Guitar is a beautiful and intricate instrument. There is much more to music and guitar then just theory and scales, there is an art that comes along with playing. Anyone can pick up and play a guitar, but not everyone sounds great doing so. I will teach you how to sound great while building your chops and skills.

About Jesse W.

Hi, My name is Jesse. I discovered my passion in music when I was 15 and saw another student playing guitar in school. Ever since I received my first guitar at age 16, I was hooked. Not a day went by that I didn't pick up the instrument and pour my energy and soul into my playing.

I specialize in teaching students how to unleash their creativity while also following a disciplined learning method. Music is meant to be fun, creative, and expressive, and I help students find this passion. After discovering their passion, practice and honing their skills will lead to more professional ventures and possibly a career!

Specialties: Guitar, Leads, Rhythms, Fingerpicking, Solos, Improvisation, Recording, Songwriting.

I am excited to be teaching again in Central Florida after recently returning from traveling abroad. I haven't been on TakeLessons.com since 2014, so I am grateful to be back!
Please feel free to write me for any questions you may have.

Jesse has been a fantastic teacher for my Son. He is very patient and adapts to the pace of the student. Apart from just teaching my son music , I am seeing some good personality improvements as a result of his interactions with Jesse.

Thanks

My son feels That He is going to do well playing the guitar , now that He has worked with Jessie. Jessie allows you to play your own style of music. Give it a few lessons, and give Jessie a try.
