What folks are saying...

"You are an amazing teacher, Maggie! This class was so well-organized and fun. I have tons to work on. Thanks for getting me through the winter! "

"This was the most well prepared class I have ever taken. I really enjoyed it."

"You are one of the best music teachers I have ever had and I've been studying music since I was 10. I really want to make banjo my primary instrument and have been struggling for a long time on my own trying to figure it out. Even after one week of class I have made a major amount of progress that's inspired me to keep going. Thank you so much!"

"Great class, I’d recommend another to students n friends. Thanks"
