Scruggs Style Bluegrass 5-String Banjo

About Mike

Mike has done a great job teaching me. In a year and a half, I have gone from never playing a stringed instrument, to being able to jam with friends and family. I learned basic three-finger Scruggs style bluegrass banjo, and I making moves now to become an intermediate player. I really recommend Mike. He is kind and warm-hearted, and works with you to meet you where you are and improve your game. I now know about 10 songs that I can play lead on, and I can roll or vamp as back-up on any other bluegrass song. Mike has set me up now to work with intermediate techniques. Mike will help you learn!

I have been taking banjo lessons with Mike for two months. The instruction has been really useful for me. I debated for a long time about whether or not to take formal lessons. I am so glad that I did. Mike is a very good musician and instructor. I am progressing and enjoying the experience. I highly recommend him as an instructor.

First lesson was great. I was nervous, but Mike put me at ease and made me feel right at home. The lesson flew by, and I can't wait until we meet again.

Piano Lessons in unique because I have the discipline of a highly educated musician, but the critical thinking skills of a modern day entrepreneur.

I am a regularly performing musician who has memorized hundreds of songs and pieces, making it easy to train any student on the fly. Teaching lessons is NOT just learning notes on the page, it is playing music by ear, understating how music works, and understanding how the student learns.

Clearly a highly experienced and student-centered instructor. Focus is on the students goals, developing a concise and achievable path to success, and use of proper technique to pursue the individual, would-be singer's aspirations. HIGHLY recommend.

I have been taking lessons from Barbara for 3 to 4 months now.I live in a condo so when I practice every 2 weeks I take my PA.over to my x girl friends house to practice .She is the person who got me started 12 years ago and she knows my voice well.She rarely compliments me on anything which is common for an x girlfriend, however the last 2 times I practiced at her house ,she cracks a big smile and says with suprise"You have gotten better!"Thanks Barbara!

My goal is not so much teaching one how to play an instrument, but more broadly, to help one cultivate their own living musicality. My own areas of practice, study, and specialization are in free improvisation, sound art/Sonic sculpture, conceptual performance, and songwriting/composition. I've explored a vast number of different styles and genre. Jazz, classical, folk and bluegrass, spirituals, blues, punk rock, contemporary ghospel, electronic dance and ambient, to name a few... I love working with kids, I love teaching any age any skill level, I promise to listen, and fine tune our lesson to fit your specific personality and needs.

Knows how to listen and communicate on what needs to be done to achieve individual goals as well hit the basic music theory.

Andrew is great - really like his versatility in working with beginners or experts. He is able to accommodate and adjust based on what your goals are (i.e. he can start with basics of music to start at the very beginning or he can help you learn a song knowing the bare minimum. ) He's always on time and very flexible with schedules.

Rachel was such a pleasure to work with.
Very knowledgeable and patient. Definitely a great teacher and would recommend her to everyone. It was very easy to work with her. Our girls loved learning from her and always looked forward to class days with her.

Rachel is an amazing, encouraging, and patient piano teacher. As an adult picking up piano for the first time it was a bit intimidating to me, but she makes it fun and allows you to go at your own pace. You can definitely tell she has a passion for music and it comes across in the way in which she teaches.

Rachel was wonderful with our son! (4 & 7)
