Jake is a fantastic teacher. He is enthusiastic about the subject matter, and is excited to see you progress and grow as a player. He tailors the lessons to your goals and is pretty much game for whatever you want to focus on.

Since Mandolin is his focus as a musician, he has practical experience and knowledge on the instrument that helps us learn theory in a relatable fashion and has endless tips and tricks to help you grow.

Highly recommended!

Chaz really focuses on the detail, theory and groundwork necessary to excel in music. If you are lucky enough to get your child started with him you will never regret the experience. He is simply the best! My son sings all the time now and loves to play piano. I am so happy for my son to have found someone to expand on his talents!"
