Kelly (Online Banjo Student) “I have been taking lessons with Jody for almost a year now via Zoom and it has been the most gratifying experience. I hesitated taking lessons via a computer but it is so much better than taking a lesson in person from someone in my hometown that is a guitar teacher that also does banjo lessons on the side. His knowledge of music in general is borderline genius. He makes you feel like you are his only student and he caters your lesson to your needs and likes. He also takes the extra steps to help you learn how to actually play the banjo and not just memorize the songs. I highly recommend Jody and if you are computer challenged as I am please don’t let the fact that you don’t live in Atlanta keep you from using Jody. He is the real deal and I feel blessed that I found him and look forward to many more years of lessons with him.
