Gina has got that happy knack of teaching with insight into the hurdles one has to jump to get over, with patience and enthusiasm. She is a top class performer too I have just bought her CD "True Colors", what a voice and a poet too, don't miss it.
I can't wait for my next lessons with her.

Gina was recommended to me as an excellent online banjo instructor and she has more than lived up to that reputation. I started taking online lessons with her a year ago from Europe and my progress with the banjo has sky-rocked faster than all the work I tried on my own with books. Gina's clear and patient instruction style makes learning easy, and her feedback on my progress inspires me to practice and be passionate about the banjo. Whether it's for banjo instruction in person or online, I highly recommend Gina!

Gina is an amazing musician and teacher. I have been taking online lessons with her for over two years and am very pleased with the progress I have made. In large part due to her teaching expertise. Obviously there is no substitute for diligent practice but it helps to have a skilled teacher to guide you on your learning journey. Gina is a patient listener who aligns her teaching to my goals while recognizing my growing competency . Gina always inspires me to take my playing to the next level and she charts the learning path to get there. I highly recommend Gina !

Gina has been wonderful to work with, and easy to communicate with. My 10 year old son has been learning quickly under her guidance, and looks forward with eagerness to every lesson. I highly recommend Gina, both for the high caliber of her playing, and for the skill with which she imparts her knowledge.
