Jeffrey Keefer is a versatile and intuitive musician who gives his students amazing tools to play music and enjoy playing the music they love, right from the very start! I have wanted to be able to play the piano and the guitar my entire life. My parents paid good money for 'classical style' lessons for me when I was very young, but I never felt that I was successful in my early lessons as a child. As a result of these early lessons, I even lost some of my passion for the instruments because the lessons were such dull, sad, drudgery. Now that I am older, much older, I have even less patience for the "Hickory Dickory Dock" style songs that early learners are often limited to. Jeffrey's lessons are active and engaging and have practical applications for the real world of music today. I am learning to play music that I truly love after only a few lessons! Jeffrey provides the right tools to play fun music, right now. He also supports this knowledge with the important essentials for long term musicianship. I come from a family where all of my siblings were classically trained musicians (I was the only 'undisciplined one'). My sisters and brothers conceded in conversations over the years that music would have been much more of a joy for them if they could have learned by a 'Jeffrey Keefer' style method. For me, the desired result of these lessons is to play music and build valuable skills that enable me to play, right away. I am so jazzed about practicing every day and I can't wait to learn more at the next lesson. Jeffrey Keefer's teaching method has been a breakthrough for me after years of believing that I just wasn't musically 'gifted'. Now, I play!
