Jason is an AMAZING TEACHER!!! He is so fun and knowledgeable. I found him on Instagram. I was always admiring his guitar playing whenever I saw his videos. I reached out to him and I took my first lesson last week via Skype since I'm living in a different state. I'm looking forward to what he is gonna teach me next! Thank you so much Jason!

I took several lessons with Jason and he is a very knowledgeable guitar teacher and he makes the learning experience a good one. He breaks down the teaching experience so even the most beginning student can understand it and he caters to his students individual needs.

I have been teaching songwriting for over four years. These lessons are wholly rewarding as I love to conduct it as a "jam session" of sorts, helping my students frame their ideas into versus-chorus form, as well as helping them with basic music theory and sheet music transferring digitally with Sibelius 7 or in paper form.

Great first lesson.
Raahil J.
He pays attention to detail, is super organized with a definite plan and knows how to keep a student's interest. He is balanced and very realistic in his approach. He is talented and meets the student where he is. He is even transcribing a Bollywood song for my son and my son is loving it! He is flexible... We are so happy to have found him.

I'm enjoying my lessons with Annie very much. My lessons are usually in home but until the stay at home restrictions are lifted the online lessons are working out much better than I had anticipated.

She’s very helpful and insightful for what I needed at the time she was not demeaning or overbearing and I thought very comfortable working with her when I return to Tennessee I will definitely consider her again

I love songwriting, and have been writing songs pretty much since the day I started playing music. I mostly write songs on the guitar and for voice, but I have plenty of experience writing music for all instruments, as well as writing songs for rock, pop, and jazz bands. I can help you with your own songs no matter what style of music you like. I can help you learn the elements of song writing that are universal to all styles of music so that you can find your own sound, as well as how to get the sound of a specific style.

About Cristopher

If you feel like you're stuck or hit a wall, I can help take your skills to the next level; I can help you improve your technique, learn difficult songs, learn more about gear and gigs and performing, help you learn how to play any chord, key, or scale in any position, or help you learn how to solo

"Fawn is an incredible songwriter and coach! She has turned my mediocre songs into hits and I have placed several on television shows since she helped me make them better. Every lesson I learn something new and feel empowered and like I'm finally headed in the right direction. You will learn so much about yourself when you take lessons with her. She is a true blessing."

"Andrew's fantastic musicianship mixed with a low key personality,
is the perfect recipe for a great music instructor.
Aspiring bass players should capitalize on his ability to play
both fluid single note lines-and this is key-his incredibly
funky bottom end. Non-bassists, never fear. He also has the solid music
theory thing down so there is something for everyone to take your musical knowledge to the next level."

She was a very constructive co-writer and instructor, as she helped make sure that each section of my song had a purpose and was impactful. Overall, Triana has a lot to offer to up and coming songwriters who may want an experienced musician or writer’s valuable input.
