I’ve worked my way through many of Mike’s beginner lessons and now I’m starting on the intermediate lessons. His arrangements are excellent at both levels, and his videos will walk you through all the trouble spots! These lessons are a great way to add to your repertoire. This music is fun to play!
Clear, easy to follow instruction. These lessons have made me want to learn more. I highly recommend you try them. What ever level you are at, they really are excellent.
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 able to learn from your lessons quite well but as I am getting on in age 73, and it takes a while for me to commit it to memory. I find it easier to play if I am not looking at the tabs. I think it would help me personally if there were maybe sets of 3 or 4 phrases looped a few times to play along with.
I feel like you’re in the room teaching me the correct finger placement and chords. The former is extremely valuable because when I think I’ve done things correctly, I review the lesson and often times hear myself saying “oops!”. i’m a total beginner and have been practicing about one hour per day for a little over a year now. Progress is s-l-o-w, but your lessons make it fun. Thanks and keep ’em coming.
Lessons always so helpful with varied content. I am in the UK so really benefit from speedy arrival of purchased lessons. Mike even tab’d a bluegrass tune for me from audio! Thanks.
Hi Mike, I just wanted to say how happy I am with your downloadable banjo instruction videos. Clear precise instruction, professionally presented, also good to have the songs at different tempos that’s a real help. Keep up the good work.
I’m from France and the lessons received are very useful and very well teached!!!!
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 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.
