I want to start by asking you a few questions...
What are some of the biggest challenges/problems you are facing with your instrument or voice right now?
What things have you tried to overcome your current challenges up until now, and why have they not worked for you?
If you and I start working together, what is the number 1 obstacle that you want me to help you overcome in the next 90 days?
Think these things over a bit.
Hi I'm Jake.
I'm an Artist | Musician | Educator | Performance - Coach. I began my coaching career nearly 20 years ago. I write songs, play guitar and sing in the band
O L A M. I also write and record music for film and TV.
I coach guitar, voice, and songwriting in one-on-one, group, clinic, and band settings as well as artist development in private & professional studios from Indianapolis to Chicago to Nashville, as well as online.
I began playing guitar at a very early age (8), and studied with various instructors throughout my youth and teenage years before attending IUPUI and Guitar Institute as well as studying Berklee's songwriting courses, Speech Level Singing, CVT vocal method, and Scream vocal technique. I'm also a Life Coach and practitioner of NLP, HNLP and Time-Based Therapy with a high focus on Self-Image Psychology for artist development for musicians & artists of all kinds.
I use a unique-to-you approach in my coaching sessions. Using Life-Coaching practices in musical sessions allows me to dive deeper into goal setting and achievement for greater outcomes in your overall artistic expression and success.
My goal is to help you meet your goal(s) as quickly, accurately, and as efficiently as possible. I strive to coach for fast, meaningful, fulfilling, lasting results that you can actually use and apply in practical, real world musical situations for years to come.
Your friend and coach,
