I have been teaching private lessons since 2009. I have helped students learn how to play guitar and piano in a variety of styles.
As an academic instructor, I instruct the youth of the NYCDOE to pass regents examinations in U.S. History and Global History. I am also special education certified so that I can meet the needs of all learners!
I received my training at Lehman college from 2008-2012 where I received a degree in music and later a graduate degree in Education from Hunter College. As an expert in my field, I look forward to helping new students achieve their goals.

· Test Prep · In home Jake has been a great figure and mentor throughout the years. Would highly recommend to any parents looking to bring quality education to their kids.
· Guitar · In studio I highly recommend! I got my first guitar 2 years ago and reached out to Jake for lessons. He is very knowledgeable and a patient teacher. I learned how to play my favorite song by The Beatles in a little over 2 months!
· Piano · In home Mr. Ruiz started teaching my son the piano in 2009 when my child was only 5yrs old. He came highly recommended by his Music Professor at Lehman College. He managed to get my son enthused about music at such a young age. He made lessons fun. Thanks greatly to Mr. Ruiz's genuine encouragement and patient coaching, my son continues to study and enjoy the instrument today. Thanks Jake!
