Blake B. Fort Worth, TX

Classical, steel string acoustic and electric guitar lessons. I played my first guitar around the age of 13, discovered it was difficult to learn on my own, and decided to take lessons at a local music store. My teacher was excellent and had me playing songs very early on in the lessons. It was fun! I believe this is one of the most important ways to instill a love for music and maintain the motivation to continue playing.

It carried me through everything from getting up in front of my friends to play, a garage band, playing gigs and my degree in music!

In college, I learned to play classical guitar at an advanced level in addition to becoming a decent piano, marimba and drum set player. That takes a fair bit of motivation which, believe me, I wouldn't have had if I didn't truly enjoy it. My passion for music might have been dampened if teachers were not able to help me enjoy learning the often challenging methods for playing musical instruments.

Let me help you the way my ...

The short of this review is that Blake is an excellent instructor. Having received a guitar as a gift I came to him with next to zero knowledge. He took the time with me to build the solid fundamentals and work up from there. In conjunction with working with Blake on my technique and further practice on my own time I was able to play with quite a bit more confidence than before. His knowledge on the guitar is quite apparent. My only regret is that I cannot continue the lessons as I am having to move out of state but I would highly recommend anyone looking to pickup the guitar to consider him.

I am an older student who has played another stringed instrument for many years. Learning classical guitar is a challenge for me. Blake is patient, a good listener, and has figured out my learning pattern/learning curve. I am excited to be making good progress studying with Blake.

His teaching my 7 year old daughter the guitar was impressive to say the least. It is a shame that she lost interest in playing because she didn't want to put in the work. Her lack of passion has no reflection on his professionalism and teaching, I highly recommend him.

andrew s. Keller, TX

Teaching Style
I believe first and foremost in supporting and developing what musically inspires a student’s decision to study and play music. In order to fully develop control, musicality and understanding of the music language, it is important to focus on several components including music theory (scale and harmonic structure/function and rhythm), style, ear-training, reading and performance skills.

Expectations of Students
Like any aspect of life, consistency and patience are two very important qualities to posses when working towards a goal. The duration of each practice session is proportional to the level of the student. Learning how to practice efficiently with your instrument is key for adherence and success in obtaining your goals.

I first picked up a guitar roughly 50 years ago and tried to teach myself how to play with a chord book. I learned a lot of chords and songs from sheet music, and learned to do a fair job of playing by ear. But I was never really satisfied, and only picked up my guitar occasionally over the past 30 years. I retired recently and decided I wanted to learn to play the correct way. I did an online search for teachers in my area and found Jordan who lives close by. Jordan asked what my interest was, and I told him I wanted to learn the fundamentals and build from there. We started off with a song I was interested in, and then began working on the basics of music theory, reading and identifying notes on sheet music, and learning to play all the different scales while identifying and calling out the notes. I have a long way to go, and my older hands don't always cooperate like I want them to; but I'm also having the time of my life. I look forward to my weekly lessons and enjoy the time I spend with Jordan.

I purposely waited to review Jordan until almost a full semester of lessons. My husband and I wanted to see how his personality would 'play out' over our time knowing him, how our daughter would respond to learning at such a young age (5), and how much progress either of them would make with one another. So to answer concern #1: I had my concerns that we would see progress with Jordan't laid-back style but he has been an answer to our prayers. He has had much going on personally with work and a move and yet he stayed steadfast and awesome through it all! Regarding concern #2: in spite of the minimalist attention span of a 5 year old, Jordan has managed to engage our daughter in a realistic fashion and she has grown to eagerly look forward to practicing what she has learned - IN A SEMESTER! - and as a piano player myself, I could not be more pleased with her progress thus far. Concern #3: Jordan seems to have captured the tricky concept of accountability for a 5 year old and our daughter actually respects Mr. Jordan. We have been so pleased and look forward to continuing our lessons.
