Jame Easteppe is a phenomenal guitarist and musician, as well as an incredibly talented, relatable, and compassionate instructor. I have known him for nearly a decade, during which time I've witnessed how he inspires students to not only practice and take pride in their musicianship, but to push themselves beyond their own expectations of their personal abilities and limitations. My personal experience with him took place at a different studio, at which he was easily the most highly-requested teacher, and continuously had a waiting list of prospective students; our entire lesson program expanded astronomically solely because of Mr. Easteppe. One of the most powerful attributes of Mr. Easteppe is his eagerness to improve his craft and abilities in order to become a more well–rounded musician and teacher. He can teach an array of styles (as well as music theory) in a way that's easy to understand at any age or skill level, exudes great patience and care, and provides amazing support when working with his students. I honestly cannot speak highly enough of him, both personally and professionally. Any student would be lucky to learn from him.
