Elisse Johnson
Learning music can be overwhelming but Jesse made the process equal parts exciting, artistic, and intellectual. He is able to explain concepts better than any music teacher I have ever had (and I have tried many). He was able to meet me where I was at, inspire me when I was struggling and encourage me when I was excelling. I look forward to my lesson with Jesse every week and he has guided me from being a hopeful, dejected fangirl to being a confident, well-rounded musician.
Jeremy
I'm so happy with how fast I have advanced learning to play. What I like the most is that I have been learning chord theory, technique, practice methods, and music theory, all at the same time. Jesse makes it easy to assimilate all this information by gauging your progress and giving you only the information you need to succeed.
Haley
I started learning how to play the guitar 3 years ago and I hit a plateau with my playing. Finally signed up to take lessons and I’ve been studying with Jesse for 7 months now and made more progress during this time than I had in the first 2.5 years of playing! He is always prompt, professional, and does a fantastic job teaching online (which can be very challenging for problem-solving). He is also a very caring teacher and wants his students to get what they want out of lessons. Highly recommend him as a teacher!

Chase and I worked together doing online lessons for guitar for a number of months. Chase is an incredible instructor. He helped me understand how to analyze and replicate my music tastes in a super effective way. His teachings on improvisation definitely brought out the best in my playing. I would highly recommend learning from Chase, whether you are a beginner or expert.
Nichole Coyne
Chase and I did not work together long because of other commitments. However, in the short time we did work together I learned a lot. Chase is easy going, highly skilled, very patient, and his teaching style is such that it fosters student confidence. I was really nervous at first, because I wasn't sure what to expect. Chase quickly made me feel at ease during the lesson. We only had half hour lessons, but that was definitely enough time to learn new materiel and make progress. I highly recommend him for guitar lessons.

My son is 7 and really seems to like Chase. He came well prepared and finally someone has started to teach him some rock songs .

He was always patient and quick to point out progress. He starts with the basics and builds on that knowledge so you know both theory and technique. Every week brings a new challenge to improve, expand and grow. All with Frankie’s wonderful guidance."

"Tom and I have had 2 sessions together now and I feel great about how they have gone. I have taken a few guitar lessons in the past with another instructor and he just does not compair to Tom's style of instruction. What I mean by that is Tom was able to assess exactly where my skill level, understanding, and rate of retension rather quickly apposed to waisting my time we were able to start exactly where I needed to. From there, I was astonished with how much knowledge Tom has of music theory and his skill of explaining it each step of the way. I'm excited to continue my lesssons with him! I already feel I'm going to be exonentially better in no time at all :)"

I'm 63 years old and I'm just trying to learn to play some Jazz & Blues and after several years of jumping all over the place with web lessons and really learning nothing; I think I've finally found a teacher who can help me learn to play guitar.
