My lessons are completely based around you! What do want to learn? What do you want to accomplish? Do you want to start with the basics, or learn something new that will get you excited about guitar again? From basic to more advanced guitar practices, it could be as simple as wanting to learn your favorite song or breaking down the scale behind your favorite solo. Tell me what inspires you. I'm here to make you happy with your playing!

About Jacob B.

I started playing piano when I was 5, guitar when I was 8, and I've been singing most of my life. I play in a band with two friends I've known since way back then - we wrote music then, and we still do now. I took guitar lessons until I was 12 or so, learned bass guitar and sharpened my skills throughout middle school jazz & concert band, and went on to play in the high school jazz band. After I graduated high school, I auditioned at a bunch of schools around my hometown. I was accepted into music school at UMass Lowell, where I gained knowledge about music theory and eventually integrated these concepts into my guitar playing and songwriting. I moved to Boston and lived there for two years with my lifelong friends and bandmates, went to trade school and got certified to record music, and now live in NY with the band.

Experience

Stage Technician
Sep 2014 - Dec 2015

University of Massachusetts Lowell Music Department

On the job, I worked with a crew of student technicians to produce all of UMass Lowell Music Departments’ performances. We planned and executed efficient on-stage changes, including light fixtures, stage shells, risers, stands, and chairs. We worked together to assemble and operate a live sound system.

Certifications

Advanced Audio Engineering
Aug 2018

The Recording Connection

I studied mixing, session management & editing. My time there involved consulting with musicians in real time to determine and execute the concept and objective of their music. Mixing and engineering music required identifying feedback, sonic, or patch-related issues on the fly; audio errors such as digital artifacts, broken audio files, etc.
