Hey there !

My name is Jefferson, I've been playing the guitar for more than 13 years and I'm passionate about music in general.
I've been teaching for about 8 years.

I started my musical journey as a teenager playing in rock n' roll bands in my hometown of Paris. I performed in some of the biggest venues in France such as The Bataclan Theater and The Olympia Hall.

After graduating from high school I attended the best Jazz Music school in Paris: IMEP College of Music and graduated with a bachelor's degree in 2016.
During my time at school I started teaching more and more students on a daily basis. I was always either learning myself or teaching people all day long. At night, I was still performing with a various number of music ensembles and bands.

After graduating from IMEP, I moved to Los Angeles to attend the Musician's Institute in Hollywood. I graduated with a Certificate in Guitar Performance in 2017.
During my time at MI I joined multiple local californian bands and I kept on doing what I was doing in my home country: playing live music every week.

I've been performing with rock n' roll artists, jazz big bands, pop singers, DJs and many more.
I have a big experience of recording sessions as well, working with solo artists, TV/movie producers, commercial companies...

I enjoy playing and teaching all music genres in general but I'm into rock, blues, jazz, hard rock, funk and electronic music especially. No matter what level you are, I’d love to help you improve your playing, technique and knowledge.

From basic chords to different chord voicings, scales, modes, exercises, finger strength, speed, arpeggios, reading, music theory or ear training, I look forward teaching you and sharing passion for music!
