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!

JR is a warm, and hospitable instructor. Patient and encouraging really helped me gain some confident a really quickly with my playing. He was very accommodating with my schedule and charged a really fair price, honestly feels like a steal! Highly recommend him.

I would give Jeff ten stars if I could! He brings an impressive level of patience, good humor, and dedication to every one of our lessons. Jeff makes learning the guitar enjoyable and lighthearted and I am so grateful to be finally learning under his mentorship. It's also so convenient that he will make house visits. It is affordable, simple, fun and just the right amount of challenging every time we sit down together! Thanks again, Jeff!

I really like working with Jeff. He’s a great coach especially when I get a little down ahead and kind of pick me up and help me get back in my guitar groove
