Jason R.

Urbandale, IA

About Jason

Hi! I'm Jason. I've been playing guitar and bass for over 15 years and I would love to help you or your child on the journey!

I've been helping people learn guitar throughout my career but have sp
ent the last 3 years officially teaching students. I've loved helping my students relate their current musical knowledge to the guitar, help them learn their favorite songs, and push the boundaries of what they thought was possible!

My training comes from years of self-study, lessons, classes and most importantly, performance experience on the bandstand with other musicians.

I'm personable and laid back. I see my job as a coach and a source of encouragement. My teaching style is flexible, customized to the student, and goal-oriented.

After his first lesson, my son was very excited. He felt motivated and expressed that Jason would hold him accountable for his practice time. Jason was encouraging and has my son very eager for his next lesson.

Jason is a fabulous instructor, very easy going and willing to listen to his students and help them learn what they're interested in. He's been giving my daughter lessons for a year now and she looks forward to them every week.

Jason has been giving lessons to my 10 year old daughter for about 6 months. We've been really pleased with the progress she's making and she really enjoys her lessons. Jason does a great job working with her to make practice fun and keeping her engaged.
