Pickup Music has been an awesome resource thus far. I love the lessons from young players who are at the forefront of contemporary music. The Master Classes are definitely my favorite as they have a clear plan of study and a logical progression behind them.

I usually wouldn’t take the time to write, but Pickup is worth taking a few seconds. I can’t say enough positive things about the content and how enjoyable it is to use. I’ve recommended the service to my friends already.
