I believe that life is a story that each of us is telling with each day. I am drawn to the idea of working hard to help other people tell the best story possible and I believe that music is one medium through which I can do that. I know that music has made me a better listener, communicator, thinker, feeler, and developed many other indispensable skills in me. I want to use music to help others thrive. My philosophy is to contextualize lessons to each student's goals and needs so the musical journey is as unique as the person traveling. I have been playing instruments for 15+ years and teaching for 7, both as a private instructor and as a music leader in a church setting. I have a B.A. in Music from the University of Northwestern-St. Paul where I majored in cello. I am excited to connect!
I love getting to know students and helping them acheive their goals! I believe in holistic growth beyond just making music. I see lessons as an opportunity for both the student and myself to continue to get better musically and otherwise!
Jared is great! Highly recommend his personable and professional approach to quality teaching
Jared has adapted my lessons brilliantly to work well for me as an adult student with particular interest. Excellent lessons full of technique, history, context and more.
Jared is a wonderful teacher. Very patient, kind and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend Jared for Cello lessons....I actually have 😊
Jared teaches our daughter both cello and ukulele. He has also given my husband some guitar lessons. He is professional, genuine, and works flexibly with our schedule. He works hard to help our daughter do her best in a way that resonates with her. She enjoys her lessons with Jared and has really progressed in her musicianship with him as her teacher.
