Being one of the few instructors and music coaches I have a professional resume and experience that only a few instructors in the world can say they possess. Toured or shared the national and international stage with... John Mellencamp, Ted Nugent, Rare Earth, Kid Rock, Willie Nelson, Cheryl Crow just to name a few. The students I have instructed and coached and consulted with, many have gone on to teach themselves and/or become professional working musicians. I am the right instructor for you. I teach all levels and skill sets and ages... with your desire and positive attitude, I can help you achieve your musical dreams a reality.
I have been a professional musician and composer for many years and I have performed all over the U.S. The guitar is easy to learn and gives the player a chance to learn about herself or himself as well as entertaiining others.
What do you WANT to learn? Learning should always be fun, even when it is challenging. I try to find out what my student WANTS to learn and then integrate that desire into what must be mastered. I have taught at all levels in the Indianapolis Public Schools. I have taught Literature, Composition, and Sociology, to name a few subjects, at the college level.I hold a professionalized Indiana teaching license (expires 2025) and a Master’s degree in education.I have successfully taught at-risk students as they prepared for the GED and TASC high school equivalency, even setting school records for completion rates. I am currently preparing on-line learning courses for the state of Indiana. I home-schooled my own children and they have graduated college with honors.I have authored two ...

I'm Jake. Let me start by saying that I have been a music coach for over 18 years, and have had the privilege of guiding, to date, 1,422 clients to overcome their fears and truly succeed in their musical dreams. There are few things that I enjoy more than connecting with others and helping them to recognize their potential...then growing into it. Maybe you've never sang a note or even touched a guitar - or maybe you've been at it for awhile and are just unsure as to how you can improve upon your existing skills... Wherever YOU are... I'm here for YOU! This isn't my job - this is my PASSION THIS is what I care about. THIS is what I do. THIS is who I am. Helping YOU to see what's been locked away inside of you... Your. Creative.

I have been playing guitar for 7 years, but have never taught it. Don't worry though! I am currently getting my degree in music education (graduating in May 2015) and have taught violin lessons for many years. I am very comfortable with giving guitar lessons. Basic/advanced chords, strumming, flat-picking, and tablature reading are all things you can expect from lessons with me! Thank you for your consideration!
Hi! My name is Matthew and I have been studying music my entire life. I started playing the violin when I was 5 years old, and never stopped. Several years ago, I took up guitar, and am now proficient at both instruments. I studied music theory and ear training in college and will graduate with a degree in music education in May 2015. I am open to students of all ages and am very eager to help them learn all about music, whether it is playing violin or guitar, helping them prepare for an audition, or helping to further their love of music. Thank you for your consideration!
