had many banjo lessons but i find yours are the best the main thing in your lessons is that you show in detail the left hand position and the correct finger to use.
I’m from France and the lessons received are very useful and very well teached!!!!
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 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 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.
Absolutely brilliant Mike, love your tutorials!
I started the banjo at the age of 65. Being a guitarist and having visited the Appalacians in Georgia some years ago I got the urge after seeing the great pickers in that region. I have made a great deal of progress thanks to Mikes methodical and easy to follow approach. His tabs and backup tracks make this a foolproof way to learn. It’s only up to you to put in the time and effort.. I would recommend Mike’s method to anyone starting the banjo.
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 Mike’s style of banjo teaching. His lesson videos are just great and he is very clear and precise with his instruction. Mike has such a nice easy and relaxed style. Great tabs too! It’s a real pleasure to learn from him – thanks Mike!
I love learning from Mike! His teaching method is very to follow in that he breaks the tunes down measure by measure, explaining, and showing, placement of both hands. (I’m one who learns best by sight so I just cover the tab with paper.) The additional source files are terrific and I appreciate how he takes licks and/or techniques from a particular tune and teaches, in a separate video, how to implement them in other tunes.
