About Jimmy

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will bring my own guitar and amp

*** Specialties ***
I am fluent in every possible style. At some point I have performed in every type of band and expose my students to many different styles and techniques. I recently got off tour with a country band from Nashville, but have performed jazz, metal, rock, blues, soul, classical, fusion. I specialize in those students who really want to put in the time to seriously learn their instrument, but if you want to have fun just playing by the campfire that's cool too. I'm cool, laid back and love a good laugh. I have taught hundreds of students on all levels and styles over the years and to answer your question yes anyone can play if they invest the time needed to learn and yes you are gonna have clumsy ...

After a month studying under Jimmy my guitar skills have skyrocketed. I didn't realize how much I was stuck on a plateau until I compare recordings from a month ago. Jimmy has assisted me in reaching new levels of lead guitar and knowledge of theory so that I am now playing lead roles and improvising beyond what I thought capable. I have the technique, skills and self confidence to take lead with my band, and my fellow band members have all asked what my secret has been in my phrasing and solo's; the secret is simple a great instructor and structured practice. Now my practice time is much more productive. Jimmy really understands how to custom teach and improve weaknesses I was unable to even understand without his help. Thanks Jimmy for helping me reach new goals and my true potential.

After 2 lessons with Jimmy I have improved on my overall technique and cleaning up my tones as well increased speed; more progress than past two months. Jimmy is extremely knowledgeable and takes you to the next level. If you listen to his instruction and do the practice time you will improve. I'll be so much more prepared for my next gig. Thanks Jimmy!

Ben U. Columbus, OH

Throughout my studies of theory and harmony, I realized how valuable it is to learn the basics of the guitar. I studied the guitar independently to learn the fingerings of the most useful chords. Students anxious to be able to play a song right off the bat are often pleased to discover that they can play through a whole song using only two or three chords. The guitar provides students with endless possibilities; they can experiment with different rhythms, never having to play a song the same way twice.

I grew up listening to classical music; I remember listening to a Mozart and a Grieg tape over and over again. By high school, I was interested in more recent popular music that carried on in the same tradition of greatness. Andrew Lloyd Webber first caught my attention. From there, I listened to the music of the ‘60s and became quite knowledgeable in the British Invasion. My ear for this type of music allows me to teach the guitar and provide students with an ample ...

I have been taking Latin lessons with Ben for some time and am very pleased with his method. I have never studied Latin before, so we began from scratch, using a lesson plan built by Ben with the help of college-level textbooks. Ben has been very diligent and disciplined in building demanding but realistic lesson plans every week, as well as in creating thorough and helpful practice exercises. On top of this Ben is a polite, pleasant and accommodating fellow, open to questions and suggestions. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to study Latin.

Piano · In studio
I was very interested in piano when I was in college, but I didn't have any background in piano. I took several piano lessons from Ben. He was always very patient and detailed in explanations. He also incorporated music theory to help me improve my understanding of music. I wanted to learn Canon in D, but it was too hard for me. Ben rewrote Canon in D to make it easy enough for me to play. After a few lessons, I learned the whole music!

Ben is also qualified in GMAT training and proofreading. Ben helped me with GMAT grammar, readings, and critical reasoning. He was exceptional in grammar! For the proofreading, he went point by point and gave valuable suggestions. He explained every correction to me to make sure I understood all of them.
