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!

I've been teaching beginning guitar lessons off and on for 15 years. I like to give students the basic elements of chords, scales, picking, and strumming so that they can get to work creating their own music or playing the music they like. Start with no musical background, or build upon your musical knowledge you've gained from other instruments.

About Andrew

I've been playing the drums for over 30 years and the guitar for over 20. I'm currently accepting beginning and intermediate drum students and beginning guitar students. I studied percussion in college, although I did not earn my degree in music. I was the Drumline Captain at Ricks College (Now B

Andy is an excellent instructor.

My 14 year old son had been playing drums for an hour or more every day for several months, and was making fair progress. He was convinced he could learn the drums on his own. But between his first and second lesson he improved exponentially. We were clearly going down the right path.

While my son was uncomfortable with the idea of taking lessons from someone he didn’t really know, Andy established a strong rapport with him by the end of lesson 1. And he was very eager to come back for lesson 2.

We intend to continue lessons with Andy for the foreseeable future.

Hey there!
My passions are technique and accuracy; by perfecting technique comes a deeper understanding of theory. I have lots of teaching methods that will encourage you to play your favorite songs and styles with the sounds you like.
I'll focus on the very basics of guitar theory in order to get to a higher level of understanding music theory.
I will challenge you! We will have lots of fun and you will see, hear, and feel your own improvements with my teachings.

About Shai

If you are fascinated about guitar technique and awesome weird sounds that you can do with your guitar, you will like having lessons with me. I began as a classical guitar player, studying traditional classical pieces and applying them to my guitar. During that time I began to explore and became
