Jason L.

Book Now

I graduated from Musicians Institute in Hollywood (originally called GIT), a renowned music school especially for the guitar. I have had taken guitar lessons and also taught students of different ages for nearly 5 years before I attended MI.

I received an honors degree of Guitar Performance and Audio Engineering and have been on the Dean's List every quarter.

I will combine my teaching experience and what I have learned and summarized from my learning, in order to give you comprehensive, in-depth, straightforward, and easily applicable lessons from beginner to advanced.

When I was teaching back then, I sometimes focused on one thing at a time and didn't realized how important to combine all things together it is until I went to MI. I will cover all the following sections throughout my lessons, so that you will become more of a musician, instead of a, for lack of a better word, guitarist:

Technique
Music Theory
Performance
Improvisation

We didn’t have a cello teacher in our small town so we decided to try taking online lessons. Jessica took my daughter through Suzuki books 1-6. She was very personable and very focused. She kept my daughter motivated and even allowed performance opportunities (Skyping into recitals). We have since moved to a bigger city and my daughter takes live lessons. Her new teacher (who has a doctorate in cello performance) was very impressed with my daughter’s technique. Thanks Jessica for giving my daughter a great musical foundation!

My approach is fun, simple, and easy to understand. I focus on getting a strong foundation and excellent first experience with music. The child will be given a lesson and theory book to work from, but will also be encouraged to play music they personally like. This keeps the child motivated to play and adds an element of fun! These songs can then be used in our recitals, for auditions, or put in their personal repertoire book.

He is patient with you and very positive and reinforcing. The passion he has for music is obvious from the first time you meet him.

How to Build the Perfect Drum Practice Routine

You have to practice drums if you want to improve, but how can you make your practice time more productive? Here, Rosendale NY drum instructor Alan S. shares his strategy to help you create an effective drum practice routine... Progress does not always happen in a straight line. During my years playing drums, I've been through periods of quick improvement, as well as darker times of actually getting worse. I've also been through phases of staying at the same level: In my case, instead of …
