I graduated from the Musicians Institute in '07,and currently perform in the popular band Tainted Love. My main objective is to give all my students the direction they need to become the best musician they can be. I know every student is different and learns at a different rate. I create each lesson specific to the students needs. Playing music can be a lot of work but my main focus is to remember to have fun doing it!
*** Lesson Details ***
All lessons include curriculum that will be for the student to keep. I will start each student's lessons based on their level. I also can give tips on technical issues, performance. I will help in any area that is needed.

I play lead guitar for the popular 80s group tainted love.
Jeff knows his stuff and is a nice guy too. He has a deep understanding of the fretboard and if your into classic rock to modern pop, he can show you what's happening in a song.
Excellent teacher for kids
Jeff has been teaching beginning guitar to my 7 year old daughter for about 6 months now. He has excellent rapport with kids and keeps her engaged and interested while she learns. That's a tall order for my daughter, who is easily distracted and generally doesn't like to "stick with" things. She loves going to guitar lessons, enjoys learning new notes and chords and practicing what she's learned. I attribute her enthusiasm to Jeff's engagement - just the right level of challenge while making it fun for her.
Jeff is also very flexible around scheduling, and very reliable. Easy to get in touch for last minute schedule changes, and extremely responsive.
