Introduction: My name is Jack Waugh and I'd love to work with you. I'm a professor of Jazz Guitar at Towson University and I've been successfully teaching students Jazz for over a decade. I'm all about making the lessons work for you and your goals as a student. Here’s some info about me as a teacher and musician: I've toured and performed at a multitude of venues (including venues in DC such as 930 club, Mid Atlantic Jazz Festival, and The Strathmore). I have a Bachelors degree in Jazz Studies from The New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York Cit, as well as years of experience teaching students of all ages and abilities. I teach a wide array of genres including: jazz, rock, pop, funk, blues, folk, country- and have extensive knowledge of music theory, advanced harmony, rhythm, ear training, improvisation, composition, as well as sound and sight reading development. Looking forward to teaching you!

Jack is a very supportive and experienced player/teacher. I see immediate improvements as Jack tailors the instruction for the way I hold and play the guitar. After a couple lessons I’m confident that I’ll be playing songs quickly. I’m glad to have Jack as part of my guitar learning experience!

Just had my first lesson with Jack and it was fantastic! He responded immediately when I reached out and has already given me multiple areas to work on to improve. He's very easy to learn from and not intimidating at all. I'm excited for our musical journey together!

If you’re looking to study Jazz (or any genre really) Jack is your guy! I’ve learned so much from him and improved insanely quickly to a point where I’m now able to express myself musically beyond what I though I’d be able to do. He has a deep knowledge of theory but always makes it easy to understand and relates it back to the emotion of music. Incredible teacher, I highly recommend him.
