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!
I purchased “what a friend we have in Jesus” Lesson. I purchased it because I liked the rolling Scruggs style. The videos were very easy to follow the practice tracks were great too. Great product, great price.
Mike has put together a great method for teaching the banjo, from beginner songs to intermediate songs. I know that these lessons have greatly improved my playing. I had played the banjo 35 years ago, but gave it up to raise my daughters and get them through college. I found Mike’s lessons on the internet. So I decided I needed a better instrument and purchased a Deering Golden Era banjo. Being retired, I practice one to two hours every day. I now attend as many jams in my area as possible. With mike’s lessons, I am once again playing at a high level. And having fun!!
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!
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 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 been using the videos for about 18 months now and I find the presentation very easy to follow – usually awaiting next release with interest.
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!
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 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.
