Great teacher! Very easy to communicate!! Super talented!!
Jenny
I had my first harmonica lesson with Ronnie and he is awesome! He is very passionate and knowledgeable about music. As a teacher, he is patient and thorough. I appreciate that he was able to simplify concepts for me and took the time to identify my goals. For our first lesson he was intentional about not jumping in too quickly and helping me set realistic expectations for my progress. I left feeling excited to turn this interest into a long-term passion. His communication is great and he is responsive via email and text. I had a change in my schedule for the first lesson. When I reached out to him to ask about changing the time he was understanding and flexible. I felt safe meeting in his home and he has an adorable dog (which is an obvious bonus).

My daughter wanted to share that he teaches her very well.

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.

Great lesson! Thanks!
Robert C.
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

"Mark is an exceptional teacher. I have been taking banjo lessons with Mark, both bluegrass style and clawhammer. He is able to teach well so many other string instruments like ukelele, mandolin and guitar. His wide knowledge base allows him to help you with any instrument or situation. He is very patient, observant and detail oriented. I like that he is able to assess my issues quickly and provide good feedback. He builds confidence in you. The best thing that you can hear from Mark is "for you the best way to approach this...". His lessons are really tuned to you as an individual with the best plan and strategy that will work for you and your weaknesses and strengths. You end up doing things that you thought were too difficult for you just a week before. He's great!"
