About this pro

I have been teaching music privately in the OKC area for over 15 years. I teach guitar, harmonica, bass, ukulele, drums, vocals, songwriting, performance, percussion, lap steel and music theory. I have a broad expanse of knowledge in all genres of music.My motto is: I can take you from "I can't" to "I can!". Your goals are my dedication.And MY goal is to make practice FUN!I don't have a set curriculum, but rather develop a course of study based on the individual student's goals and current skill level. I am a firm believer in "playing" music - so I try to make it as much fun as possible. I have brought many people from "I can't play" to "I can" so I am fairly sure I can help you meet your musical goals. Give a call anytime so we can discuss your situation further and set an appointment

    Jesse is a lifelong musician with incredible knowledge of all aspects of playing and performing guitar and other instruments. Great vocal coach as well. He's still an active musician and can help you with almost any kind of music lessons. Highly recommended.

FAQs


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

I do not have a set curriculum, but rather craft a lesson plan around your individual needs; your goals and skill level. We make learning and practice as fun as we possibly can while maintaining our focus on acheivement and improvement. 


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

I am the son of professional musicians on both sides - mom & dad. My father was a guitar teacher his entire life. I have been playing, professionally for over 50 years. I have also been a singer-songwriter for many years and have done quite a bit of recording as well as performing. I run the most friendly and performance oriented Open Mic in the OKC area!

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A favorite Student had a wonderful breakthough! They reached a plateau they had been seeking for a while! Very rewarding to see the smile on their face!


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

Avoid the 'cookie cutter' cheap guys. A Music Lesson cannot be taught to a serious adult in a half hour! If they do not help to make your practice FUN! then move on!
They should understand - and be able to communicate - the How and Why as well as the 'What' of playing or singing.
If they do/have not performed for extended periods of their life, they are simply not qualified to teach. This is much more important than 'training'.  Seek out someone you like! 


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

What are my goals? Be very specific. "I want to play for my kids."  "I want to get good enough to play open mics." "I want to be a professional." Etc.  
Also 'How do I learn?' (By watching? By seeing it written down? By hearing? By doing? Etc.) And be sure to communicate this to your teacher the very first day!  
How much TIME am I willing to devote? (Any less than 30-40 minutes a day - every day - is just not going to get it.) More is better - to a point! Practic is KEY. It is the one thing that the instructor CANNOT do FOR you! YOU must find the time and the inspiration.
Also, think of this as a minimum of 3 month/90 day COMMITMENT. Find an instrument that you Love and want to be with everyday! And music that 'turns you on'.  
Also "How 'technical' do I want to get? More or less 'Theory'.  And "Will this be FUN and exciting!
Will I look forward to Lessons and Practicing everyday?"
