I am a long time professional guitar teacher in the Denver area. I have taught over 500 students of all ages within the last 20 years.
I have a lot of pride in my students' accomplishments and ability to make music, and love seeing them have successful performances.
I enjoy hearing my students play and improve over time. I also like sharing my love of music with other people.
Great teacher, very patient.
I have been taking lessons from Jeff for four years. He is an incredibly accomplished guitar player and is very knowledgeable of music theory. It would be hard to find an instructor with more experience, passion and patience.
I enjoy the music that is given to me to practice. Never get bored due to the varity that is given. What works for me the most is Jeff's flexibility with my busy schedule. He is a very talented guitar player and I appreciate the skills he shares with me.
I've taken guitar lessons from Jeff Gleason for many years. Jeff is extremely knowledgeable, professional and is able to explain theory and technique in very understandable terms. Jeff can teach many genres of music and I've had a great deal of fun going from one genre to another and learning very different techniques in the process. I've recommended Jeff to friends and family alike and would highly recommend Jeff for anyone wanting to take up playing the guitar.
I try to assess new students ability level, practice habits and musical interest to tailor lessons to their needs.
I have a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in classical guitar performance.
I have worked with students from ages 5-80, and every level of ability from total beginners to professional level college students.
Students need to have realistic goals regarding practice time; learning a musical instrument is a lifetime pursuit. There are no 'quick fixes,' no 'tricks,' just dedicated practice and a commitment to improvement.
