About Jesse M.

Study guitar with me at the top-rated guitar school in Oregon. I specialize in helping students reach their potential; if you are excited to learn guitar, I want you in our community!

I'm Jesse, co-owner and full-time instructor. I am 100% dedicated to the craft of teaching guitar and am here to support my students through their guitar journey.

Did guitar lessons or learning from Youtube leave you feeling somewhat incomplete in the past? I actually hear that all the time, and it's probably because you would benefit more from professional instruction. Most of us need an organized and methodical method for learning guitar, and that is exactly what I will provide to you in lessons. My students are put on an easy to follow, step by step path for progressing on the guitar. You'll learn proper techniques for playing the instrument, learn how to understand the fretboard, and play the kind of music you've always wanted to.

If you take a look at my reviews, you'll see that we have a great track record of helping students achieve their goals, and most importantly, enjoying the process! I know you and I will have a great time during the process, and you'll be able to rest easy knowing that your playing is improving week after week.

Working together, we’ll get you on a track where you have fun, make consistent progress, and have all of the support and resources you need to explore and grow in every area of music that you are interested in. What could be better than that?

I currently have space on my schedule for socially distanced in-person lessons, as well as online lessons via Skype, Zoom, or Discord. My studio is conveniently located near SE 9th and SE Main Street in Portland.

Looking forward to working with you,

Jesse M.

Learning music can be overwhelming but Jesse made the process equal parts exciting, artistic, and intellectual. He is able to explain concepts better than any music teacher I have ever had (and I have tried many). He was able to meet me where I was at, inspire me when I was struggling and encourage me when I was excelling. I look forward to my lesson with Jesse every week and he has guided me from being a hopeful, dejected fangirl to being a confident, well-rounded musician.

I'm so happy with how fast I have advanced learning to play. What I like the most is that I have been learning chord theory, technique, practice methods, and music theory, all at the same time. Jesse makes it easy to assimilate all this information by gauging your progress and giving you only the information you need to succeed.

I started learning how to play the guitar 3 years ago and I hit a plateau with my playing. Finally signed up to take lessons and I’ve been studying with Jesse for 7 months now and made more progress during this time than I had in the first 2.5 years of playing! He is always prompt, professional, and does a fantastic job teaching online (which can be very challenging for problem-solving). He is also a very caring teacher and wants his students to get what they want out of lessons. Highly recommend him as a teacher!
