“Jason is probably the best teacher/coach I've ever had in any field. He does an amazing job of balancing the fine line between being fun and keeping his students on point. Seeing as how he saves me time and money by coming to my house, he should probably be charging much more.
An extremely talented musician, a gifted instructor, and a overall awesome guy. I can't recommend him enough!”
“Jason is an awesome guitar teacher and is worth ever penny. I've learned more from him in the last year than I've learned from anyone else. He doesn't just teach how to play the songs he actually teaches you the notes and the music theory behind the song. If you looking for a great guitar teacher look no further than Jason. :)”
“I think the best advice for learning anything is to find a teacher who is passionate and patient. Those are two qualities Jason has in abundance. I started taking lessons from him about 16 months ago and he inspires me to keep trying -- even though that pinky finger won't stretch where I want it to sometimes. I asked him once how someone as talented as him can seem so happy to listen to me stumbling along and he said he can remember where he was when he started learning. Thanks to him, I'm stumbling less.”
“I've always wanted to learn how to play the guitar, I even had a beautiful Seagull acoustic. I tried in brief intervals to learn on my own but did not achieve my objectives and did not have fun at all.
Finally when I decided that maybe I need lessons with a real guitar player, I started with Jason. Not only is Jason an excellent guitar player but his teaching is styled to meet me where I'm at. He meets me at my skill level and encourages me to press on. He makes it fun and is honest about his assessments. Jason is a pro and would not hesitate in recommending him as a master teacher.”
“I have always wanted to learn how to play the guitar, and now, finally I am on my way to achieving that goal. Hiring a private tutor is the best way for me to learn how to play, and Jason is a good teacher. He is patient, encouraging, honest, professional and keen of building up my confidence and skills. I look forward to my lesson every other week because I see the progress I'm making and I'm eager to learn more! There would be no hesitation for me to recommend Jason to anyone wanting to learn how to play guitar well!”
“Jason is an awesome guitar teacher, he is patient and really cares about the music hes teachingme. It has been 8 months and there is no way id be where I am by just going to lessons. Also he’s funny!”
“I started taking lessons with Jason a little less than a year ago and I am really happy with the progress I've made to this point. Jason has been a really good guitar teacher for me personally because of his consistently up beat and easy going attitude which has provided me with a good atmosphere that I feel I can thrive in. Though I've only been playing for a short time, I feel I have progressed exponentially in that time period because of Jason's guitar lessons.”

I had the luxury of working with Jason for two years before I went off to college this past month, and I must say the experience has been phenomenal. Jason's teaching method is both incredibly patient and helpful, and it's clear that this is something he is incredibly passionate about. He always kept me motivated and excited for each week's lesson, and allowed me to foster a love for guitar I know I'll have for years to come. And did I mention this guy is extremely talented?! He's great with all types of music, and I promise whatever you want to learn, he can teach you! No matter how experienced you are, I assure you there is something you can learn from him. 5 stars for this guy, he's surely the best around.
I began taking guitar lessons one month ago with Jason. I am an adult over 50 and always wanted to learn electric rock guitar.
My goal is to play lead guitar like a rock star. I find Jason to be skillful at a VERY high level as it pertains to his own playing ability as well as, his teaching ability, understanding for music, patience level and the way he can tune in on ones individual abilities. In one short month I am playing Enter Sandman by Metallica, Hells Bells by ACDC, power chords and rhythmic exercises. Jason is making the electric guitar even more fun than I ever imagined. Because of Jason's teaching ability and his method of making learning and playing music fun, I find myself playing guitar 2.5 hours each day.
I also enjoy that Jason teaches his students about the sound that the guitar has to offer along with all of the special effects available. I would strongly recommend Jason regardless of what playing level you are at.
I've been taking lessons with Jason for almost a year now and on day one I had learned something. Every lesson I learn something new and it improves my guitar skills greatly. I've had other people try and teach me songs, chords, scales, etc.etc. but I could never get it down! With Jason he makes it all seem so simple (Even though sometimes it's not! Haha.) But he can break it down therefore any player on any level can understand and accomplish it in a short amount of time. If you love and appreciate music a great deal now, after a guitar lesson or two with Jason, you will have a whole new perspective. Once you begin learning, it'll be difficult to put down your guitar! Jason is on time, talented, respectful, funny, and easy to talk to. He may be a teacher, but I also consider him a good friend. He's supportive and will always push you to do your best. Before learning with Jason, I didn't believe I could actually achieve anything on the acoustic and I was about to give up on guitar completely. But after his teachings, I have surprised myself with my progress. So, thank you Jason!
