“I’m in my 50’s and just started playing a few years ago. Jake has been the perfect teacher, I feel like I’m learning guitar from an old friend. He’s extremely knowledgeable, encouraging and just a great overall teacher and coach. He’s helped me overcome hurdles I never thought I’d achieve and every week I come home fired up to learn a new skill. “Doug Y., cited from verified google reviews

“Jake has given me the confidence to pick up an instrument and feel like I have the ability to play, learn, and develop. I’m 45 and always assumed it was way too late for me to learn, but Jake, with his simple but super effective methodology, has taught me the basics and brought me up to fluid playing without me even realizing it. His unwavering positivity and encouragement have driven me to realize my dream. Several thumbs up, couldn’t recommend him enough. “Kester H., cited from verified google reviews
