About Chris

I have studied music for 26 years. Piano was my first instrument and I have taken classical lessons from an early age and studied jazz piano for 14 years. I play guitar at the same level as piano. I play jazz, classical, flamenco and rock guitar; acoustic, electric and 9-string electric. I have studied at University of North Texas, Musicians institute and have a bachelor's of music from UNM. I have a certification in early childhood education and love to teach children, as well as adults of all ages.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am very patient and flexible. I work with the student to desi
gn curriculum that is exciting and engaging for their individual level. Students enjoy studying with me because they can progress quickly if they practice and because I am easy to talk to and work with.

*** Studio Equipment ***
The In-Studio lessons are taught in the music room in the home which includes an 88 key weighted keyboard, 5 guitars, 3 amps, and seating is available. Home includes 3 cats which can be kept separate if needed.

*** Travel Equipment ***
If I go to their house, I expect them to have their own instruments that they practice on during the week, a metronome, a tuner and the music books they are working on.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in jazz, rock and classical music. I usually allow the students or their parents to choose their method books based on their interests and goals.

Great teacher. Gears lessons towards individual desires of students, while still adding some of his own suggested material. Encouraging, easy to learn from, spends extra time with student when needed and time allows.

Guitar
Dynamic, and immersive lessons

When working with Jake all the lessons are tailored exactly towards your skill level and wants/needs as a musician. His knowledge extends beyond simple guitar playing and into performance, technology, and music theory. Meaning if you want to one day perform live he has all the tools and expertise at hand. Or if you simply want to strum out some pop songs that's fine too.
I had a blast taking guitar lessons from Jake, and feel that I not only advanced farther along in skill as a guitar player, but also gained a deeper appreciation for music and performance.
Also, he's a nice guy and a cool dude. So that's a plus.

Awesome Instructor

Our son has been interested in playing the guitar for awhile now and got a guitar this past Christmas. After lots of searching we finally found an instructor that is a great fit for our son. As soon as we saw Jacob's online profile and his taste in music we were hopeful he would be the instructor for Aid. Jacob is an enthusiastic teacher who is great with kids and has patience with young musicians. Our son is excited to attend his guitar lessons and the homework Jacob sends him home with gives Aid plenty to work towards until his next lesson. Aid wants to practice everyday and can't wait until his next lesson. We are very impressed with how quickly our son is picking up guitar and how much he enjoys his lessons. Thanks Jacob for helping our son truly develop a love for music. We appreciate you!

Clarinet · In studio

No other clarinet teacher has taught me the basics of the clarinet in this fundamental way so quickly. That is , to develop a strategy for proper breathing, finger centering , and air consistency on the instrument. He gets an A+ from me on the first lesson. He's just what I need to accomplish my goal at UNM music department. I certainly want to continue taking more lessons from his excellent teaching method.

3 Reasons Why Piano Players Should Also Learn the Organ
There are many reasons why a music student may find themselves learning to play piano on a keyboard rather than on a baby grand: cost, space, or simply lack of access, for example. Versatility on a range of keyboard instruments is also an extremely useful string for any pianist to have to their bow, and can lead to greater practice and public performance opportunities, and even excellent opportunities to earn a little money on the side.
