As a singer-songwriter with well over 300 live shows across the country - I know performance. I've played in all kinds of venues from coffee shops, colleges, house shows, rock clubs and historic theaters.

Up-level your craft by getting a lesson with me on what to expect when you're about to play a show. What to do and what NOT to do. The right frame of mind, etc! I've learned through so much experience, trial and error. Every show (and every practice, really) is an experience to learn from.

I can help take your songs from the bedroom to the next-level with some live performance guidance and strategy from my decades of experience.

Songwriting is an art as well as a craft. In my lessons, I cover basic song structures in a variety of styles including blues, pop, rock, country, and jazz, lyrical content, melodic phrasing, and telling a story. Guitar is my preferred instrument for these lessons, so a background in basic guitar fundamentals is recommended, although some introductory guitar can be included with these lessons.

About Jordan

I received my education at the University of Wisconsin, majoring in Jazz Guitar. I've studied with some of the best guitarists in the Midwest, and have performed live and in recording studios all across the country in a variety of styles (Rock, Metal, Bluegrass, Jazz, Classical, Country). I've perf

Jordan was very helpful right from the start. He listened to me on where I am at and where I want to be. He showed me a few things that we will work towards and then helped me understand my instrument much better. Gave me some fun new things to practice before the next lesson. If you're looking for a lesson that is interactive and fun I recommend Jordan and the online thing is supper easy and handy. I don't think it could have gone any better. The lesson was 45 minutes and it felt like 10.
Dave
Jordan is excellent & very patient.
Max
Jordan is a fantastic teacher! He expertly and patiently guided my young son from essentially 0 to reading notes and playing them on the guitar in about half an hour. He is clearly an experienced musician who loves to teach. We are looking forward to the next lesson.

Mr. Jerry is the best piano teacher I have ever had. I would highly recommend him to anyone. He is well versed in music and has wealth of knowledge relating to the piano. I have been one of his students for 3+ years. He is wonderful and has a great sense of humor. Thank you Mr. Jerry for your dedication. If you are considering piano, then check out Mr. Jerry.
Michelle B.
My daughter has been taking lessons with Jerry for over 5 years now and my son has been taking lessons for over 3 years. Every year around Christmas time we host a piano recital at our home where all the students get together and play for family and friends. Every student gets to shine and it is such a great time! If you are looking for more than just a piano teacher then you have just found the perfect guy :)
I think he has students that range from age 7 to 70!
We love Jerry, he is part of our family and my kids absolutely love having him as a teacher!
Kristin B.
1000% Satisfied! Highly Recommend To Anyone!
Jerry is a very skilled pianist and phenomenal piano instructor! Don't let his reasonable rates fool you into thinking that the quality of his teaching is anything less than spectacular. He thoroughly enjoys teaching piano lessons and music theory in many genres to people of all ages, paces himself to assist in your level of understanding, and makes learning to play the piano fun.
My eight year old daughter got a keyboard for Christmas so I decided to get her piano lessons to accompany her new instrument. I began searching for a local piano teacher who was reasonably priced, yet, also experienced with teaching children, and I couldn't have found a better person to do so than Jerry S!
My child had been previously diagnosed with ADHD and ODD so she tends to be very distracted, rambunctious, inquisitive, and defiant at times, however, it's never seemed to phase Jerry at all. He was open minded and seemingly very understanding of her condition. He is very friendly, easy going individual who has always been extremely patient with my child, despite her occasional outbursts.
In conclusion, I honestly feel that we are truly fortunate (and blessed) to have found such an amazing piano instructor, for an affordable rate, who's patient and keeps the student engaged, while also making it a fun filled learning experience to play the piano!

I have over 20 years experience teaching flute players ranging from beginners through advanced. We work hard and have a lot of fun!

Many of my students have had successful auditions for honor/state groups and youth orchestras, and have won scholarships for college. My local students perform several times throughout the year in studio recitals, local flute events and giving back to the community. I work with my online students to find ways for them to perform as well.

I love teaching and watching my student achieve new goals and play things they thought were impossible. Everything takes work, but with repetition, encouragement, and fun, it is all possible!

About Kerri

I believe that each student will be successful when they enjoy learning and experience success. It is my privilege to work with students to achieve their goals in an encouraging, fun, hard-working environment. I have worked for over 20 years with many different kinds of students. Some enjoy play

I do not have enough positive words to say about Kerri. She is AMAZING and WONDERFUL. I was very skeptical of taking lessons from someone I found randomly on the internet but turned out she has been an incredible teacher and awesome mentor. She has taught me to play high notes in just two lessons. I am a beginner student and she has been so patient and given me great tactics to get my embouchure and aperture correct. I look forward to every lesson with her and am excited to practice! She is the most incredible teacher EVER! If you need or want to learn flute then shop no further as she knows so much about flutes, music, and just generally a very warm and incredible teacher.

"Great teacher. I'm a total beginner on piano and Leanna has consistently been patient and brought me along at what feels like a very reasonable pace through the fundamentals and basic pieces. She consistently has good tips and helps me work through issues with what feel like very intuitive solutions. Would definitely recommend her to anyone else looking to pick up piano, and would have to imagine she'd be similarly excellent to students who are further along than I am."

He is very friendly and easy going and I have no reason to doubt that my lessons will be laid back yet also very educational. I felt at ease with my questions and he is good at teaching what he wants to convey. I have every reason to think he's a great teacher and I'm looking forward to my next lesson next week."

"Jason is a remarkably excellent teacher

I'm a moderately capable, mostly self-taught guitar player. I hadn't had a lesson in 40 years when someone recommended Jason to me. I have been impressed since my first lesson with Jason's engaging manner, his love of teaching, and most of all, his ability to teach any style or subject matter that I'm interested in. He has provided me a foundation in music theory and helped me expand my abilities to play in several styles. He makes learning a very enjoyable experience. He's a wonderful guitarist, and obviously loves and is dedicated to his profession. I strongly recommend him to students of any age and skill level. He's great!"
