Teaching since:

When he is not touring the world with his band Dead Poet Society, Jack is enjoying teaching his students guitar. Jack has had nearly a decade of teaching experience and continues to help students thrive at any skill level. His methods are relaxed but meticulous, and modeled after his very learnings at Berklee College of Music. Students love learning with Jack. They instantly appreciate his motivating and calm attitude. Jack takes different approaches for each student. Ones that strive to be music theory savants will go the long route through method books and rigorous theory. Others who wish to explore the instrument before deciding whether or not to commit serious time to it, will be treated with a fun, explorative atmosphere. He has taught students as young as five and as old as sixty-five, and makes sure to enjoy every lesson as much as his students do.

We love Jack! Wish he could still be with us on the east :-(. Was great with our son Michael!

I've been fan of Jack's band for a number of years. It was great to finally get a lesson from him. Expect to be doing more over the next year.

Jack was great with Chris. With him all throughout middle school and beginning of high school. We saw great improvement throughout the years.

Absolutely the best instructor ever. Jack has been with me for three years now, just on skype. I have to say he's the most comfortable and patient teacher I've ever had.
