Overview

My name is Lauren Jones and I am a classical guitarist living in Memphis, Tennessee. I graduated from Liberty University in December of 2015 with a degree in classical guitar performance. I will be starting my masters degree in classical guitar performance at the University of Memphis in August 2016.
My primary love is classical music, but I have studied country, pop, rock and fingerstyle guitar.
My approach to teaching is to get you excited about learning guitar! You will pick the style and the song you want to learn and you will be playing guitar within the first lesson! I like to spend time getting to know your musical taste and knowing what your goals are for taking lessons. No matter what your goals are, I want to work with you and first and foremost have fun while fostering a love for music!

I am fairly useless when it comes to music but Lauren was incredibly patient and understanding when I fumbled through her beginning lessons. We went at a pace that was not difficult to follow,and I can safely say I learned a great deal from her in just a few lessons, and when I am ready to get back on that horse I will make sure to have her as my instructor.

Lauren taught my son to play acoustic guitar several years ago. She did more than teach him the basics of playing. Lauren's enthusiasm in her love of music was contagious too. My son now plays in his own band, writes music, plays for worship at church and in his school. Lauren has always been an excellent music instructor, but now has expanded her abilities to teach several genres given her bachelor's degree completion. As a music educator, I highly recommend Lauren Jones to any prospective student!

She was my second guitar teacher and she was the best! I owe most of my guitar skills to her and I wouldn't have even been as interested as I am now if it weren't for her. She didn't just teach me, but she also made it a ton of fun. I'm now in a band (Fisherman's Fable) that's just starting out, and I know it wouldn't have happened if she didn't teach me strumming patterns, bar chords, finger picking, and singing while playing ten years ago, and she has only gotten better with her study at Liberty. I put down Acoustic Guitar, but she has also helped me some with classical as well. I'd say stop looking at all the other teachers you're considering, she's the one you want.
