Hi! I've been playing guitar and with bands for over 15 years. I started on upright bass and played in an orchestra before moving onto jazz band, and then eventually taught myself guitar. The last band I was in toured and recorded all over the country before moving to Seattle. Songwriting is my greatest passion. If you have any interest in writing your own songs, I'd be more than happy to help. I'm comfortable with multiple genres and with electric or acoustic guitar. We can come up with a lesson plan together, or I can plan something myself based on your needs. Thank you!

About Jack U.

I play guitar, upright & electric bass, and piano. I've played in multiple bands throughout my life. I moved to Seattle with my band from Ann Arbor in 2016. We played Indie Psych Rock and were influenced by bands like Talking Heads, The Strokes, and David Bowie. We had the privilege of recording a single with Steve Albini(Nirvana) and an EP with Gordon Raphael(The Strokes). We toured the east coast multiple times before deciding to make a change and move out to Seattle.

My first Instrument was upright bass in middle school, then I started to explore electric bass, and took up guitar shortly after. Songwriting is the most important part of music to me, and would love to help people learn how to start writing their own songs in addition to playing guitar. Although I’ve played in mostly rock bands, I’ve explored learning guitar and writing songs in all different genres, and would feel comfortable helping you learn whatever genre/style that you’re passionate about.

I graduated from film school in Michigan before moving to the west coast. I wrote and directed several short films and entered them into film festivals all over the country. My love of film and music influence each other constantly. I love telling stories through my songs. I'm excited to help people figure out how to play what it is they're passionate about. I've run into so many roadblocks throughout my time creating music, and I feel that I can relate and help with most of the problems you may be facing with guitar or songwriting.
