“Great teaching starts with a commitment to great learning.”

I've been a student of the banjo all my life. If anyone ever asks me to show them anything, I am proud to do so. That's one reason I became a teacher.


Mastering a musical instrument is one of the most challenging and worthwhile things anyone will ever do for themselves. The method I teach makes it easy to learn the banjo, guitar, or mandolin.  The student has my books and the audio CDs that come with the books. I also make videos of anything we are working on for the student to take home. This eliminates the confusion and makes the learning process fun and rewarding.
