Jason Y. Nashville, TN

Subjects Taught

Guitar, Music Theory

About Me

Master of Arts degree (concentration: Music Education)
Bachelor of Music degree (concentration: Jazz Guitar)

I have been teaching private guitar lessons for over a decade, catering to a very wide range of student age, skill levels, and musical interests.

I am currently authoring a guitar method book for Alfred Publishing.

*** Lesson Details ***
My overall philosophy is that a student should do more playing/practicing than listening to a teacher explain/demonstrate.

I teach ALL skill levels...from total beginners to advanced (college-level). I prefer beginners be at least 7 years old.

I teach ALL styles....rock, jazz, classical, country....anything with guitar.

My lessons are customized around the fundamental skills of music-learning as well as student interests.

Each lesson is different for each student.

I will provide all musical materials (you don't have to buy a book).

*** Studio Equipment ***
My studio is not a room in my home. It is a separate building from my home that I built with my own 2 hands.

I use it for teaching and recording. It is fully equipped with many amps and guitars.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Guitar and lesson materials. No amp

*** Specialties ***
jazz, classical guitar
