Student comments! Click for large file.

“I have been waiting to start playing real bluegrass with people for quite a while, and now I can.”

“This is so much more fun than sitting on the couch playing alone.”

“I wish I had been introduced to this format much earlier. Isolated music is nowhere near as fun as being with a group.”

“A masterful job at creating a safe environment for us to learn in. Everyone in my groups has led, played solos and sung a song.”

“I've never tried to learn by ear before & it was so much fun.”

“Through the class I got hooked up with a group of folks I love playing with, and we plan to continue to meet.”
