I'm a beginner at the guitar. My first lesson with Jason was very great. He starts with the basics and teaches you what you want to learn. Patient and nice.

Jason is a remarkable teacher! He truly has been able to break through a mental block I've always had regarding thinking in chords rather than just reading notes. His desire to help the student reach a personal goal is so evident. Jason remained so confident that a 'light bulb' would come on that I started to believe it myself. He has put me on a good path now and did it with his confidence in me and by providing the right tools. Thank you for your patience, confidence in me, and your calm, pleasant way of teaching, Jason.

Edwin is very knowledgeable about music. He is a very adaptive to players of all skill sets and have guided me though the basics when I was once a beginner. He provides insight to the difficult questions that I come across over the years of playing guitar. He especially helped me understand music in a much larger scale. Overall, he is a well rounded teacher that is patient and supportive with his students.

After the first lesson you will be making music, playing songs and you will be on your way to achieving your musical goals with the banjo. Banjo playing requires a knowledge of chords, melody, picking technique as well as knowing songs all of which we will begin to learn in your first lesson.

I am seventy years old and have absolutely no natural ability! Robert is patience and respectful, he always find something good about what I have learned. Very encouraging. My third lesson was the best as we both seemed more relaxed and get more comfortable. I like Robert.

I would definitely recommend Robert Martin as your music teacher. He is very patient and motivating. He has a great way of explaining techniques or concepts so you can easily understand them. He is very knowledgeable about many music genres and music theory. With his instruction, I have come along way in my guitar playing since I first starting taking lessons. Very nice man and great teacher.
