About this pro

Music has always played a very big part of my life. Music has brought me much joy, great friends, opportunities to travel and life-changing experiences turned beautiful memories. The guitar is my instrument of choice and in many ways is an extension of myself. 

I teach electric and acoustic guitar to students of all levels, backgrounds and styles. I love inspiring musical sparks and opening doors to the world of music through the guitar!

I also offer video lessons to students around the globe!

    I've been working with Jake for about a year and a half, his lessons have been great for developing both a playing technique for and an understanding of the music I'm pursuing. His lessons are always a good opportunity to troubleshoot areas of improvement, get input on playing/practicing, and to just learn new music. I think Jake's instruction would benefit players of a variety of experience and interests.

    Jake is an incredible teacher. I have learned a lot from him. A true natural at helping his students reach their goals and opening new possibilities!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Every student is different, but with beginning students I like to go over the names of the strings, how to hold the instrument, how to play with a pick and/or fingerstyle. With intermediate and advanced students I can go in depth on topics such as advanced harmony, melodic and chordal improvisation, jazz theory and songwriting.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have been teaching private guitar lessons for years, as well as taught improvisation classes and ran student ensembles at music camps/workshops and worked with rhythm sections at middle and high schools.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$40 for 1 hour lesson. Discount available if you buy multiple lessons up front.

**open for negotiation depending on circumstances**

How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching guitar lessons in middle school to both students and teachers after school. Eventually I branched out and stated teaching more private lessons and well as music workshops at schools.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of all ages from all levels.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

When looking for a teacher, you want someone who will cater to your specific needs. Talk to them and have them help you create a plan to get you the information you need to succeed. it is also important to know the teacher can demonstrate the concepts, not just explain them. I have a Youtube video of my band in my bio so you can see if I know what I'm talking about or not!

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Think about the amount of time you will put in to practicing as well as how seriously you want to take music. There are levels to music, just like anything else. I will help you create an individual plan for your growth at your own pace.
