Introduction: (Just wanted to mention that I'm only teaching video-chat sessions now, as I am immuno-suppressed - it works very well, 1st 30 minutes are free so you can see if it's a good fit 👍) Hello, and thank you for taking the time to view this! I have been playing guitar for most of my life and have been teaching music - from beginner, to very advanced levels - for over 25 years now. I love showing people how easy it is to learn to play, I'm very patient and I like to use each student's personal musical interests and preferences to teach. I don't have a set step-by-step approach; I structure each lesson specifically to each separate student, taking into account their unique musical goals, and how they like to learn. I want you to enjoy learning and playing guitar. I want you to feel that you're improving, not just that you're taking lessons. I'm happy to provide current student references upon request. Teaching music is the greatest job in the world, it's wonderful to help people learn a skill that relieves stress and brings joy into their lives. Playing guitar is easy! You can simply become as good as you want to be.

I have just started with Jacob and find that he checks all the boxes I had hoped for in an instructor to learn to play guitar. I am looking forward to our next lesson.

Jacob is a really fun guy to have teaching you the guitar. He adapts really well to what you’re interested in learning. I was using an app program for about 6-7 months before deciding a music teacher would help and I wasn’t wrong. Jacob has been adding to what I have already learned and giving a much more in-depth explanation of things than a non personalized app ever could. He has done a great job building off what I know, and showing me what direction I can take things. After my first lesson he provided me with great feed back and practice routines to work on before our following meeting. I booked a month out with him so far and will continue to work with him in the future. Five stars! Thanks Jake! I enjoy the heck out of your lessons.
