I have been playing guitar for 21 years. I make lesson plans based on each individual, so I don't teach every one the same boring songs or use the same regiment with everyone. I want to teach you what YOU want to learn.

About Jeremie

I'm a self taught guitarist who has been playing for 20 years. I have played professionally in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock, and I've been writing music for the same length of time. I currently perform with one of my students from TakeLessons named Mackenzie O'Brien

Private Guitar Teacher

I teach every student the technical skills and applied theory necessary to work in any contemporary style on guitar. I use the "Be better than you have to be" approach. Want to be the best on a bad day? Be better than your chosen style requires. I studied classical and jazz in order to excel at rock, folk and blues.
You will learn to read music and charts for guitar, as well as movable scale patterns, movable chord forms, and how to apply it all to master the fretboard.
Have you hit a road block? I can help. Are you brand new and want to be sure you understand the instrument completely? I can help.

Private Guitar Teacher

I've been teaching guitar for 5 years helping students develop a love for the instrument and learn more about music along the way. There are many styles I'm comfortable teaching from folk (fingerpicking or flatpicking), rock, blues and funk and I would love working on developing a unique style of your own. Within the first few lessons you'll have a solid base of strumming, picking and chord changes and even a few simple songs under your belt. Moving on from there I will craft lessons to move you toward a "goal song," making sure to cater your progress to your needs while keeping a focus on good technique. I enjoy working with students of all ages and experiences and I can't wait to meet you!

I've had several piano teachers over the years. Isaiah is by far the best. He is patient and extremely knowledgeable.
Erik H.
For someone who has never taken a private music lesson before I able to relax and begin learning about music literacy and music theory by Isaiah's ability to express and articulate the fundamentals of guitar in a simplified way. It was rewarding to leave the lesson with new techniques to practice and have fun with.

"Taking lessons with Jared is a true gift; one that inevitably sends me out the door in better spirits then when I come in.
Jared is knowledgeable, experienced, respectful, flexible, funny, sensitive, patient, humble and kind.
I most appreciate his flexibility and understanding towards where I am in the moment, and believe that the ability for a teacher to meet the student where they're at is a true art.
I came to him for lessons in guitar, and am learning so much more. I have improved my skills on guitar, my understanding of theory, my confidence in song-writing, my awareness of the music industry, my comfort in singing, etc.!
Most importantly for me, is that taking lessons with Jared helps me be accountable to my own dreams of being a musician and he helps me take that seriously by celebrating the small victories and always being respectful to my ideas and efforts.
Jared has helped elevate and encourage my musicianship most importantly by simply being humble, human and easy to work with!
He shares his love of music and his joy in his students' progress, and he creates a community of learners that respect and cheer for each other at regular performances.
I am confident that Jared can help you learn what you want to learn, that you'll end up having fun and learning something you weren't expecting to learn along the way, and that he is humble enough to say if he ever gets stumped by a question and you'll end up learning something new together.
Have fun!"

"Paul has been teaching guitar to my two sons (17 and 11) since January and they are both very happy with his lessons and his teaching style. They look forward to their lesson and trust him completely, because my sons are starting to see that following Paul's instructions is producing good results. In particular, my sons appreciate Paul's patience and his ability to demonstrate clearly all the necessary steps to improve their playing ability. Paul is very good to adjust his teaching to the needs of his students and, as a fellow teacher myself, I think that is a fundamental characteristic of any good teacher. In conclusion, I feel very confident to recommend Paul, if you are looking for an experienced, patient and very attentive guitar teacher."
