Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

"Excellent teacher! He is helping me with tempo and have taught me new ways of playing the guitar. He cares about hands position in the guitar in order to play the guitar in a comfortable and efficient way. Also, he tells you what you are doing wrong in a very subtle way. You can tell he really enjoys teaching people how to play guitar remembering the basics and showing anyone can play guitar with practice, dedication and passion."

He really cares about his students. I found him very approachable and easy to talk to. He is always willing to work with me to come up the best solution for my son. He encourages my son to do more practice by teaching him how to play his favorite songs. Raymond is the best guitar teacher and I would highly recommend."

"I had been playing primarily heavy metal guitar for the past decade or so, but recently I had been itching to give classical guitar a shot. I chose Shaun primarily because he lived in my area and because he offered in-home lessons at a very reasonable rate.

After 6 months of lessons or so, I have to say I've had every expectation met and exceeded. He puts a lot of effort into designing his own instructional materials (exercises, theory work, etc), and he always comes to the lesson with a plan. He's also done a great job helping me develop proper technique (particularly in the right hand) and certain musicianship skills (e.g., improv, inflection/mood). The pieces he has chosen for me to work on have been both challenging for my skill level but also musically compelling.

Most importantly, he's just the nicest guy in the world, always has a lot of enthusiasm (but isn't over the top), and has an open mind when it comes to others' taste in music and what his students want to get out of the guitar.

In sum: my lessons with him have been very effective and have been a blast, I highly recommend him!"
