Hey, I'm Jeremiah. I was born & raised in Los Angeles, CA & have been playing guitar for over 17 years now. I have played in numerous shows around the country as well as many live shows in Europe. Over the years, I have learned many different styles of guitar as well as many different types of musical composition from all different types of people and genres.



*** Lesson Details ***
I have taught many students over time & the one consistent fear or problem they had was "Patience". They feared, as most teachers tend to do on many occasions, that I wasn't going to be patient with them. That I was going to be hard on them when they didn't know a particular answer but that's not what I feel learning an instrument is about. I feel that playing your instrument should come from the heart & not the mind. Meaning, do not assume that you know nothing but know that you can understand everything.
What I want my students to take from my lessons is a sense of understanding on how their instrument works. How each note functions with one another. How to properly place your hand to harmonize & sustain a note. I also teach my students basic chord-progression exercises to practice their finger strength & dexterity. Each of my students receive a homework assignment per lesson so they can practice in between scheduled times..

I have both my kids taking music lessons with Jeremiah. He's been a wonderful teacher so far, very patient with kids, he knows how to talk to them and get them excited about playing an instrument.

You Rock!!!

Our son is so excited for his lessons that he actually practices all week long. Jeremiah is certainly capturing his attention. We are very pleased with our sons progress.

Great Teacher

For the short period that he's been teaching my kids, I think he really knows his craft. Very patient, nice and well mannered. He works well with us, specially at times at times that I have to do some last minute changes.We like him.
