My name is Jared.
I teach music lessons in Nashville, I teach students from ages 6 to 65.
I can teach drums, piano, guitar, bass and other instruments, for just about any style including pop, rock and classical.
I have Bachelor of Arts in Music from Arizona State University, where I specialized in Guitar performance. I'm a firm believer that playing music and learning an instrument should be fun, and I try to emphasize that in every lesson I teach. The curriculum that I use is entirely tailored to the student, based off of their needs and skill level, as well as the style of music they listen to. I have a simple approach to learning a new instrument, you get what you put into it.
If you take lessons with me, I will make it my goal to see you get excited about learning an instrument and utilizing your own creativity!
*** Lesson Details ***
We will start with the basics of any instrument in the first lesson. From there, I gauge the students ability to pick up on the music and his/her playability, thus tailoring the curriculum around their abilities, passions, and desires for the future of their instrument-playing.
Typically within the first 2 lessons, the student is playing songs that they have wanting to play, and maybe thought would be too hard.
The best thing to bring to me as a student or parent is a list of songs or artist that the students likes to listen to and would like to play.
*** Studio Equipment ***
living room, 3 couches, drum set, guitars, amps...parents can sit in anytime.
*** Specialties ***
I can teach jazz, blues and rock style guitar and bass. On drums, I can teach a student rock and blues, funk and pop music, and some mild jazz. I know scales, modes, and still have many music theory books from college that I pull from for teaching.
This guy knows his stuff. I've worked with Jared for nearly a month, and in that short time, I have made "leaps and bounds" on drums. Great for beginners, intermediate, or advanced. What I like best is that he is very customizable to your skill level. Highly recommended.
Jared is nice, enthusiastic and very patient. He explains clearly and always try his best how to improve my weaknesses. I've enjoyed taking his lessons!
