About Jeff S.

Accoustic and electric guitar, electric bass, mandolin, dobro, harmonica (harp), recording and live performance. Proficient in most styles. *** Lesson Details *** My philosophy is simple: You will learn more quickly if you are enjoying yourself. This isn't math class, it's music. I will teach you the fundamentals, of-course, but along with the basics I will emphatically stress ear training. As you learn to trust your ear, you will gain confidence and will ultimately be a more proficient and well rounded player.I will encourage you to progress at your optimum speed with mutually agreed upon goals. After six months of dedicated study, you should be playing songs, jamming with others and have the ability to listen to a song and play along with your guitar. *** Specialties *** Rock, blues, fusion,r&b, folk, country, bluegrass, prog. and most other contemporary styles. If a student brings in a DVD I am able to listen and assimilate the music. I am not competent in classical guitar.

Great teacher and confidence builder Jeff makes every lesson fun. He is a wizard on the guitar and can accompany me on virtually any song. Lessons are very enjoyable.

Great teacher!! Jeff is very patient and very complimentary. He pushes me without me even realizing that I'm being pushed! We have a great time during my lessons and the time flies by! I wish I lived close enough to take my lessons in person with him, that's the only drawback, the online sharing can be a bit limited. If you're looking for a great guitar teacher, Jeff is your guy!

Jeff understands how to motivate a student...great teacher Jeff is clearly a very good musician himself, and he's a great teacher. My 9 year old son has taken an interest in harmonica and Jeff is very good at teaching, explaining, and still allowing my son to explore his imagination within the discipline of music. He strikes a great balance between instruction, encouragement and keeping my son on task. We will continue to enjoy our lessons and we highly recommend Jeff.
