My lessons are focused on enabling the student to participate as a guitar player immediately. With a rigorous focus on building finger strength through the use of scales and exercises, my students transition to effective chord playing sooner than most. My lessons are structured to inspire my students to truly want to do the hard work needed to become a proficient guitarist. We begin with a short study of scales and key signatures, immediately followed by improvisation using the scales we embrace starting with our first lesson. The ability to play a guitar "solo" during the first lesson has always been an effective way to inspire my students to continue learning vigorously. The remainder of my lesson is song playing together with my student, beginning with basic chord structure songs and - over time - building our understanding of chords in general by playing more complicated progressions. With the focus being mostly playing songs, my students start building an excellent repertoire immediately.

The music theory I teach is that which I find necessary and useful for all guitarists. And I teach it in a way that is easy to understand, embrace and apply.

I give my students excellent tools to enable their musical journey and allow them to continue learning between our lessons. And I am always available for questions.

Overall, my lessons are fun, inspiring and geared to enable my students to learn at their own pace, whether fast or slow.

"I cannot believe how quickly you can learn to play guitar when you study with Jeremy. He inspires you through his breathtaking musicality, the warmth of his personality, and his ability to create joy every moment you are with him. You love playing from the very first lesson, and then, suddenly, you're no longer a beginner!" -Judith

"I had always wanted to take guitar lessons but never got around to it until I turned 40. Since starting up with Jeremy I've progressed more than I could have ever imagined and in such a short amount of time. Jeremy's musical talents are second to none but his ability to pass that on to his students is why you won't find a better teacher. You don't realize how much you're learning because you're having too much fun playing music. That's what music lessons should be about." -Tony
