Hi, my name is Jacob B. I offer music lessons in your home for all ages in the Seattle area. Reading music is optional. My primary instruments are piano and guitar, but I also teach keyboards, bass, drums, cello, violin, banjo, ukelele, and mandolin. I've played for 25 years and taught for 12. My beautiful wife and I are transplants from Kansas City.

WHAT'S YOUR MUSICAL FINGERPRINT?
My job is to help each student figure that out.
I teach in lots of musical styles, including rock, pop, jazz, blues, bluegrass, classical, and traditional ethnic styles, while also incorporating ear training, improvisation, and songwriting.
There are as many different types of students as there are styles of music. Learning to play can be creative and intuitive as well as logical and intellectual — there are many paths to musical success. The bottom line is that when students ENJOY learning music, they don't quit.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide myself and any teaching materials. They provide an instrument and their brains.
