Guitarist, Songwriter, Composer, Arranger, Producer, Performer
With a musical style similar to Carlos Santana, George has been a musical force ever since the release of his 1975 Gold-record album with the group called Chango, and for the past 3 decades, this world-renowned guitarist and songwriter has performed, produced, and written songs for major acts in rock, metal, blues and jazz as well as fusion and Latin American music.

The virtuoso session guitarist has recorded with such names as The Brecker Brothers and the Saturday Night Live band, and he has toured with Journey, Styx, Tina Turner, Robin Trower, Chick Corea, Bob Seger, Fania All Stars, and many other music legends. And now with his group Second ...

About George
Guitarist, Songwriter, Composer, Arranger, Producer, Performer

The virtuoso session guitarist has recorded with such names as The Brecker Brothers and the Saturday Night Live band, and he has toured with Journey, Styx, Tina Turner, Robin Trower, Chick Corea, Bob Seger, Fania All Stars, and many other music legends. And now with his group Second Chance, he's more dazzling than ever, rejuvenated with a real second chance after recovering from a life-threatening illness.
George's first album to bring attention to his guitar mastery was Chango, as part of the group of the same name, which signed to ABC Records in the 70’s. The album went gold, selling more than 500 thousand copies. George’s second record was on Mercury records. He also produced, co-wrote and played guitar with a group called Apache, signed to Atlantic records. All the
records reached the Billboard charts.
More recently, George's Under the Influence CD has had major exposure and has been played on over 550 radio stations worldwide. The CD, which has sold more than five thousand copies without a major release, feat

Witnessing George instruct is watching a professional at work! He doesn't play the guitar, but he makes the guitar sing. You can tell his experience by his knowledge of his instrument, and what he teaches is substantial to what I need or anybody else to become a better musician. Just like his productions he teaches at a high-level, but breaks it down for even a child to understand. If you want a transformation in your musicianship, I'm confident Mr. Jacobs is your guy!

I met George at his Miami guitar shop, we tried some amps and pedals, immediately i knew he could play the guitar like few can. From hendrix to santana, progressive to classic, George is your guy if you want to know in deep the art of guitar playing. Plus he can help you with finding Your sound.

George is an excellent instructor. My son had been playing for awhile but just couldn’t get past the brick wall that he kept hitting. George worked with him and was able to get past the rut he was in and help him expand his skills. My son is now 17 and plays in a popular local band that has several paying gigs a month. Thank you George.

About Carrie
*****I don't have a current background check through take lessons but have an active ongoing background check through another employer ******

I've been teaching and performing professionally for over 15 years. I have my BA in music and business. I have had some amazing experiences along the way. I've worked with world renowned vocal coaches, sang at Carnegie Hall, and played on various cds to raise money/awareness for charity projects. I'm grateful for all of this, but I love working with students on their music most of all. It delights me to see a student have an "aha" moment where they realize that they have what it takes to be great. I'd love to work with you, but if I don't I hope you reach your goals and have fun doing it ! ~ Carrie Jo ~

*** Lesson Details ***
I'm a laid back teacher but you will definitely learn
a lot. I just believe if it starts to not be fun, what's the point? Music isn't just about perfect theory and note placement it's about enjoyment. That's why I tailor make every lesson specifically based on my student's goals. I have students that like a more traditional approach so I use standard method books with them. I also have students that want to learn how to play by ear so we use a less traditional method and I teach them chord structures and how to move around easily on their instrument. My favorite thing to teach is vocal lessons but I love teaching piano and guitar also.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught on an upright piano or acoustic/electric guitar. Student should bring own guitar. No pets. Waiting room out front for parents.

*** Travel Equipment ***
They need their own instrument.

*** Specialties ***
I've performed at Carnegie Hall and I've had the opportunity to work with world renowned vocal coaches. I offer that as well as techniques that I've developed to help you reach your goals quickly and with great skill !

I love to teach guitar because I feel it is an outlet for kids that may not always be interested in piano or voice. It's a beautiful instrument that you can play your entire life.

About Ruthie
My name is Ruthie and I graduated from the University of Northern Colorado in May of 2007 with a Bachelors of Music Education degree with an emphasis in voice. Through my collegiate experiences, I had the privilege of participating in a Concert Choir, Barbershop/A Capella Ensembles, Vocal Jazz Ensembles and Performance in Solo Voice. The jazz program at UNC is one of the finest in the United States, and to be selected as a member of one of the vocal jazz ensembles was an honor in itself. From these experiences I have gained knowledge about the importance of vocal performance and music advocacy. I accepted a position as a general music teacher in Colorado in the fall of 2007 and then worked part time for a school in Laguna Niguel, CA until June of 2012. I recently moved from California to Minnesota and am trying to get my music student cli
entele established. I love to sing all different styles and I'd love to help you find your style and help discover your passions.

My passion for music started for me as a young child. I grew up in a musically inclined family, and was inspired and motivated by family members to use my gifts and talents to educate students about the world of music. My immense love for children, coupled with my educational experiences and my passion for music qualify me as a fun and exciting teacher.

I am huge lover of Barbershop/Sweet Adeline music and I recently competed in the International Young Women in Harmony Quartet Contest in Nashville, TN. My quartet, Vogue, won the competition. The Young Women in Harmony contest is for girls 25 years old and younger. I recently sang with a quartet called, Dolce. We competed in two International Competitions in Denver and Hawaii and placed 10th and 15th in the world. I was also a member of the International Gold Medalist Chorus, Harborlites, which is comprised of 180 female singers.

