Here's a little about me: I play sax for the band Fungus Amungus. I also play sax/piano in several bands in Hilton Head. I have previously been band/chorus director at Battery Creek, EP High, St Raphael Academy and a lot of schools in MA. I play piano, sax, drums, trumpet and other instruments... I have performed on stage with members of the Grateful Dead and the Allman Brothers, and I have opened for Violent Femmes, Spin Doctors, Rusted Root, Michael Franti and many more...
About Jarrod V.

My name is Jarrod V. I am a graduate of the University of Rhode Island Music Program. I currently teach music in Beaufort County, SC. I also perform in many local bands, including Lowcountry Jam, Soundboy, the Storks, White Liquor, 2 Sons, etc. I have previously performed on stage with members of the Grateful Deal and the Allman Brothers. I have also opened for acts such as P-Funk, Buddy Guy, the Violent Femmes, Michael Franti, Johnny Winter and the Spin Doctors. If you are looking to master your instrument and learn how to perform on stage, I am the right teacher for you! I feel I have a great deal of enthusiasm and knowledge to offer to my students, and if given the opportunity, I will make a great musician out of you! *** Lesson Details *** Through my lessons, you will learn music theory, music history and music performance. I am very outgoing, personable and friendly, and I will motivate you to be a great musician! I have experience with piano, voice, drums, trumpet, saxophone and many other instruments... we can work on everything from stage presence to mastering your instrument to playing different instruments and becoming a versatile musician. I have access to a great library of music books, theory and history worksheets and other literature that will help us attain rock-star status! If you are looking for a fun, motivating, professional teacher, you have found the right guy! *** Studio Equipment *** I have access to keyboards, saxophones, piano and basic drum equipment, as well as internet access and speakers for listening. It is a great environment to learn and play! *** Travel Equipment *** I have some drum equipment, books, pencils/paper, keyboards, saxophone... I would expect the student to invest in a workbook, maybe an inexpensive keyboard for practice purposes (for piano lessons), and other items depending on what we are studying. I can provide most of the materials, though. *** Specialties *** I am great with JAZZ/FUNK MUSIC, as well as CLASSICAL. I have a lot of experience teaching MUSIC THEORY/MUSIC HISTORY

Jarrod is a great instructor! From the first lesson, our son (11) was excited and engaged! He even play his trumpet for fun ! As a parent, I am pleased with the balanced instruction/practice ratio that has instilled responsibility and dedication without being overwhelming and frustrating. Jarrod teaches at a student's pace,while adding just the right amount of challenge, allowing confidence to grow in a well organized,fun and personalized instruction plan. What I like most is; Jarrod loves music and teaching! He addresses success and challenges with enthusiasm, support and encouragement,equally.
