About Me

I hold a Music and English degree from Hamline University, but that doesn't make me a good teacher. I've played professionally for over 25 years, have taught English as a Second Language, Hockey and Audio Engineering, taught people age 5 to 75, and have taught private music lessons full time in Linden Hills for the past 8 years €“ but this doesn't make me a good teacher. What makes me a good teacher is that I have an infectious love of music and a passionate commitment to helping people. I have owned my own home in Linden Hills for 7 years and I love living here and being a part of the community. You can find me taking advantage of so much that Lake Harriet has to offer: swimming, biking, walking, rollerblading, and of course taking in all the great concerts at the Bandshell.

*** Lesson Details ***
From the first lesson, my students learn, they grow, they feel good about themselves - and they get results. Whether adult, teenager or child, I find out what music inspires and I use this music to give access to learning regardless of level. Whether a Disney song, the Doors, or Debussy, I fuel your lesson with what lights you up. I am positive, attentive and also discerning. Quickly, I find out what learning style works best for my student; by ear, visually, or intellectually, and I spend the time to customize their materials and lesson plans to an extraordinary degree. If a student thrives with me being highly energized, or with me being more mellow, or if they have special needs, I'€™m able to adapt to what works best for my student. It is a joy and privilege to be a teacher, but especially a music teacher!

*** Studio Equipment ***
My favorite thing about my studio is that it's QUIET! Perhaps you know what it's like to have a lesson next to another lesson going on, or because of noise, you just can't hear yourself or concentrate. Another favorite thing is that it's right in the business district of Linden Hills. I have instruments, amps, laptop, stereo, mics...anything we need.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I often allow new students to use a loaner guitar of mine until they feel comfortable committing to purchasing their own. I help them find the right guitar for themselves by searching for used gear and accompanying them to the store. I offer music stands, guitar tuners until they purchase their own. I provide all audio files and written materials.

*** Specialties ***
I teach ALL styles. I most often teach students wanting to play and sing songs from pop, show tunes, alternative, country, rock, singer/songwriter and jazz standards. I specialize in songwriting and often my students create their own compositions regardless of level. Improvisation is also a key part of my teaching.

Jason S. Chaska, MN

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Songwriting

About Me

Music comes from our souls and is an incredibly passionate form of expression. When individuals perform for people, including a teacher, they put their confidence and abilities and imperfections out to be seen. That's why it is important for students to feel safe and confident in their instructor, something you will find in our teacher-student relationship.

Jason has been teaching acoustic, electric, and bass guitar for 8 years. Jason's passions lie in folk, blues, rock, and indie music, and he loves to share that passion with his students in an encouraging and patient environment. Communication is key in a learning environment to ensure that students are working and progressing toward their goals. He has given lessons to students from age 7 through 75, and understands that each student has a unique interest and skill set to be developed. Music would be pretty dull if everyone was the same, wouldn't it?

Jason has been a singer/songwriter out of the Twin Cities for the past 8 years and has played in venues all over the world. These include coffee shops, events, and churches in Minnesota and go as far as various establishments in Guatemala. His debut album was released in 2007 and he has been a part of numerous projects since that time. Jason has also had the privilege of taking intensive blues lessons with Michael May and vocal lessons with Helen Lapakko.

*** Lesson Details ***
Jason is a laid back, patient, flexible, and caring teacher. He has experience with and enjoys teaching all ages and abilities. He likes to guide students through material that they choose to work on, as long as it is within their ability. During his lessons, Jason will cover everything from the introductory basics, improving your technical abilities, ear training, theory, and improvisation. Time can also be taken to work through electric guitar basics involving amplifiers and effects and guitar maintenance.

None

*** Travel Equipment ***
Musical Materials, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Amp, Pedaboard, Metronome

*** Specialties ***
I prefer to teach people starting out in tablature, as I feel that they can more easily access songs in this method. I will, of course, teach them some basic note reading and the fretboard. I feel that learning chords and strumming is a great way to ensure that students feel success as they progress...as they can begin to play simple songs. I play all sorts of music myself, from rock to folk to blues.
