At my age I thought I would never grasp the basics, let alone play a few songs on the banjo. But at 55 I’m impressed at the progress I’ve achieved. Thanks to Mike’s easy to read tabs and concise instructional videos,I have been able to follow his lessons and play my very first instrument . Keep up the good work !!
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
I have started playing banjo again after 1o years. I find the lessons very easy to follow and the back up tracks are great. I don’t have anyone to jam with so these are invaluable. Many thanks. Tom.
Mike is a wonderful teacher. The lessons are clear and the tab for each measure,along the bottom of the video, make doing the lesson extremely easy. I have improved in my playing a great deal by using lessons provided by Mike.
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.
Mike delivers an excellent “package”! His lessons are direct and to the point. I like the fact that you can purchase as little as one song at a time at very affordable price. A lesson/song includes three videos, tab, and three different Mp3’s with choice of speeds! Start slow and work up to full speed if you choose. Lessons also includes, full screen video of right hand and left hand as well as the tab embedded in the screen. Mike will walk/talk you through the entire tune as he plays at a slow enough speed, making it easy to follow. Highly recommended!
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’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.
Mike creates very detailed lessons and writes excellent tabs. I’ve also had Mike do some lessons with my kids via Skype and have found he’s also a great one-on-one teacher. Thanks Mike!
Well taught lessons, easy to understand for a beginner, quick gratification.
