Hey guys! My name is Jered and I'd love to be a guide on your guitar journey. I've been playing for 20 years, have a BA in Music and Recording Technology, and currently play in a rock band in Portland, OR. I have taught students of all ages and all skill levels. My first love is rock, but I have studied classical, blues, country, metal, pop, funk and dabbled in a little jazz.

Thanks for checking out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.

I have had many experiences preparing for auditions for schools, symphonies and even for mock auditions. I have also learned about the audition experience through studying with my professor at Eastman, Peter Kurau, and through masterclasses with the renowned horn professor, William VerMeulen of Rice University.

Our first class was amazing! Xin is bursting with positive energy, kindness, and patience. She’s exactly what my 9 year old hopeful musician needs right now! Can’t wait to continue classes with her!

Xi is VERY knowledgeable of the art of horn playing. I understand what she is saying without difficulty. She knows what she is doing and her skill in teaching is above average. I’m so thankful to have found a teacher who respects where I am at 54 and how to help me get back in the game. The work is up to me of course, but she been very real and encouraging along the way. Well done!

Dynamic and effective lessons. Fundamentals of horn playing explained thoroughly through fun, easy to follow drills and video clips from the instructor. Each student gets a designated share drive with lesson notes, assignments, technique videos etc.
