Jody Hughes Teacher Reviews

Jody has been great in pushing my boundaries and very intuitive as to the kind of music I enjoy playing. For many years I have been locked into playing simple roll patterns over chords and now the whole musical languageĀ of scales has entered my world. Jody has also started me off with some jazz playing at my request. Jody is a patient teacher and excels at pacing lessons to the students ability and needs. I have also learnt some great new songs to play in my band. Highly recommend skype lessons with this guy, great value for money and time.

After buying my banjo I bought several self-learning books and DVD's. I found one that I liked more than the others, however, I just had a hard time following it. Everything of course was new to me but still I could not make progress and I thought I had no rhythm. I even started a thread "Gotta Have Rhythm" and a few members posted that either you have it or you don't, or something like that.
So, anyhow, I had Jody as a Skype teacher for a series of lessons and guess what, I had rhythm all the time but just needed a good banjo teacher to help me dig it out.
I've gone back to that self-learning book (Janet Davis) and now it is so easy to follow and my rhythm is NO problem. I'm now having more fun that ever.
I just needed a good teacher to help get me on the right track.
