I’ve found your lessons incredibly helpful. You explain everything really clearly and the material you choose is varied and interesting. I also really appreciate the fact that you have things to develop all the skills, as well as learning songs, and that you explain which skills a particular song will help with. I’ve learned a huge amount from your lessons. Thank you so much.
I enjoy the structure of the videos and arrangements of the tablature. Some parts of the videos challenge me, while other parts re-inforce my picking vocabulary. I just want to keep learning, have fun and keep the fingers rolling. Thanks.
I love Mike’s lessons, it’s like having an instructor sitting there with you. He is quite an accomplished artist and if you can’t learn something from his free lessons you just might need to try harder. Thank you again for the free lessons.
I just happened to run across one of your free lesson’s on the Internet. I have been playing and just spinning my wheels for many years. I really started to improve after watching one of your lesson’s I was at the point of just giving up the banjo. I have only taken one lesson and that was twenty years ago. I am pretty much starting all over again and I really feel that because of you method I am really enjoying playing again. So thank you for doing what you do!
I have been learning the banjo for about a year. I love the book “Intro to Melodic banjo”. The practice routines, scales and theory are just what I need right now. There are a lot of great tunes to keep me happy for a long time. I am learning “Liberty” from the book and I have to be patient with myself . I have small hands and have to spend time getting some of the stretches right.
I love the sound tracks in different speeds I play the song then I make up my own back up and return to the song it is as if I have my own band I love it.
I have been picking banjo for 2 years. My instructor is strictly Scruggs style and a traditionalist. I always show him any tabs I’ve downloaded for his approval before taking on any new projects. He has never once disagreed with your instruction techniques and has referred other students to your website as well. Thanks for all you do Mike and for helping me to increase my song list…James
I enjoy watching and learning from your teaching of the banjo on YouTube. You are a great teacher, easy to understand, and so informative. You have a way of teaching and being able to apply the lessons to immediate playing. The lessons keep me interested and motivated!!!! Thank you for the free lessons and also reasonable prices for those who want to get more involved.
Mike is well qualified and a great teacher. His videos are easy to follow. He is very approachable. I highly recommend you try his lessons.
I am an “old and in the way” beginner banjo player who is so carried away with Mike and his Banjoland method!!! It is just what I have been searching for!!! I highly recommend!!!! Thank you, Mr. Mike
