I was lucky enough to do a few lessons with Jeremy before my schedule got out of hand and I had to cancel.. Jeremy is very knowledgable about music, great at teaching and I learned more from the few lessons with him than I have in years of trying on my own. Highly recommend picking up lessons with this guy - no matter what level you're at.Nov 10, 2019Verified
I have been playing the saxophone for over 20 years and have picked the guitar up a couple of years ago. I fumbled around with the instrument and tried to apply what I know of the sax to the guitar and have found myself obsessed with the world of new possibilities. I signed up for my first lesson with Jeremy and really liked his approach of listening to what interests me about playing the guitar. We talked about several new approaches to some ideas that I have gravitated to on my own and he has left me to try them out to see which path we should head down in the lessons to come. I like his way of relating the musical ideas through our conversation and am very much looking forward to our next lesson!Aug 3, 2018Verified
Jeremy is an excellent teacher with a wealth of knowledge and tips to share. He was able to help me piece together years worth of music theory in an hour. I would highly recommend him.Mar 24, 2018Verified
Jeremy is a superb teacher. After five lessons with him, I am playing jazz chord melody arrangements that I never dreamed I could execute. Jeremy explains complex musical ideas in language I can understand. When we're working on a song I not only learn how to play it but also what makes the song tick, and how I can apply that knowledge to other situations. He is patient, has a great sense of humor, and seems to know exactly what I need to learn next. I appreciate that he allows me to progress at my own pace and offers multiple techniques for achieving a particular playing goal so that I can find the approach that works best for me. I come away from each lesson fired up with new ideas that I'm eager to bring to the fretboard. I highly recommend Jeremy to anyone looking for a guitar teacher. Whether you're a novice or an experienced player, he'll help you take your playing to the next level and he'll make your guitar journey a fun ride!Aug 20, 2017Verified
Jeremy is an outstanding instructor. I had no experience with musical instruments whatsoever, and I have made great strides within a month of learning from Jeremy. He is very flexible with scheduling and teaching, is very friendly, and is an expert in his craft. I would recommend Jeremy to anyone who is considering learning the guitar.Jul 31, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Pricing starts at about $20 per lesson, and lessons are generally 30-50 minutes long depending on what the student is working on and their skill level. Discounts are given for pre-payment and purchasing several lessons at once. I make sure students leave the lesson with a clear plan for what to work on specifically both in the long and short term.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I have them describe their goals first of all, and then I assess their current skill level. From there I can start working on a plan to get them where they want to be. I try to tailor a student's lessons to match their musical tastes and preferences whenever possible, but I am always happy to introduce them to new musical ideas.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a degree in music from the University of Akron (Bachelor of Music), and I finished all my coursework but not my thesis for a Master's degree in music Education from Bowling Green State University. I have been teaching private lessons since 1993 and have a lot of experience with students of all levels.
