Introduction: (Just wanted to mention that I'm only teaching video-chat sessions now, as there is a pandemic, and I am immuno-suppressed - it works very well!) 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 17 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.

Guitar Lessons

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.

Guitar Lessons

Jacob is a wonderful teacher! He is patient, knowledgeable, and fun to be around. He customizes the lessons to my interest, and always sent me the tabs/videos timely so that I can practice during the week. I would highly recommend Jacob to everyone, no matter what level you are at.

Guitar Lessons

I recently started guitar lessons with Jacob. I've tried to self-teach multiple times in the past but decided I needed a professional to get me beyond the walls I always hit. Jacob responded to my query quickly & got me started with a program that he is customizing to my goals. I appeciate that at the beginning & end of each lesson he confirms my comfort level & that he is matching the lessons to my goals. In addition to keeping the lessons fun, Jacob has been very responsive when I've had questions between lessons.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My rates are: $40 for 30 minute lessons. $55 for 45 minutes. $70/hour If any student ever found the 1st lesson to be unsatisfactory for any reason, they would not be charged. This has yet to happen, but I would only feel comfortable taking your money if you were happy with your session.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Once we establish a day and time that will accommodate the student's schedule, I simply try to make them feel as comfortable as possible. I really believe that learning and playing guitar should be fun, that it's not as difficult as a lot of people think, and that it is a skill that can be used for the rest of one's life. Playing the guitar really does add a lot of joy, and remove a ton of stress from day-to-day living.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have many many years of professional and private music lessons from some of the most amazing players. When I lived in Southern California I studied under a very noteworthy guitar professional, he tours the world performing with many big-name acts, and performs on television shows regularly. I also worked as his guitar-tech while living in CA.
