Jerry W.

Dallas, TX

Maximum development of musical skills. The freedom to apply those skills in the songs they choose. The opportunity to perform (recital) if they so choose.

About Jerry

Jerry W. holds a Bachelor of Music Degree in Music Education from Oklahoma Baptist University, as well as a Master of Music Pedagogy and Performance from Oklahoma State University. He is a published research assistant as well as the author of 6 books on sight reading. He is also the inventor of the game "guitar bingo." He cites Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Paul Gilbert, Bill Lafleur, Alex Machacek and Monte Montgomery to be among his most powerful influences.

Lesson format is as follows: First, a short drill of fundamentals (this can include scales, arpeggios, exercises, etc.).
Second, a short segment of reading. Third, the study of a piece of music (usually in the favored style chosen by the student). This third section of the lesson is very important as the focus is on the practical application of the fundamentals previously studied. Fourth, a short segment involving improvisation (again, typically in the style of music chosen by the student).

Jerry is not only a phenomenal instructor, but also a great coach, which is what you have to be in order to keep an 8 year old engaged. My son is very much engaged and enjoying the lessons. Thank you Jerry!

Fabulous!

Jerry is a great guitar teacher! He is a bright addition to my life with his humor and extensive and useful knowledge of guitar. He is not easily distracted by my questions; he answers them and we move on to accomplish even more. My view of what I'd like to learn can be so small or narrow, and he is encouraging me to really expand my knowledge and skills in every area of the guitar and music.I have a background in music, and was basically self-taught for a few years. He has easily spring-boarded off what I already know and added so much more. Jerry is flexible enough to teach me what I think I need, and then, reach into his deep library of lesson materials and give me plenty of challenge. His instructions are easy to understand and follow. He has made himself very available to me for questions.He is positive, upbeat, funny, understanding, patient, and has a skill level on the guitar that inspires me to improve. He is a safe and welcome addition to our family. I hope someday to add more of my family members to his roster of students. Let's all play guitar!!! Just like Jerry!

Jordan D.

Carrollton, TX

I am an experienced, educated, professional guitar player with a background in rock, blues, worship, jazz, classical, contemporary, country, and folk guitar. I have played/led for numerous worship teams, independent bands, and ensembles which are detailed in my "about me" section. I graduated Magna-Cum Laude from UTA with a bachelors degree in Music-Media with guitar as my primary performing instrument. I am the worship leader for Living Life Church, a private guitar instructor, and an on-staff session guitarist and music producer at Drive35 Productions.

About Jordan

13 years ago, I picked up a guitar and began my life-long pursuit of music. This pursuit has led me in a wide variety of directions. Today, I am the worship leader for Living Life Church, an on-staff music-producer and session musician at Drive35 Productions, and a passionate instructor.

I have a passion for a wide variety of styles of music. For several years, I was the lead guitarist, singer, and songwriter for multiple independent rock bands, the most notable being an indie psychedelic band called Tod The Fox. I have led worship for many churches including Grace Fellowship UMC, Brazos
Pointe Church, The Cornerstone College Ministry at UTA, and FUMC Allen in varying capacities. At UTA, I studied Jazz and Classical guitar under acclaimed guitarists Sam Walker and Billy Robertson. Here, I also studied theory, piano, sight-singing, and music-production extensively. I graduated Magna Cume Laude with a Bachelor of Music-Media from UTA. After school, I spent 9 months interning/assistant engineering with acclaimed musician/composer/producer Brad Nyght at The Bakery Studio in Dallas- whose credits include being the drummer for The Michael Gungor Band and Desperation Band. Then, got hired as an on-staff session musician and music producer at Drive35 Productions. I have also played guitar, mandolin, and bass for multiple pit orchestras and guitar for the North Lake Jazz Ensemble with director Jim Eger.

My teaching style varies from student to student. Music is a wonderfully diverse subject and every student has his own aspirations. I will do my best to cater each lesson to the student's goals and interests. Whether that is classical guitar method, rock, jazz, folk, country, pop or anything in between.

I have an excellent internet connection and microphone set up for online lessons. I also utilize screen-sharing to make the lessons as close to real life as possible.

A few of my favorite artists include: Michael Gungor, Joe Pass, Andrew Bird, Chopin, Led Zeppelin, Glen Hansard, and Radiohead.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons will vary significantly from student to student. Not only does every student have different goals in mind, they all learn differently as well. I do my best to customize my lessons for each student's goals and needs. A typical guitar, bass, ukulele, or piano lesson may involve music-reading, chord studies, technical work, scale practice, theory, and of course learning awesome songs!

I consider myself a healthy balance between professional and light-hearted. As much as I want to make efficient use of the lesson-time, my primary goal is for the student to truly understand and enjoy music.

I have worked hard to be a flexible musician and teacher. I am competent in jazz, rock, classical, contemporary, blues, worship, country, and beyond and will be happy to teach any (or all) of these styles to any student.

Michael is great guitar instructor, he always starts out wiith asking if I have any questions about previous lessons or assignments. Michael is great about teaching me better ways of playing something to break bad habits I taught myself and he explains the guitar theory if you want to learn that as well.
I renewed my lessons and would recommend Michael for any level of player.
