About Justin R.

Hi, my name is Justin. I have been a musician for about 15 years now and I've been teaching music professionally for 5 years! It's been extremely rewarding watching my students achieve their goals My passion is teaching and always will be. I'm eager to continue passing my knowledge and skills on to my students. It's astounding to find someone who has the drive and motivation to put forth the effort and I will give 100% along the way of our journey!
I'm looking for new students of all skill levels that want to proficiently advance in learning any string instrument. I work with everyone, regardless of skill level, age, or disability. I'm an extremely patient person with a very calm demeanor that seemingly gets along with everyone. I will help overcome any obstacles that come with learning an instrument.
I take a great deal of pride in helping my students feel like they can learn and progress with every lesson we have. My intentions are to have my students become the best musician they can be while having fun along the way. I have a very wide variety of genres that I study. From rock to jazz, all the way to country and hip hop! The possibilities are endless. I have worked with many styles of music and along side many different types of musicians. I'm very proud to share that I'm a studio experienced guitarist. I've also advanced in recording and editing music. This helps with those that might struggle with tempos or structures(musical composition) of songs. The first lesson we will find skill level, style, pace, and make sure that we are set up for success. I understand that everyone learns differently and we can accommodate that.
I'm very flexible with scheduling. I also don't mind taking the time to answer questions outside of the lesson. We will be a team and I want all my student's to know that they can come to me with the certainty that I will answer any questions they have to the best of my ability! I hope you feel the confidence in my teaching to take lessons with me!

Justin's enthusiasm as a guitarist and instructor is absolutely infectious. He had great insight that brought me nearly immediate improvement and showed me exercises that make practicing fun. I'm really glad to have found him!

My son is almost 9 and has been playing for about 2 years. His last teacher provided a solid foundation but Justin has taken lessons to the next level. He sets reasonable expectations but my son is more excited to practice every day because he feels challenged. So far so good. I would highly recommend.

Justin is awesome! My 8 year old daughter looks forward to his lessons every week. She has had 4 lessons so far and is progressing each week. He is extremely patient and communicates very well with her. We love that he is able to come to our home to teach. He is a great teacher and I would definitely recommend him.

Justin's making steady progress over the past 5 weeks with our now 8-year-old son, who seems to be responding well to Justin's collaborative, engaging style. He speaks to him like a partner, which I think boosts my son's confidence and motivation.

Justin is an excellent teacher to 13 year old, Christopher! He is patient with him and keeps the lessons moving and enjoyable. He challenges Christopher with new songs and skills with increasing levels of difficulty and keeps him moving forward. I would recommend Justin to any parent looking to get their child interested in the guitar and anyone looking to progress from the basics to the intermediary and advanced levels! His teaching skills are superb.

As an added bonus: Justin is a joy to work with and has been flexible with our crazy schedule when we need to move lessons around!

Justin has been teaching my 14 yr old son guitar for the last month. He has such an easiness to his personality that he has quickly developed a great connection with my son. His love for music is genuine and I can tell it is spreading to my son. He is encouraging and friendly but still maintains reasonable expectations for commitment and practice. I couldn't be happier with Justin. I would totally recommend him.
