Have you ever wanted to learn this wonderful and very humoristic language and culture? Be it you're just travelling because someone told you that they're making the best cheese in the world (which is true!) or you're moving there because someone got you a job (lucky you!) or you just want to learn another language because you're curious. Let me warn you: It is not a modification of the German language, even though there's a few words that might look similar at first glance, but they're pronounced completely different! So, a small country with a huge culture! Ik hoop, tot ziens!

I love tailoring lessons to my students! Music is personal and I want to make sure you're learning what you're interested in or need to learn in order to prepare you for auditions or keep up in groups you play in. I always ask students for a list of music they're listening to or want to learn - nothing's off limits!

While I prefer working out of Piano Adventures Method Books for piano students, I'm happy to work out of materials you already own.

Awesome lesson, definitely excited to keep going. He knows his stuff!

Jarod is an exceptional music production teacher!

Jarod and I have been working together weekly for more than a year now. Prior to us working together I had zero production knowledge and very little musical knowledge. I didn’t even know what a MIDI was. Jarod structured his lessons initially around how to use Ableton, but to say he is an ableton teacher would be inaccurate. Jarod has in fact been an immersive teacher across all aspects of edm music production including production, song writing, mixing, mastering, audio engineering, music theory, vocal production and the music business. He possess deep domain expertise across all these topics, and teaches patiently, with humor and with an infallibly positive attitude.

Within a year I have produced a number of songs and will hopefully release one soon. I have learnt how to produce, structure and compose all elements of an edm song, much faster than if was self taught with YouTube videos.

It’s very unique to be able to learn from a signed artist who is actively releasing music. I highly recommend Jarod if you are interested in learning music production. He will be a great partner to you and friend!
Colleen S
Jarod knows how to make his clients feel welcome in his studio, he is productive with his time, gives very helpful feedback during recording, and I look forward to future in studio sessions with him.

"David was our family's music teacher for the last 6 years. He taught my son piano, electric guitar, acoustic guitar, and music theory and composition. He also taught my daughter piano. He is an excellent teacher. He is very good at approaching music from the student's level and growing with them by bringing in new theory or music when the student is ready. He is in no way intimidating and is very good at instilling a love of music. He has a warm and gentle nature and can relate to very different personalities. The only reason he is not still teaching our family is that he moved. I highly recommend him."
