Jazz style or other areas one wants to pursue.
I don't like to teach 1/2 hr lessons as it seems to short a time for a good lesson. If you insist I can do a 1/2hr lesson. I hate to add this, so many people will not practice and they lose interest quickly. I took lessons with Bill Keith every week and he told me if I didn't practice he would know it and cut me back to bi-weekly lessons and if I persisted with no practice he would fire me. He said I don't want to waste my time nor your father's money. It is worth the time to practice even though you can't see the point but suddenly you will reach a plateau where you sound great. By the way I never ...

About Thomas

I'm patient with my students and my main goal is to have them learn something that will give them pleasure in their life and the possibility of performing later on. If a student wants to go far then I can give him or her more in depth chord theory on the banjo and different scales like Pentatonic,

Hi! I'm Michele. I'm a yoga teacher and coach and I teach gentle and grounded yoga classes that will strengthen your body and mind.

I've completed 200 hours of training in vinyasa yoga and additional hours in trauma-informed yoga. I provide a warm, safe, and encouraging space for you to deepen your practice as you reap the amazing benefits of a regular practice.

"After years of taking lessons in various other instruments, Dan was easily the best instructor I've ever had. He was able to quickly adapt to my background in music, anticipate and fill in any gaps in knowledge that I had, and had the patience to answer my many, many questions. This was my first set of singing lessons ever, and my first lessons online, and he made it all feel very natural and specialized to my needs. He set clear goals for me, listened to what I wanted to get out of lessons, and guided me through everything. Not only is he an excellent instructor, he's just a really kind, patient, and enjoyable person to be around and talk with. Can't recommend him enough"

"You can say that I'm a rookie when it comes to playing guitar. So, I decided to do something about it. I'm taking 45 minutes sessions with Nick and I have to say that he is a really talented a teacher as well as he is a musician. While having fun during the lessons, I rake in so many new tricks up my sleeve. I love his individual approach, flexibility, and creativity just to outline a couple. For the short while that I've known Nick, he's been all, a patient teacher, a talented musician, but most of all he's been an inspiration to me. My goal was to learn to read music and learn how to play the instrument more fluently. But now, the whole world of new and fascinating opportunities opened up to me because of his mentoring and support. Thank you Nick! I wish I could take longer sessions with you on a more regular basis."

She has the initiative to expose them to a variety of music genres, so they moved beyond classic music to also Queen and other modern pieces. I feel super lucky that Dilys could take my kids as students. A teacher like Dilys makes a huge difference."

"Professor Kenneth Robinson is an excellent piano instructor.

In the course of one year, he has taught my wife and I introduction to the piano keyboard, musicianship, the primary harmonies ( I - IV - V)(Triad-3 Note Chords), C major chords and F major chords. Then we progressed to relative and poly chords. Professor Robinson taught us how to play a variety of church praise songs utilizing these skills and techniques. Thanks to his phenomenal teaching skills we are now the Church Musicians of our local lay ministry. We are honored to have been trained under his musical mentorship. We highly recommend him to anyone who is serious about music lessons."
