Introduction: I am someone who specializes in teaching. So often a guitar teacher will be a performing musician and teaching is just something done on the side for extra income. For me, teaching is the thing! I have my full focus on making you a better guitarist. Another unique trait of mine: I teach the instrument by teaching specific songs, of your choosing. So many teachers pour so much effort into theory for weeks or months on end, and after all of that, you still don't know how to play any real music. I've heard this horror story over and over. The reality is that music theory will naturally force its way into the lessons but only when you understand enough to ask specific questions. A third quality I possess is that, if you prefer, I come to your location. I have found this to be a pretty rare service. I also have guitars that I lend out when a person is unsure about making a 'full-on' commitment, so that, after four lessons, a more sure decision can be reached. I most like seeing my students put their effort into playing and overcome things that once hindered them. I am privileged to see this on a regular basis!

Jeff is very knowledgeable and skilled in his work! Not to mention very flexible with a wacky work schedule. Lessons have been fun, and definitely recommend.

Guitar Lessons

Jeff is a great guitar teacher. My wife couldn’t understand English but she could feel Jeff’s passion when he is teaching our son. If my son still can’t get involved in guitar, it is my son’s fault. We will stop his guitar lesson. Fortunately, with Jeff’s guidance, my son gradually catches guitar. We really appreciate Jeff’s help. Thank you!!!

Guitar Lessons

I only have had one lesson so far but I think Jeff is a great teacher. He is very patient, competent, and very encouraging. I felt that he was able to cover a lot of territory for a first lesson, and was skillful in his method of teaching. Jeff is a true professional and I look forward to working with him to renew my love of guitar.

Guitar Lessons

We have only had one lesson, but Jeff was great. He was very enthusiastic and the kids responded well to him. He did preparation before coming to get us on with the kids would like. He is very well organized and I can tell that we will use him for a while.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I have two different prices that I charge: the rates for a half hour or full hour per week at your location. The full pricing cannot be shown on the quote segment of this site.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I prefer to have an actual conversation with them, because there are so many things that cannot be communicated very well via texting. I like to explain the way that I teach, so that you understand the expectations.

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

    I have a background in piano, violin, mandolin, guitar, and with touring and performing live. I have been a worship leader for over 25 years.
