More About Me

' Have played with various bands and taught banjo, guitar, mandolin, bass and now dobro in the greater Jacksonville area for over thirty years. In addition ' served as vice-president of the North Florida Bluegrass Association for two terms in 1986 and 1987. I quit the active band and pickin' scene twelve years ago to devote more evenings and weekends to my family. However, I've continued teaching, and now that my children are grown have been working at getting the old band level"chops" back. Both my former and current students have brought me an immense degree of satisfaction and joy over the past twenty-five years or so. They've made a huge impact for bluegrass music in Northeast Florida as either founders or members of various bands and as officers and active members of the NFBA. They have become some of our music's finest, faithful, hard-working representatives of our in this area, and I'm extremely proud of both their contributions and achievements. Mike Elin


I've been a student of Mike's for two months and it has been great. No complaints at all. - banjoV

Mike Elin taught me my very first banjo lessons in the early 1980s! His emphasis on technique and accuracy have stayed with me for all these years, and through several bands. And I'm still playing! Thanks Mike! - MattMahan
