Martin's students say:
"Martin taught me how to play the banjo in a jam situation and how to improvise and as he says, "make my own music". It was a life-changing realization."
"Martin is very patient, very knowledgeable and always makes you feel like you can do anything."
"Without Martin's support and teaching, I would never have played in public. Now I can!"
"A veteran musician told me that I should never try and sing, as I did not have a singing voice. Martin within less than 10 minutes proved to me that not only could I sing, but had me singing a song in key and on pitch with only my bass."
"Martin always made sure you understood a concept. If you didn't get it right away during class, he would spend one on one time to make sure you did. Very passionate about you learning."
