I am a musician in the scene! I play out once a week at least and have been for the last three years or so. I try to keep myself educated in many forms of music but guitar is my FORTE (lol); I've won the 2012 ShredKing contest sponsored by local venue The Intersection and received multiple reviews for my playing in local band Flood the Desert!
*** Lesson Details ***
Guitar is a wonderfully versatile instrument that anyone can learn to have a great time with! Whether you just want 3 chords for a campfire jam session or the full-on sweep picking, tapping, and harmonics of more intense compositions I can certainly help you achieve your goals. I've been playing for 10 years and have plenty of live experience.
I believe everyone has the power to be a great singer! The fundamentals of a powerful voice are easy to learn, but difficult to master, but my "casual singing" approach is a fun way to encourage using the most exercised part of our voice: the part we speak with! Learn everything from traditional warm-ups to those of silly noises as well as learning physical and mental techniques for performing more elaborate pieces.
I have a flexible curriculum based on student preference, familiarity, and ability level and each topic can be expanded on to create great well-balanced performers.
I also teach piano and bass at a variety of skill levels!
*** Specialties ***
My "forte" is the guitar. I can teach all the way up to advanced two-handed techniques and sweep-flat-economy-etc. picking. I also have had extensive music theory training and application as well as a classical singing background.

Hey there! I'm excited you dropped by my profile. I'm even more excited that you are thinking about taking music lessons or are planning on giving the gift of music lessons to a loved one. A little bit about me so you can understand how my teaching benefits my students: I went to DePaul University in Chicago,IL and studied Music (voice) and Religious Studies. I have been teaching guitar and piano lessons professionally for three years, however, I've been teaching on and off again for over ten. Through that time I've taught diverse groups of people, all with different skill levels. No matter where you are on your musical journey or who you are, I can help get you where you want to go!I also have extensive experience as a professionally touring musician. I currently front and manage my band The Northern Skies. If you are looking to start playing with a band, professionally or otherwise, I can help you on that path. Remember: it doesn't matter what skill level you are now! I can help you get there!
*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that every lesson should be fun and comfortable! Depending on the students age and skill level, I pick out books that work for each student, and also ask the student to bring in a piece that they want to work on. Maybe we can learn that new radio hit or the oldie but a goodie that you've been wanting to learn for years! However, learning from books or internet videos alone do not offer the kind of one on one attention students need while learning an instrument. I have the experience needed and a unique curriculum that is based off of understanding the student's musical goals. For beginners, I teach basic techniques and chords through easy songs to get the student playing as soon as possible.Learning music has to be fun! I am a very laid back and believe that learning music involves good communication, having an open mind, and the desire to have fun and LEARN! So I can be very laid back while interacting with students and their families. However, learning to play an instrument takes a lifetime of practice. Even the pros practice every day! Therefore, practice is a vital part of taking lessons and something I take very seriously. I hope you will choose me as your music teacher!

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe that music lessons should be interesting and fun! My experiences have taught me that we play our instruments not just as a hobby, but to further our growth as individuals. While studying with me, one can expect to learn dedication and discipline in a comfortable and nurturing environment. I aim to teach my students the music that inspired them to pick up the instrument. I use a variety of different method books and instructional tools for my students. After the first few months of instruction, a student can expect to have their knowledge of the instrument furthered quite considerably. They will have the basics mastered, if they have not already achieved that before our studies began, and a thorough understanding of how chords are constructed and how chord progressions operate.
*** Specialties ***
I am comfortable teaching any style of guitar or bass guitar. With piano, I prefer to emphasize the student's strengths and focus in on their areas of comfort and familiarity. I use a wide variety of method books, depending on the student's goals and their own personal interests.

"My daughter's wedding was weeks away and I had never been able to dance a step. With Jenny's help, I came further than ever before in such short time in any subject."
