Through private instruction I seek to find the best ways of communicating with my students. My approach is based in the belief that each student has his/her own unique preferred communication style. Getting to really know our students, learning what their goals are, understanding their preferred communication style, and understanding how they best understand concepts. All of these things I work to try know because I feel it helps me be more successful as a teacher

About Jason

Jason is a true master of his craft, and an excellent teacher as well. I took guitar lessons with Jason from the time I was 12 until I was 18, and he developed me into the guitar player I am today. I have played lead guitar in multiple bands over the years since, recorded in professional studios, and have played shows all over the state of Ohio. Regardless of the situation, however, I still find myself leaning on the core concepts and unique styles that Jason taught me. He doesn't just pull inspiration from one genre, but empowers his students to blend aspects of all music together in pursuit of their own artistic expression. He also does a great job of developing newer guitar players by first establishing a strong base of knowledge, and then encouraging them to find their own sound. Jason brings the energy of the all time greats such as Jimmy Page and Eddie Van Halen; when you hear him play guitar, you can't help but listen. When combined with his strong talent for teaching and relating to others, the result is quite impressive. Whether you're a first time player looking to get started, or a seasoned professional looking to bounce ideas around, you can't go wrong with Jason Livengood!

I absolutely loved taking lessons from James. I was just coming off of a long break from acting when I found him, and I’m so thankful that I did. He gave me the confidence boost that I needed to push onward in my training. Since he has experience in the industry, he was able to tell me (truthfully) what I need to expect when my career takes off someday. That aside, we read through screenplays, did some accent work, improved a bit before every class, and talked about the power of positivity/confidence. I learned a little bit of everything from him. If you’re looking to get started on your path to an acting career, James is definitely your guy! He’ll do whatever he can to prepare you for your crazy journey through the industry.

Where do I start, Mr. Walsh is an amazing coach and even better person. His classes extend beyond what he is teaching you, with life insights and showing you how to free your mind and be more positive on a daily basis.

"Ryan was great! He's obviously a talented guitarist and he is very laid back and makes you feel comfortable. He shows you in detail what you need to do to become a better guitar player. My ONLY advice, and the reason he doesn't get 5 stars, is I think he should have more visual aids with his lessons. For example, write down the different scales or transcribe the first several measures of a song. Then, one has something to refer back to when you are practicing and invariably get stuck. Other than that, I would highly recommend Ryan as a guitar teacher!"

"Ryan has definitely opened up my perspective with regard to learning my instrument and "hearing" tonal options for music I like to play. I'm a working Dad with very limited time for lessons and practice, so an online learning platform has worked best for me. Ryan has been very accommodating and flexible. More than that, he's been extremely patient with my learning style. In addition to opening up my instrument for me, he's fostered a passion for learning guitar and a taste for new music that I may not have listened to/learned otherwise. I love music and because of Ryan, I've found a very heartfelt, almost tangible, passion for playing it. Ryan...thank you!!"

"Andrea has been the best teacher I’ve ever had, hands down! I have been playing guitar for a few years now and had learned some licks on my own, but Andrea really helped me understand how to incorporate these licks and make my own using different chord progressions. He also taught me that it’s not always about how many notes you play, but the feel and meaning behind every note that matters."
