Teaching since:

Hi fellow musicians! I am a professional touring musician, songwriter, and recording artist based in Austin, TX. I graduated magna cum laude with a degree in Mandolin Performance and a minor in American Roots Music from Berklee College of Music in Boston.

Every musician has their own voice in this world. I want to work with you to mold and develop that voice with solid fundamentals and understanding of how music works. We will go over music theory and how it applies to the mandolin and we will also touch on the mechanics of being a great mandolin player. All these things can lead to being the best musician you can be!

Learned more in an hour than in the past 4 months with my previous instructor. Great lesson! I am very excited to learn from Jake.

Jake has helped me learn so much- everything from general musicality, to theory, and learning new tunes. Very inspiring guy and a great musician and teacher!
