I've been teaching in the Louisville area for nearly six years and have worked with over 100 clients for over 5,000 lessons. I've worked with students of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Whether you're looking to learn to play an instrument you've always wanted to play, learn how to play some of your favorite songs, or just want to learn for fun, I'm here to help you!

*** Lesson Details ***
I enjoy teaching all ages and abilities, from 5-year-old beginners to advanced students who'd like fine tuning. I'm relaxed and laid back while encouraging you to reach your potential. Whether you're an absolute beginner or a seasoned expert in need of some fine tuning, I'll carefully evaluate your strengths and weakness and create a lesson plan suited to your individual learning style, interests and needs. We'll discuss where you'd like to go with music, and I'll help you get there! After 3 or 6 months with me, you'll learn the musical foundations of rhythm, ear training, posture, technique, music theory and performance, and maybe a few of your favorite songs!

Jared got to know my grandaughter quickly. He saw how smart she is, and howshe picks up on things at a fast pace. Autumn is six, and loves to sing, yet has a slight speech impediment. She's looking forward to her next visit, and is excited for a future in music. Thanks Jared ! See you Saturday!

Jared is an excellent teacher. I am 62 and took lessons from Jared for about 6 months. He individualizes his lessons, he is very knowledgeable in every aspect of music. He communicates and gives as much or as little information as you desire. We also covered a lot of theory as part of the lessons which I enjoyed.

He has a nice manor and is respectful.
I recommend him highly.

The whole concept of "take lessons" is a winner

Jared is outstanding as a knowledgable professional teacher. I'm learning to sing after putting it off for many years. Not only has Jared brought me along nicely with encouragement and instruction but he has helped me enormously wth my speaking voice.

Wonderfully knowledgeable and kind

Jared has done a terrific job targeting the needs of my thirteen year old twins. He is always punctual, upbeat and very task oriented which is so helpful. The kids love what they are learning. Overall, it has been a wonderful experience.
