About Jay B.

I have been performing for over 40 years and teaching professionally for nearly twenty years. I started in folk music playing coffeehouses as a teen. I then played in rock, blues and country bands through my twenties and thirties as guitarist and singer in the Washington DC area. I always had a interest in jazz and began to learn the standards which then led to working on sight reading and music theory. I perform in the Rehoboth Beach, DE. area with my jazz, blues & R&B group Trio Blue I also perform solo jazz guitar. I also play duo gigs my friend John on sax and clarinet, playing traditional and gypsy jazz. I began teaching in January of 2001 in music stores in the DC area and continue until present. I love teaching. People ask me "doesn't it take a lot of patience?" and the answer is yes, but if a student is trying, regardless of what level they're at, I love to nurture that interest and desire and to see them gain confidence and new abilities. Teaching is an awesome undertaking that benefits student and teacher. Thank you for reading. I hope we can meet soon! Thanks, Jay

Have worked continuously for the last nearly twenty years teaching guitar and also bass and occasionally ukulele. I have always had a high retention rate with most students staying with me for 4 or 5 years and some up to10 or more.
