"Two years ago I started taking lessons with Jason as a complete beginner to the acoustic guitar. As an adult novice student, I tried other teachers but had a hard time finding someone who could instruct me in a very logical, organized fashion that made sense to me. I knew I had found the right teacher for my learning style after taking just a few lessons with Jason. He was able to get me learning chords in a way that each skill built up to the next, while mixing in necessary technique and musicality. As time has passed, he has arranged music for me to play at my level and composed classical guitar drills. He helps me strengthen all my weaknesses (hello, barre chords!) with patience and a flexible approach. Although Jason plays guitar intimidatingly well, he is incredibly down to earth, non-judgmental, and encouraging. Currently, he is teaching me very cool finger style pieces from James Taylor and John Mayer as well as music theory.
But to appreciate Jason as an artist, musician, and teacher, you have to know that he is someone everyone can get along with-easy to talk to, wickedly funny at times, but always staying true to his craft. I feel very lucky to be his student.
If you are on the fence, I encourage you to try Jason out and see for yourself. You will be glad you did."
