"Hilary is an amazing teacher! A brilliant banjo player herself, she is patient and super excited with your progress as a student. I've been taking lessons since 2015, first group and then private, and Hilary has been a truly inspiring teacher." Eva

I took several classes with Hilary at the Jalopy Theater. She is one of the best music teachers I have ever had. She's amazingly talented at the banjo, but is also very patient and encouraging as a teacher." Jed

"I happily commute an hour each way to learn from her. There are few people that you meet in life that have the kind of larger than life energy that she does.  If I could take lessons with Hilary every day, it still wouldn't be enough".- Brigid
