I am new to the 5 string banjo, and I am looking to learn! Would like to chat about setting something up. Let me know what times you have open, and what is the best way to contact you. Thanks, Dean - deanrussell
I started with your online lessons in April 2015, the free Clawhammer Crash Course was great. I then signed up for Clawhammer 101, and 30 Days to better Banjo (which I have not finished yet). I am very happy with the way your online instruction style and I have learned a lot. In a little over 4 months I can play 4 songs and my wife says when I practice it actually sounds like I'm playing a banjo!
Sometime I plan to contact you for a lesson, just to have a face to face to see on where I can improve.
Thanks, Dave - OTDave
Thanks for the kind words, Old Time Dave!
Glad to hear your getting value from my online lessons.
Take care and keep in touch, - redbear
I have taken lessons from lots of banjo teachers over the years. They were all good people and good musicians, and eager to share their knowledge. But as a teacher. Ryan is in a class by himself. He has thought a lot about the learning process - everything from how to practice efficiently, to when knowing a little music theory can make a big difference. And he has built up a library of hundreds of hours of lessons and classes. Sometimes, he'll follow up a lesson with a short video clip demonstrating how to play something I am struggling with. - JeremyIggers
