"I was a banjo player with 7-8 years of experience of being self-taught and a year or two with another music teacher when I started my lessons with Tim. Tim, literally, had to take me back to square one so that I could unlearn a ton of bad habits. Tim's focus on fundamentals allowed me to get better at playing the banjo much faster than the various techniques I had tried to employ over the years. Good clean playing is Tim's goal...not just fast. Speed will come as long as the basics are adhered to and you practice. Obviously, there are no short cuts to be a good banjo player, but Tim's instruction enabled me to become a much better player, both fundamentally and musically, in a very short period of time. "
