"Austin is an excellent teacher.  He has the ability to break a skill component of playing the instrument into easy to understand components and then block them all together that results in new tool in the musicianship toolbox.  I’m looking forward to more experiences with Austin in the future."

-Lee Smith


​​"It was such a treat to have Austin provide my class with valuable music theory on bluegrass music. It filled a need I did not know I had for learning how to use the Pentatonic Scales for backing up singers and performing breaks. I now know ‘how they do that’. Now I just need to incorporate it into my practice. Austin is an extremely knowledgeable and patient instructor"

-Therese Christie

"As a veteran mandolin/ fiddle player and a teacher (retired), I appreciate your careful, logical, clear and enthusiastic instruction. As a lifelong "ear" musician, my theory background is spotty. These videos will help me with improvisation”


“Austin offers a unique combination of excellence in virtuosity, teaching, and performance in many different styles of playing. As a long-time player, I was surprised at how many new techniques for practicing and jamming that I learned from him in a few group classes. His classes were engaging and fun, and I could apply what I learned immediately.”
