To put it in simple words: Godly teacher

To go deeper:
I started lessons with Jared in 2021. After a year of playing, I felt pretty confident but limited. I hit a plateau and couldn't better my playing, or increase my speed. I couldn't solo at all, I had no music theory, and my technique was terrible.

I booked lessons with Jared, and on the first day he started to correct my technique as point out my mistakes and how to correct them. He didn't throw difficult topics or theory at me, but built my skill and knowledge slowly.

Jared has always went into depth and always checked for understanding. He has never been condescending and has always been kind. He's always made our lessons fun, I've always enjoyed them.

If you are looking to get lessons, Jared is an amazing choice, and you will definitely get your money's worth.

I've had 5 lessons with Jared so far and had to get more! I have been learning a lot while also having fun!

With each one of my students, I take into account how much time they are willing to practice, what genres interest them, and what learning style works best (for example, I've found that music theory makes things click faster for some people and saps all the enjoyment out of learning an instrument for others). I then come up with a structured lesson plan that is specifically catered to their needs.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me. Look forward to hearing from you soon!

I've been taking lessons for a little over 2 yeara, and what I love the most about Jonah is that he's so flexible. Not only does he respond quickly to communication and schedule changes, he is also willing to change up the lesson plan if something isn't working or is too difficult. He is very supportive as well, and encourages you to practice without being incredibly demanding. Overall, best teacher I've ever had.

"Greg sold me my first acoustic guitar at 13 years old. It was a fender acoustic and I bought it with no knowledge and he pushed me towards an acoustic guitar he felt was quality and a great starter guitar. I taught myself for a couple of years and than my parents let me get guitar lessons When I was 16. I was really into heavy metal music, yet Greg made sure I knew the basics. His lessons were very individualized and made sure that when I was learning the basics that I knew what I was working towards. I remember one lesson he gave me a riff to work with, after I had it down he revealed to me that it was Miley's party in the USA. He showed me a song I wasn't interested in learning and taught me how I can make it into a genre that appealed to me. I told Greg that I was really interested In guitar upkeep and he taught me how he cleans guitars and does adjustments in his shop. Greg Campbell takes the time with his students and makes sure he his teaching them in what they are interested in, yet at the same time makes sure the basics are hammered home and are appreciated."

Jazz, blues, and country musicians began experimenting with this loud and edgy instrument, and it soon became a staple in the rock ’n’ scene. Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, Keith Richards, and Jimmy Page were just a few of the electric guitarists who took the instrument to a whole new level.
