Rick Sparks (Reno, NV) is equally at home playing banjo, guitar, mandolin, dobro and pedal steel guitar, and singing either lead or harmony. He has developed a reputation as an outstanding teacher on all of his instruments, with over 30 students currently under his wing in his home base of Reno, NV — as well as traveling throughout the west and southwest presenting Wernick Method jam camps.

“Rick did a superb job of teaching a mixed group of mostly beginners (I am one) and intermediate musicians to jam.”
“Rick got us to make music together by the end of the first class–it seemed miraculous to me.”
“Rick is so patient and generous with his time and expertise.”
“Rick’s gentle yet persuasive nature is perfect for managing a jam class.”
“Great class, Great fun!”
“You know how to put people at ease!”
