Teaching since:
January 2000

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.

Acoustic Guitar · In home

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.
