Rated 5 out of 5 by BeginnerAdultPiano Never imagined how great of an experience it would be!
I started playing piano in January and took about 10 lessons in an instructors home. For convenience, I looked into in home lessons and found TakeLessons.com, which led me to Jason. While I was still learning the basics, Jason immediately challenged me beyond what I thought I was going to be capable of and just when I would think I am not getting this, he would change it up and give me exactly the lesson I needed! While it is an entirely different teaching method than what I was use to, I have found that my skill level has significantly improved! I am still a beginner, but with Jason's leadership, I know I will continue to grow! He provides variety, has amazing technical equipment/software for delivering the lessons, is very patient, yet pushy in a good way, provides lots of materials to practice on your own, and always leaves you feeling good about your desire to play and enjoy music, no matter what your skill level is. And he is very prompt and organized and flexible. All around he is a true professional that I would recommend to anyone! I should also note that while his style of music may seem to be an extreme mismatch from yours, (I love country, classical, and soft rock), he has such a love and appreciation of music, that he makes it feel as if he wrote the songs that I want to learn to play as he is teaching them to me!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mandel Great teacher!
He's not only a great teacher but an amazing guitarist as well. I've been taking lessons from him for a couple of years now. He truly has a deep passion for music and wants to be able to share that same passion with others. He's very patient and focused on helping you develop as a musician. He's very well organized, setting up lesson plans dedicated to your needs whether it's basic chords, scales, songs or theory. I can't ask for a better teacher.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Whitney22 HE IS AWESOME
I absolutely adored every second with Jason. Even though I was a complete novice, Jason was patient and created a very friendly environment. He encouraged me to choose the lesson plan. Also, knowing that the banjo is typically understood as a blue-grass and southern sound, he opened my ears to Sabbath on the banjo which blew me away and opened the doors to banjo-heavy metal style. He is very versatile and a kick-butt musician. The man can do anything. He is understanding, fun, and encouraging. He never gave-up on me, always made me feel talented and kept me motivated. I will continue to take lessons from Jason. From never touching an instrument before in my life to jamming T. Rex on the banjo in just a month, shows Jason is one great teacher. YOU ROCK!!

Jason's lessons are an effective mix of guitar fundamentals, music theory, and a variety of fun songs that are tailored to the individual student. He has a patient and laid-back approach that allows you to relax and absorb the lesson.Scott Lovelace

Rated 5 out of 5 by CaylaS Jason is an excellent instructor! He is great at making beginners feel comfortable with the instrument and with moving at your own pace. He is always encouraging, available to help and easy going. I would definitely recommend him to anyone just starting out!
