Hello there! My name is J and music has been a part of my life since I was a young kid. I learned to play the piano when I was 8 and never stopped learning since. Eventually, I taught myself how to play the guitar and a whole new world of music opened up for me and I would love to share my knowledge with you in a fun, energetic and creative way. Hope to hear from you soon!

About Jay P.

Hello Students/Parents,

My name is J and I have been playing the piano since Elementary school and the guitar since High School. A piano upbringing instilled in me the core basics of music and music theory. Which eventually led me to teaching myself the guitar; which led to writing my own songs; which led to opening up all different kinds of music genres.

Pardon my candor but as a child my parents forced me to learn the piano and I hated it at the time. I guess it was a rebellious stage! Now, as an adult, I am most grateful to my parents for making me stick with it.

My teaching style is simple: FUN with FUNdamentals! I will help my students conquer their fears of the myth that learning music is difficult and convoluted. We will take it slow, step-by-step, and allow the student to progress naturally.

I have had my fair share of playing in recitals and concerts and the privilege of performing live in a few bands. But my rock star dreams have been laid to rest and as the saying goes, "Those who can, do; Those who can't, teach."

Nothing gives me more joy than to see someone finally "Get It!" and start to play along to one of their favorite tunes.

Thank you for your consideration. Hope to see you soon!

J

In our lessons expect intense, sweat-inducing confusion! Just kidding!
Your lesson time is YOU time. I will try my hardest to make sure the curriculum is form fitted to your skill and demand because I understand that not everyone learns the same way. All I ask of you in return is practice, practice, practice. And in a couple of months, you will see the fruits of your labor!



*** Travel Equipment ***
I will have a guitar. The student must have a guitar/piano.

*** Specialties ***
Classical on piano. Modern on guitar.

We had a first lesson today with Jay. My daughters didn’t have any experience of learning piano before, and Jay was very patient with them explaining the basics. Lots of information and we are looking forward to the next lesson!

Jay is a very good teacher, helped me progress a lot since the beginning with a little theory and a lot of practice!

Jay is a great teacher for my 9 year old son. My son is learning the basics of guitar and Jay is fun and patient. After just 5 lessons, my son is well on his way to learning his first pop song and he can't wait until his guitar lesson each week.

OMG! Such a great teacher! Jay is VERY patient, accommodating, easy going and overall NICE.

We look forward to having him come to our home to do private lessons with our 8 year old daughter every week.
He speaks her language and knows how to refocus her in such a creative, positive way.

She is learning at an accelerated rate, as Jay is really working to instill the basics so that she has a thorough understanding before moving forward. They do a lot of repetition and recall, and he leaves her with homework that she is happy to work on throughout the week.
We have booked Jay for more classes and will continue to work with him indefinitely!

Thank you for providing us the opportunity to find Jay,Take Lessons! BEST decision ever!

Exceptional teacher of both piano and guitar. Always punctual and maximizes the learning opportunity during lesson time. Connects well with students. Inspires students to be creative and take ownership of the music they are learning. Has a vision for the overall growth of his students. We are fully satisfied with Jay, and we highly recommend him.
