About this pro

Custom electric/acoustic guitar lessons planned according to the kinds of music the student wants to learn to play, and according to the students prior experience. I have been playing over half my life and I am 22 years old. I am also in a successful band and have experience playing live shows. I think I could appeal to students of all ages, especially young future rockers! I have a room in a studio as well as a practice room at my house with plenty of equipment. I cover pretty much all genres, from the heaviest of metal to modern pop. One important thing I’ve discovered over my years of teaching is that students More efficiently learn when the student enjoys what they’re working on. I also specialize in specific techniques such as sweep picking, multi-finger tapping

Call/Text 6823097678 The most enjoyable part of being a guitar teacher is seeing a student come back for the next lesson being able to play something they couldn't play the previous lesson. It is a great feeling knowing that my students are making progress

  • Adam

    Awesome instructor. Really knows everything about the guitar. I just started playing and he was my first lesson. Definitely going back 5 out of 5 for me.

  • JD

    I like Jordan’s ability to learn the kind of music that I wanted to learn so quickly, and then immediately teaches me whatever song I want to learn. He makes his lessons fun and enjoyable for me. He’s showed me so many things and after a year of lessons I can play the guitar better than i ever thought I’d be able to! Looking forward to the advanced lessons soon!!



FAQs


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

!!CALL/TEXT 6823097678!! When meeting with a new student for the first lesson, I would first introduce myself and ask what kind of music the student would like to be able to play in the future as well as what inspired them to want tolearn how to play guitar in the first place. Next I would ask them to give me a demonstration (if possible) so I can see where the student is at skill/experience wise. If a new student comes with no experience I would start with teaching the student proper posture, the names of the strings on a guitar, a brief overview of the anatomy of guitars, and explain the musical alphabet, and maybe a simple 3 chord progression or simple scale. When meeting a new student who wants advanced or intermediate lessons, I would ask the same initial questions and quiz them on necessary info and theory that they may not know. I customize lessons for intermediate students and advanced students based on what genres, styles, and techniques they would like to learn because I believe a something they enjoy. After finding out this information I would then draft a lesson plan according to the specific student's preferences and ability. 


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

I am in a successful band, so I have plenty experience playing live in front of large audiences, and have been playing gutar for 12 years (over half of my life). I began taking private lessons at the age of 10 and after surpassing my teacher 4 years after beginning my lessons I was then taught how to properly teach guitar, as well as taking 3 more years of advanced lessons. I began giving beginner and intermediate lessons shortly after finishing my advanced lessons in 2011. A few years later I began teaching advancd lessons to some of my long time students and have been keeping it going ever since.


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

Contact me at 6823097678 I charge 30-35$ for at least an hour if the student comes to my residence in SW Arlington. I also work at Sounds Good School of Music and rates vary for lessons at my personal studio. I am willing to come to my students within a 25-30 mile range, but I will have to charge a bit more depending on how far away the location is. If a student can not quite afford the rates I am willing to be somewhat flexible on the price. I believe anybody that truly wants to learn how to play an instrument should be able to, so if you are a serious student we will make it work!!


How did you get started teaching?

I got started teaching whenever I surpassed my original guitar instructor. After finishing lessons with him, he taught me specifically how to properly teach guitar, and I have been teaching consistently since 2011.


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with many students from all ranges of difficulty. I have experience teaching music theory, acoustic guitar, and stlyles like blues/rock guitar, progressive rock, progressive metal, funk, etc. My lessons are customized according to the student's specific goals, experience, and interests. I believe you will not live up to your full potential if you do not enjoy whatever it is you are doing.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The last show I played with my band Lightfall was great, it sold out! I had a lot of fun meeting succesful artists and haveing a good time with my bandmates after a successful performance. www.facebook.com/lightfall


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

I would advise the potential student to really think about if he/she really wants to learn guitar and consider the investment of time and money. Consider if you really want to be a guitarist, and I really hope people thinking of taking lessons become great guitarists!


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

A student should think of what their goals and interests are regarding learning guitar. Ask if it is really worth the investment of time and money, and what kind of guitarist you want to be!
