Music instructor for the Praise Band program at Lucas Christian Academy. In this role, I work with middle school and high school students & I help teach multiple instruments including drums, bass, guitar, & piano.
Jared is an amazing teacher. He is patient, he is encouraging and he has some mad skills. He makes my son excited about drums, and if you ever get a chance to see him perform, you will see his passion for drums and awesome talent.
Jared is a fantastic teacher and has a gift for making you feel encouraged yet showing you how to improve at the same time. The drum lesson I took was probably the best musical lesson I have ever taken.
Jared is a great instructor! Ive been playing drums for a few years and I still got a lot to learn. Thanks to Jared ive been able to improve my drumming ability and knowledge. I would recommend Jared to any beginner, intermediate, and or advanced drummer. You wont regret it!
Jared Chontos is a very well rounded musician, and an excellent drum teacher. He is very patient, and very good at explaining things. I am by no means a drummer, and I have problems with rhythm, but he was able to teach me the fundamentals, and how to keep a beat and simple drum groove.
I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!
Although I went into my lesson nervous, Jared put me right at ease with his patient and kind demeanor. His chops are uncanny and his talent is apparent. I LOVED my lessons with him - what a great guy to learn from.
