My name is Jacqueline W. I am a classical guitarist and guitar teacher in Hawthorne, NJ. I am a graduate of the Manhattan School of Music with a B.M. in classical guitar performance, and am currently completing my masters in guitar performance. Additionally, I have attended and completed Level 1 of the Orff-Schulwerk music education program, and am pursuing my certification in teaching the Suzuki method.
I have been teaching guitar for over ten years. I teach most styles, so we can discuss the type of music you'd like to play and work from there. Regardless of style, we would work on guitar technique, reading music, and playing by ear. I usually recommend one hour lessons, once a week.
· Classical Guitar · In home Jackie is a wonderful teacher! I know a few chords from high school, but not nearly enough to teach myself any more than that, so it's really awesome to have Jackie. Her feedback is helpful and she's very patient in helping me to learn and augment my skills. She seems invested in my own growth as a guitarist and I feel motivated to practice. It's so great to hear myself really improving!
· Acoustic Guitar · In home She was understanding and patient with me as a student with 0 experience. The way she taught was easy to understand and treated me as an equal rather than as a another student. I would definitely recommend!
· Classical Guitar · In home Had a wonderful experience with Jackie as my teacher. Sadly my family moved out of the area so I could not continue, but she was extremely patient and versatile, and really helped me develop guitar skills that I still practice.
