When Jiuri is not teaching or performing music, she loves traveling, seeing all the different and interesting cultures, museums and learning about the history of places. Jiuri is an avid reader.

Music therapy is a therapeutic discipline that can only be legally practiced by board certified music therapists (MT-BC). Music therapy has been described as “a systematic process of intervention wherein the therapist helps the client to promote health, using music experiences and the relationships that develop through them as dynamic forces of change.” A music therapist is first and foremost a therapist, with a host of experiences of how to promote psychological, emotional, and physical change using music as a medium.

I have a Master's degree in music therapy, am board certified and have years of internship, fieldwork, fellowship and professional experience working with individuals with special needs. I have experience working with children, teens, and young adults with ASD, Down's syndrome, Rhett's syndrome, cerebral palsy, ADHD, and other pervasive developmental delays.

If 5 stars is for Best instructor ever than Jillian is the winner! When I first started, I was so afraid of singing off pitch that I was afraid to sing! Jillian has helped me to gain confidence for singing from my heart, expressing emotion. I do not even worry about pitch anymore. All of Jillian's students are so lucky like me to have Jillian for support and guidance to make our dreams a reality!

I ADORE Jillian! She is so sweet and encouraging. When my schedule is crazy she does everything in her power to accommodate me. It is clear that she knows what she is doing. After trying to teach myself guitar for YEARS, with the way she explains things, I am already further along after just 3 lessons. She also has a gorgeous voice! I can't wait to continue learning from her!

How would you feel if you could simply get better at guitar through a few techniques? That is my specialty. Of course I have taught and continue to do so in non-performance coaching (standard) lessons.

Using psychological methods you can improve your skills, no matter what your ability and years played.
I happily teach basics, tuning, fretting, hand position, chords, names of chords, jazz chords, odd meters, polyrhythms, ear training, how to hold a pick, the usual stuff.

Marie
Lessons with Al are always a high point of my week. Learning guitar as an adult is challenging, and he is unfailingly encouraging and motivational. His teaching method - a mix of music theory, exercises, improvisation, and practicing songs - keeps things fresh and challenging every week, and has helped me become better at productive practicing outside of each session. Al is also willing to jump down the rabbit hole with me when I bring him something I can’t figure out on my own. I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is a wonderful teacher.
James
Al is incredibly passionate about passing his expertise to the next generation. My son studied drum set with him for 3 years, and is now a jazz studies major in college. The enthusiasm and knowledge he will impart on your student is invaluable. Highly recommended!
Marie
Very fun guy, with an extraordinary amount of knowledge, talent, and overall passion for music. I’m really looking forward to my future lessons.
