Private Bluegrass Guitar Teacher

I like to start lessons by talking about your goals, and then I come up with a personalized lesson plan (and practice plan) for each student and we work on implementing it together. I teach blues, rock, pop, folk, and a little bluegrass. I can teach acoustic or electric guitar and have extensive experience with both. I can teach anyone from absolute beginner to intermediate/slightly advanced, and any age! Depending on what you’re looking for, I can teach chords, scales, improvisation, covers of popular songs, and even songwriting. I myself have also taken lessons for many years, and I periodically take check-in lessons to make sure I am continuing to challenge myself. Playing guitar is one of my favorite feelings, and at this point my instrument feels like an extension of myself. I’m excited to share my love of music with you and inspire you to challenge yourself and reach your goals!

Jessica is such a great guitar teacher! She pushed me to learn new things and even taught me a bit about the theory behind what I was learning. She was always prepared with a lesson to teach and really took the time to make sure I was retaining the information and practicing my skills. I definitely became a better guitarist because of her!!
Melanie
Jessica Thompson is a great instructor for anyone from beginners to pros. She was a very patient teacher and I really felt like I learned valuable skills from her bass lessons! Learning a new instrument is hard, and Jess is the girl who will get you there!

1 Proficiencies: Playing scales, arpeggios, chords, chord inversions, chords with bass lines, chord melody chord progressions, techniques, basic music theory, and more.

2 Reading: Identifying single notes in all positions, reading chord symbols, and reading chords and melody together. Reading rhythms.

3 Song Repertoire: Learning and appreciating songs, understanding the theory used in the song development, incorporating emotions and dynamics into the song, and learning how to apply learned proficiencies to master the songs and add personal improvisational touches to the songs.

Each student is monitored with a checklist that follows the three categories so we can identify strengths and weaknesses as students progress through different musical styles. The checklists help ...

Very patient and understanding person. At my age of 62 and trying to learn the bass along with the challenges of issues brought by life, these sessions have become therapeutic in nature....

Dee was very informative and answered all my questions. She understands that myself an older student returning to music has a different approach and she is going to work with me. I am looking forward to next week.
