I just wanted to say thanks for the workshop you held in Atlanta. It was exactly what I needed and I think everyone else there felt the same way. The way you were able to tailor the workshop to fit everyone's needs was very impressive

....I learned more from Ross in four quick hours than I did in all other camps combined. He is a great teacher. Please put me on his list for next year. I also appreciate all the work you put into letting us know when he'll be in town. He's lucky to have your help. Thanks, Tom

Ross Nickerson On the Road This is a link to all the places I traveled to last year and am scheduled to visit this year coming up.
.....I was at the Midwest Banjo Camp - Lansing, MI, last June and watched you play banjo on Saturday evening. You play amazingly well. My daughter
and I had never seen anyone play a banjo so cleanly and with such speed before. You are really a gifted artist.
.......I learned more from you at your clinic than I did at the two other clinics I've attended combined! That you are the best instructor around was reinforced after meeting you in person
