Learn the Irish tin whistle/penny whistle!
Have you ever wanted to learn to play the lively jigs of Irish music or the haunting slow airs? I can teach you to learn the basics of this amazing instrument and move you on to special techniques in breath control and articulation. Irish/Celtic music is one of my favorite styles of music, but the pennywhistle can also play other well know tunes. Lessons will aim to give the student the musical foundation and tools they need to explore this amazing instrument. Focus on many style of music and an aim to work toward playing the student's favorites songs will be a primary goal in addition to having a lot of fun! :)
About Jason F.

I am a teacher who desires students with enthusiasm to learn. I am willing to work with all levels of gifting and am not a teacher who will make a student feel bad about mistakes, as I believe they are the secret to learning. J.S. Bach said the music was given for two purposes: the glory of God and the recreation of the human soul. I see music as a universal language because it spans all spoken languages and culture. Although I teach at an advanced level in piano, my special gift is in teaching beginning students who are inspired to learn music for themselves by my love of music and the diversity of instruments that I play and teach.

My son, 15, takes accordion and now harmonica with Jason online. He has found Jason friendly, nice and very encouraging. (His words.) Jason always takes the lessons at a good pace and slows down when he needs to slow down. He looks forward to his lessons. As mom- Jason has helped me a lot! My son’s accordion broke and Jason rolled easily to something affordable (harmonica) while we try to find a replacement. Jason has helped me with administration of the lessons thru the TakeLessons site. And sent me reminders as needed. Quick to respond and always a pleasure -!we appreciate Jason so much.

Jason has been an amazing accordion teacher for our 11 year old son and we are so thankful to have found him. Online lessons have been super easy and convenient. Jason has been fun, engaging, patient and encouraging… all of which have made this a wonderful learning experience for our son. It’s been a joy to see the progress he has made in just a few months.

Jason is a great accordion teacher. He works with me at my pace and is very encouraging. I didn't think it would be possible to learn to play online but Jason makes it work and I really enjoy working with him.

Loog Guitars
Loog guitars are an innovative approach to learning the guitar for children. They are a 3 string guitar that has the same tuning to the G,B and E strings on a full sized guitar. This allows kids to get into guitar faster and when they are ready to move up to a full sized 6 string the knowledge they learn transfers 😊🎶
