I recommend Jenna to all levels of learners!

I knew nothing about playing the guitar before my first lesson. She made me feel comfortable right away and was able to help me learn quickly. She also helped me with my singing at the same time. She let me pick the music I was interested in and gave me tips on how to learn at home too. She is also very nice and patient.
Thanks Jenna!

I love her style of teaching. Nothing is bad as long as it comes from the heart. Music is about passion and sharing. Now I can go on to share what I've learned with others. She taught me guitar, voice and songwriting. Thanks Jena

Steve S. Santa Barbara, CA

About Steve

I am a professional music teacher, and teach private one-on-one music lessons for Drums, Bass, Guitar (electric & Acoustic), Voice, and Trombone. Students are introduced to their instruments in a fun and understandable way. Technique, music theory, and reading are taught through song form, which creates a strong foundation and love for music. We are having fun, while getting the job done. I think that the key to music lessons is the fun and inspiration factor. I remember taking drum lessons from my first teacher who had this GIANT chrome drum set and it just made me want to go home and practice. My main goal with each lesson is to get "one nugget" that the student can walk away with. Either a reading tip, or a song form, or a lick…something tangible that makes them want to practice ...
