About Ed
I have played the guitar my entire life and never lost my love for it (even when I tried!). I have a bachelor's degree in guitar from Wichita State University where I studied with jazz guitar legend Jerry Hahn (Rolling Stone magazine called him one of the top 3 jazz guitarists in the world). From there I traveled to Hollywood, CA where I attended G.I.T. at the Musicians Institute. I spent several years travelling the Pacific Northwest with different rock bands before settling down to a career in financial services and becoming a husband and father.

I love teaching piano. I've taught for eight years, working with children and adults of all levels of experience. My students have said they appreciate my patience, enthusiasm, and careful plan for each lesson to achieve new skills and understanding. Each lesson written exercises which teach theory and reinforce new concepts. My goal is for every student to have the sight-reading, critical-listening, and understanding of theory to make them a complete musician.

Amy was great! She was great to work with on scheduling and was very good about keeping in touch prior to the lesson letting me know we were still on for the scheduled time. She really knew how to teach well and was thorough making sure my daughter understood what needed to be done during the week before the next lesson. We are very happy with her and look forward to learning a lot.

Amanda is an outstanding teacher. She inspires and challenges me to play pieces I did not think I could play. She is able to take difficult passages and break them down step my step so I can learn how to play them properly. I am sure I would not be playing as I am now, if it weren’t for Amanda’s skilled teaching. She is also friendly, makes the lessons interesting and fun and is very professional. I have taken lessons both in person and on Skype and she excels in both modes.

About Jake
Music fills virtually my entire life. When I was 12 years old I picked up my dad's old guitar, played a few chords, and haven't put it down since.

I am currently studying Composition at Macalester College, but my experience goes far beyond the classroom. I sing in the advanced Concert Choir, as well as in Macalester's premier acapella group, and I am the frontman of a locally prominent band. I have been performing since I was 14, and have opened for several noteworthy artists, including Lion Babe, Lil' Dickie and T-Pain.

With me, students can expect to not only learn the guitar but also invaluable performance techniques, music theory, music history and more. Whatever your musical goals, be it acoustic songwriting like Taylor Swift or Ed Sheeran, shredding guitar solos like Jimi Hendrix or Joan Jett, or intricate rhythmic strummings li
ke John Frusciante or Nancy Wilson, I am determined to help you succeed.

My son has been taking lessons from Jacob for several months and the improvement is incredible. We went through two other teachers before finding Jacob. None of them could get through enough to really make the instrument resonate with him. I'm glad we didn't give up though! Our son is now a ukulele extraordinaire! ;-)
