I am a bass player who has always played guitar here and there but nothing too serious, and about a year ago decided I really want to know the fundשmentals of guitar. A friend recommended Jacob Light, whom I've heard play before in local bands, and I decided to take the chance. I wasn't dissapointed to say the least. Jacob is a really down to earth guy who immediately understood my musical style and focused mainly on what I wanted to know, unlike other teachers I've had experience with. Even so, he knew what subjects to insist I learn, like improvisation. and scales. all this was done in a friendly, calm, cool yet persistent atmosphere which is just the right blend for learning, in my opinion.Soon enough I started feeling I really understand guitar, and this new kno'ledge even helped me with my bass guitar playing. Ive been taking guitar lessons with Jacon for 6 months and the only downdise I can think of is the fact he moved to California, otherwise I would have still take lessons from him, without a doubt.

My kids absolutely adore Jeremy. He's incredibly effective at teaching kiddos. He finds out what what music they love and within a few lessons they're playing songs you never imagined possible. His passion for music is infectious. We're huge fans of his teaching and he's a great person too.

I took guitar lessons from Nick Stargu for about 4 years. He is a fantastic teacher. He is very patient and understanding as he takes his time to ensure his students are grasping each lesson. I found that Nick is extremely knowledgable in many styles of music; he truly is an amazing musician! It is clear that his passion is to teach his students how to not only create music to express themselves, but understand the theology behind it. Nick is very professional, and I highly recommend him!

  • Berkeley, CA 94702


I create a unique curriculum for each of my students based on their individual interests and needs. All of my students get a strong base in practical theory, technique, and rhythmic awareness. I teach musical styles ranging from pop, jazz, and blues to rock, folk, and funk. Students are encouraged, but not required to read music. My holistic approach to teaching ensures that students get the theory, technique, musical awareness, and aural development necessary to become a strong musician. My students learn to fix and adjust their own instruments and, when applicable, how to use various electronic effects, such as reverb, delay, distortion, etc. I encourage a productive practice routine, and help students organize their time while working on new materials and just playing for fun. Whether you or your child have never played guitar or bass, or you have been playing for years and want to keep learning, I will help you gain knowledge and fulfillment from music!
