I like to have a conversation with the potential student about what their goals are. I believe in teaching the student to help them achieve thier own goals rather than telling them what to do! Then we have a free trial lesson and after that, if the student wants to continue, we schedule a weekly lesson time! It's very simple and all geared towards helping the student achieve their goals!
I enjoy seeing the progress students make and helping them do something that they are passionate about.
Jacob is patient and pays attention to technique detail.
Jacob is a patient and thorough teacher who makes sure you understand his lessons. His descriptive language is engaging and informative. He can teach to any level.
Jacob is an extraordinary educator, I have been working by his side on a few projects over the past few years and was completely impressed by his ability to explain simply very complicated concepts, as well as work with beginners to have a strong grasp of music and a whole lot of fun in the process! I am an Assistant Professor at Berklee College of Music, I have witnessed many teachers and I can say without a doubt, that joining Jacob Means studio, will be a wonderful decision any student will grow from and enjoy!