"Music isn't just learning notes and playing them, You learn notes to play to the music of your soul." - Katie Greenwood

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons will be educational and fun. I want to find your passions and interests and from there I will create lesson plans to enhance your learning experience in your specified concentration. Voice lessons will start with vocal warm ups and exercises and then we will proceed to work on vocal techniques and preferred repertoire. During the lessons we will create goals and work on those goals so you become a successful musician.

I am a very patient and caring teacher and I am able to create the lessons to your style and needs. Music is fun and I want to make it that way for you!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a full keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
I studied music education in college with a vocal emphasis. I am classically trained but studied jazz as well. I also am a member of an internationally ranked barbershop chorus and quartet. I specialize in singing bass and lead in barbershop.

I thoroughly enjoy teaching guitar to all ages and levels! And in a myriad of styles too- Blues, Jazz, Rock, Classical, Flamenco, Country, Folk, etc. If you are looking to flourish and grow as a well rounded guitarist then sign up to begin your musical journey...

About David
A fun, friendly, and professional Music Instructor at your service for Voice, Guitar, Piano, Bass, Drums, & Ukulele! I have a BA degree from Florida Atlantic University in Music Performance for Classical/Flamenco/Jazz/Blues guitar and I've also performed on the Piano/Keyboards for a couple different bands too. Love to play & teach pretty much all styles of music! It is always a pure joy & truly rewarding to see my music students grow and flourish in their musical abilities. I have been enjoying doing this now for 20+ years- all ages & levels. I am also in a multi-dimensional rock project and a recording artist with my band Vision.

I believe it's important to learn the rudiments of music to build a good foundation (scales, chord vocabulary, theory, song-composition, performing techniques), but I also base the lessons on whatever th
e interests and strengths are for the student. For example, if you enjoy jazz more than classical we'll focus more on what you are particularly passionate about. I have also been a part of School of Rock Programs in which we provided performances for the students a la Jack Black. Please contact Takelessons to let the musical journey begin...

I've been playing guitar for the last 15 years and giving lessons for almost as long! I have a degree in music from the University of Miami and am currently touring out of Nashville. I'd like to think I have a fairly wide range of musical tastes (jazz, country, blues, acoustic, gypsy jazz, rockabilly, rock, etc.) and I enjoy the different challenges that each of my students bring to the table. So whether you're just wanting to strum a few old favorites at home, or if you're on your way to being a Nashville pro like me, I'd be happy to help you along your musical journey!

About Matthew
I picked up the guitar (at my father's encouragement) back in 2003 and never quite turned back! Originally from Kansas City, MO, I first got regular exposure playing in my high school's jazz band and in various other jazz groups, and was lucky enough to study extensively with local guitarists Rod Fleeman and Danny Embrey. I still make occasional trips back to my hometown to perform and record, and played on a couple of records with the KC-based group The Matt Cook Collective in 2016 and 2017.

My next stop was the University of Miami, where I attended the Frost School of Music from 2012-2016 and was fortunate enough to study with John Hart, Brian Russell, and Tim Jago I played with my first Grammy winner (multi-instrumentalist guru Charlie McCoy) and released an EP with Big City Folk Band in 2015. In between school semesters, I performe
d with country and jazz groups in Kansas City and gave lessons at KC Music, a local music store.

In 2017, I relocated to Nashville, began touring with country artist Derryl Perry, and recorded and released my first solo album, Aces. In between tour dates, I've been enjoying the task of expanding both my teaching studio and my guitar resume in this growing city.

I have also taken lessons from Gonzalo Bergara, Dan Wilson, Lorne Lofsky, Charlie Hunter, Jim Campilongo, Randy Vincent, Greg Koch, Guthrie Trapp, Brent Mason, and many more!

Update: will be at the Smoky Mountain Opry in Pigeon Forge TN in 2018!

About Carrie
Carrie Schneider is a multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter living in Nashville, TN by way of Minnesota. As a lover of all genres of music, her wildly unique style spans from classic and elegant Americana, to dark and thoughtful electronic-dream-pop.
Carrie got her start in the music industry as an intern for Rockhouse Studios in Saint Joseph, MN, under the guidance of sound engineer Jeff Engholm. It was there she harvested her love for audio production and sound engineering while working with and observing industry professionals like Nicholas David (of The Voice), Bobby Vee, Teague Alexy (Hobo Nephews Of Uncle Frank), Collective Unconscious, and The Vees.
In 2006, Schneider moved to Chicago to join the band Lindbergh, during that time she toured the country and played extensively at some of Chicago’s premier venues. In 2009 she moved b
ack to her home in Minnesota where she worked as a performer, producer, songwriter, and teacher. Now newly transplanted to Nashville, she works as a singer-songwriter and music instructor. One of the most important things she has learned throughout her musical adventures and experiences is to treat your craft with respect. Harvest your talents by feeding them passion, creativity, tremendous effort.
As a teacher, Schneider loves to connect with people of all ages through music. She believes anything is possible with hard work, patience, and a smile, and she loves to break the rules and get creative once in a while – however, “In order to break the rules, we must learn them first.”
