or

....I want Ross to know that I've been trying to learn the banjo, off and on, for 20 years. Since receiving the Beginning Banjo stuff in the past month, I have progressed farther than in the previous 20 years combined. I am so surprised at what I can still learn, even at 52, and the joy it has brought into my life, particularly at this time of the year

Beginning Banjo Book Reviews

......I just received your "Beginning the 5-String Banjo." so before getting starting with the banjo, I sat down and read the entire book from cover to cover and listened to the DVD. It is the clearest, most direct and helpful book imaginable. It answered all my questions, gave me some really useful tips and information and has a crisp, clear starting point and path. The book and the DVD are also so encouraging and the progression so positive it really does give the reader comfort and a sense of having a gifted teacher right in the room. I can't imagine not buying all your other books.


Ross,
.....Just wanted you to know that I've learned more from reading only 13 pages of your Learning The Five String Banjo book than I have in two lessons from my (former) instructor. I am a special ed teacher myself so I know the difference between knowing a lot of material and teaching it to someone. By the way if you ever decide to get back to this area, save me a slot on your schedule as a life-time student!!! Thanks again.

.....Just want to take a minute to say thank you to Ross and the Beginning the 5 String Banjo book, cd and dvd! I have wanted to learn banjo for 30 years, have owned one for 2 years and am finally now - thanks to Ross - learning to play! This is so cool~God bless you

........I ordered Ross Nickerson's Begging Lessons banjo CD and am really pleased with it. I had previously ordered another persons beginner banjo CD from another site and all it did was showcase his playing. No real instructions. Ross Nickersons's lessons are almost like having him as a private instructor. Finally I'm learning the banjo as it should be taught
........I bought a Fender FB 59 from a friend of mine and have your “Beginning the five-string banjo book, cd, and dvd. I’ve been at it for about 7 months and my wife is amazed at my progress. I practice from a half hour to an hour a day (sometimes more) and I love every minute of it.Thanks for putting out a great product and helping me to fulfill a life long desire.

......I wanted you to know that my only fan - my wife - could not believe that it was me plunking on the banjo after I got your beginners manual. She said it "almost" sounded like music. I am so happy with your beginners manual that I ordered one as a gift for a friend of mine

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! Mike Montgomery O=='={::}
