  • Guitar Lessons

    (1 reviews)

    I teach guitar to all ages and skill levels. There is always room to grow in what we love; learn to connect better with the music you love, and have a really good time playing guitar. I teach all facets of technique, as well as music theory, composition, and many different styles, including jazz, classical, rock, bluegrass, country, reggae, blues, heavy metal and more. My rates are $18 a half hour at Spencers Music Room in Olathe, or $40 an hour in your home. I am a Senior at the Conservatory of Music at UMKC. I have trained with Doug Neidt in classical guitar and Kansas City jazz guitarists, Rod Fleeman and Danny Embry, in jazz guitar. I have also studied under alto sax jazz players, Dan Thomas and Bobby Watson. I studied composition with James Mobberly and Chen Yi.

  • Guitar, Mandolin & Music Lessons

    (4 reviews)

    When it comes to teaching private music lessons, I am a laid-back teacher, but I still have high expectations for each student. I really do not have a set curriculum because each student wants to learn something different. Whatever a student's avenue that they want to take, I am confident the student will have that much more knowledge before they had started.

  • Guitar, Music Theory, & Improvisation Lessons

    (2 reviews)

    I teach guitar, music theory, and improvisation as applied to all instruments. The concepts of music can be simple to understand when explained well. The principles behind music are what make music function in the format it is often labeled. If you tried to learn music before and felt confused or frustrated, you were probably taught by someone who didn't fully understand themselves how to teach a basic foundation of key concepts to follow. Upon graduating Musicians Institute, I was awarded the title of outstanding guitarist of the year and was offered a teaching position. I then taught, wrote curriculum, and continued developing my own teaching principles for many years after that. I have teaching titles on Hal Leonard Publishing, and I also operate the Jazz Guitar Society website, which features some of the world's best-working industry musicians in the various sub-genres of improvisational music. I also currently write for film and TV, and if you have watched anything from SpongeBob to Mad Men and beyond, there is a good chance that you have heard my stuff. Thank you for visiting my page. I look forward to hearing where you would like to go with your music pursuits! See more at my personal site on the business tab.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Jarrod Stephenson

I teach students of all ages, and all genres of music. My students also get back what they put into it. The more they practice, the faster they grow as players and as musicians.

Jarrod Stephenson had been honored with a Greensburg Guitar Scholarship for his studies. His interest in jazz led him to study with the renowned jazz guitarist, Rod Fleeman. In 2006, Jarrod received his Bachelor's Degree in guitar performance, and then later turned on to the art form of flamenco. In 2012, he co-founded the modern Flamenco group "De los Barrios", performing throughout the Midwest and accompanying flamenco classes with Kansas City Ballet.

The best project that I have been involved with is teaching, giving my students the ability to make a career in music by either performing or going to college to pursue music.

Jarrod has been teaching every genre of music since 2002. He has acquired his teaching style through impeccable technique, music history, and music theory, and through his numerous years of studying with various teachers. Grab the opportunity now, while he teaches privately out of his house in Kansas City, or online via Skype.
