- Levels Taught:
- Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
My curriculum is an in-depth study of music theory, improvisation and modern technique.
I do not focus on brutal sight-reading or memorization, but I teach through technical exercises that equip students with the faculty needed to analyze, read and write music.
It's great for students who are into jazz or pop and want to pursue Berklee instead of a classical conservatory.
The knowledge will allow you to join any band, regardless of genre, while building your songwriting and improvisational chops.

I love teaching music! Through attentive 1on1 instruction I develop a program to suit the player's goals. I emphasize technique with drills designed to raise my students' skills evenly across a wide range of categories, like picking, fretting, scale patterns, chord shapes, chord progressions, rhythm training, and ear training. I can guide a complete beginner toward being able to play songs and have fun. For the more serious student I have a plan that will make you a better player and musician guaranteed.

Wake has been an amazing teacher! I had little to no experience walking into the first lesson, so his passion for music theory and guitar have help me learn the fundamentals and more. Wake's creativity and patients have made each lesson work so well for me. Despite all the questions I ask and difficulties I feel I have with the music and learning the whole new language of music, he is always encouraging and points out my progress - which I feel make his a great teacher. I would recommend Wake for both beginners and advanced guitarists.+ Read More
We have been working with Wake for a month and he is awesome!! He is very smart, creative and makes learning fun. His knowledge about music is impressive and he is able to adjust to our child's desire to advance in guitar as well as with overall music theory. He is able to change his teaching strategy based on her level of understanding. When met with a challenge of a broken arm he quickly rose to the occasion and adapted to help our daughter continue her learning! Impressive response time, adaptation and eager to help a serious student.+ Read More
