From Jack Roy, Charlottesvile, VA- A blues guitarist only for much of his life and founder of The Biscuit Rollers, a Virginia Regional Champion blues group (now ceased):
"As a 50 year old guitarist, I have always wanted to be able to sing as I played. I have tried several times, used books and tapes to help with no success. Within the first 2 months with Sheridan I accomplished my first open mic, a huge milestone for me. He has taken the time to diagnosis the areas that I needed to improve and has setup a strategic way of developing my voice in the genre of music that I have an interest in. I thought I would never be able to sing, but I am a believer now... I rarely give a 5 star rating to anyone, but Sheridan deserves it!!"
From camper Rod Brown at RiverTunes Camp 2014
"At RiverTunes this past week, Sheridan Malone taught me about breath support in singing. Seems like it was a case of the right instructor appearing when the student was (finally) ready. I've been told I needed to work on breath support since high school choir, back in 1970. I've been told the same thing countless times since, and I believed it was true, but somehow was having trouble internalizing the idea. Sheridan is the first person who ever pointed out the pleasure, and the actual **fun** of singing with good breath support. What a revelation! It's no longer a duty, and I'm loving it! Thank you Sheridan! Thank you Rivertunes." - Rod Brown
