About Jason

I started in my teens picking up my favorite songs here and there, similar to most guitarists. I did just enough so I could write songs and play them with my friends. I played around in a few rock cover outfits. Eventually, I was getting to the point where just a few chords wasn't enough. I needed to play a lead or melody line and I didn't know what to do.

Jason has been giving lessons to my 10 year old daughter for about 6 months. We've been really pleased with the progress she's making and she really enjoys her lessons. Jason does a great job working with her to make practice fun and keeping her engaged.
