The banjo reviews database is here to help educate people before they purchase an instrument. Of course, this is not meant to be a substitute for playing the instrument yourself!

Many of you have benefitted from Chris's instructional posts here on the Hangout. I have had the benefit of taking some lessons from Chris. He has a remarkable ability to assess where you are in your "journey", to simplify the things that you are working on and send you away with enough homework to keep you going for a long time. He has an absolute passion for the banjo and Bluegrass that comes out in every lesson. He also has enough experience in teaching that I get a sense that he knows how to read a student and determine the best strategy for them. Chris's other job is teaching English as a second language to adults, so he has professionally developed teaching skills that transfer to his banjo instruction.
Chris also makes a CD summary of each lesson, which I find very helpful. I can go back and review the CD.
If you are interested in learning to play Bluegrass banjo and live in the Toronto area, Chris is your man.
