Jesse was not only an instructor but also a mentor for my daughter. He is very patient and realistic besides being very knowledgable and talented. She learned and improved a lot. We were lucky to start this journey with Jesse.

I am a senior student and Jesse knew what was needed to develop a course of classwork and homework to enable me to have more fun with the melodious ukulele. I appreciate his clear, concise, and congenial approach — serious, mindful, and leisurely.

Edwin was patient and very knowledgeable, he moved me along by using my musical skills while emphasising the basics to provide a firm foundation. He gave me some immediate gratification and set up some good challenges to work on for my next lesson. He is a talented teacher, and it felt like he was right in the room with me. Highly recommend!

Edwin is very kind, patient and loves what he does. He took the time to understand what I wanted from the lessons and then quickly started me down the path of learning to play the guitar.

Michelle has been a patient and supportive Banjo instructor! As an adult learner with absolutely no experience with stringed instruments, my learning curve has been steep! Michelle is an expert musician! She is encouraging and makes lessons fun. I highly recommend Michelle! I consider myself so fortunate to have found her!!!

Michelle is a great instructor! Starting lessons as an adult I thought would be difficult, however she is very accommodating and helpful. She takes the time to figure out your strengths, as well as see what you can work on. Every suggestion she makes is helpful and beneficial. I’m excited to see where the lessons with her will go!

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.

Mel is a very patient and knowledgable teacher. I feel like I fumble along at the beginning of a lesson but by the end Mel has improved my technique and timing. I would definitely recommend Mel to anyone who wants to learn or improve on their instrument!

I've been teaching banjo for 4 years helping students develop a love for the instrument and learn more about music along the way. My specialty is Scruggs style picking, but I'm also comfortable teaching clawhammer, reno, or melodic styles and enjoy working on hybrid and progressive styles, too. Within the first few lessons you'll have a solid base of picking and chord changes and even a few simple songs under your belt. Moving on from there I will craft lessons to move you toward a "goal song," making sure to cater your progress to your needs while keeping a focus on good technique. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!
