About this pro

My teaching approach: As a teacher, musician, writer, guitar player, and performer, Jeff is extremely passionate. He is committed to giving his best at all times. He is willing to teach and share his knowledge and guide other like minded individuals who are committed to achieving their guitar playing and musical goals. He is currently working with students of all ages and levels of playing. Jeff is as sincere in the progress of his students as he is to the progress of his own growth as a musician, songwriter, and performer. My influences are: Jeff began playing guitar at the age of 12. He was greatly influenced by heavy metal groups such as Metallica, Megadeth, Black Sabbath, Slayer, Kyuss, and Carcass to name a few. He later fell in love with artists like Stevie Ray Vaughn, Cream, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix, Iron Butterfly, and many other great 70's rock and blues influenced groups. Some of Jeff's favorite current artists are Queens Of The Stone Age, Wolfmother, Skindred, Avenged Sevenfold, Sword, Mastadon, and System Of A Down.My guitar lessons take place in: The teacher's studioGuitar lessons typically take place on these days and hours: Monday, Tuesday, & Wednesday.

Our objective is not to change your personality or character but rather to enhance it. This is achieved by working together to identify your guitar playing goals, eliminating your weaknesses & focusing on your strengths. We will create a customized lesson plan that will help you achieve your goals. With modern technology there are many great tools for learning online or on your own, but none of these compare to having your own teacher guiding, inspiring you & answering your questions in real time. 'The Way Of Guitar'™ is here for you!A guitar lesson with me might entail the following: Beginners Learning to play guitar is not an easy task, but the rewards are well worth the effort! From one-on-one lessons to classes of fifteen (15) students, I have experience dealing with all levels of students. I will help you to make learning a positive experience with easy to understand explanations, lesson plans & instruction tailored for a student which has no experience playing guitar, or any instrument for that matter. We will work quickly to familiarize you to the instrument, learning technique, basic theory, how to read tab & chord frames, rhythm, scales, chords & simplified songs in styles of music that influence you. I take time paying attention to the details of your playing & retention of material, ensuring that you're not going to be haunted by any bad habits that can inhibit your progress for years to come. I have lesson plans that will vastly increase your progress while focusing on the essentials needed to begin playing guitar. Let's get started! Intermediate "Where do I go next?" This's the most common question. You have a few scales down, learned some songs on YouTube & have been trying to learn on your own. You've had some luck but you're not happy with the speed of your progress and you need direction. It's one thing to know some scale patterns and chords, and it's another to know how and when to use them. Does the neck still seem like a crazy maze or a cosmic mystery to you? I can help you to demystify! We'll fill in the gaps covering all aspects of your playing, theory, technique, improvisation, scales, lead, and chords to list a few topics covered. We'll build your ear and can even delve into songwriting & recording if that's a passion of yours! Let me know where you're at. Advanced You're a proficient guitar player and other musicians look up to you, maybe you're a solo artist or in a band. But you know that you can take your playing even further! Maybe you're looking for more inspiration, a new approach to your current technique, or there's a style outside your own that you want to explore? You feel that there's something missing, that you're capable of much more. You need the person that can help you reach your fullest potential. Songwriting, recording, creating better solos, playing super clean at high volumes, picking faster and more precise, sweeps, advanced improvisation, deeper theory knowledge, aural skills, tone control, guitar setup, intensified practice programs…the possibilities are endless! Let's see where we can take you.The qualities I look for in an ideal guitar student might include the following: Passionate, prepared, and willing to put the time in.
