Well thought out and organized.I just want to express my appreciation for your Online Banjo Lessons. Everything is really well thought out and organized . I'm starting to love to wear the picks. This will keep me busy for awhile, I will recommend banjo to everyone.

I ordered the Encyclopedia based on reviews I had read from others. While I'm just starting out, I have to agree that the book is indispensable. I received the Beginners Kit with the banjo, but prefer the Encyclopedia. The only advantage the kit has are the DVD/CDs, which, after looking through everything, happen to follow the Encyclopedia since the book in the kit is a condensed version of the Encyclopedia. The Encyclopedia is currrently my primary method of learning.

Ross, Just wanted to say thank you soooo much for putting out incredible material. My mother is the retired music teacher that you have talked to lately, we both have just picked up the banjo. I have been playing trombone for about 27 years now, am 6 hours away from my masters in performance. Let me just say that your material is OUTSTANDING! It truly does feel like you are there with us to guide us along. This has been so much fun to learn and I would really like to thank you for such wonderful material and for your great talent on this instrument. Thanks again and have a GREAT day!
