I offer a unique, highly customizable, and individualized program designed to help intermediate and advanced guitar students:
- Improve their improvisation
- Understand the fretboard well enough to have easy access to their creative ideas
- Develop a deep, usable understanding of chords, scales, and harmony
- Learn and understand material from their favorite guitarists and musicians
- Learn, utilize, and manipulate chord voicings to suit their musical needs (jazz improvisation, songwriting, etc)
- Develop advanced rhythmic concepts
- Improve ear training and sight reading
This is a program for individuals who want to advance their musical skills and be held accountable to make significant, tangible progress - not just learn tips, tricks, and licks! Unlike online lessons that simply provide pdfs and videos, in this program I stay in personal contact with students to give individualized instruction, create personalized practice programs, give feedback on their playing, coach on motivation and organization, and make sure they are moving forward towards their goals.
Even if you are not sure yet if this program would be right for you, I would love to hear from you and learn about your goals with the guitar, and where you may feel stuck or frustrated. If you're interested in improving your abilities on the guitar, please click here to contact me, and we can set up a time for a free phone consultation to exchange more information. It's very likely that even if I feel we would not be a good fit to work together, I can make a recommendation for resources for you to check out to achieve the goals you have with guitar.

"Jake is a wonderful guitar teacher! He is kind and methodical, and has helped to reinvigorate my love for the guitar. If you’re ever feeling stuck or wondering what is next, I highly recommend studying with Jake!"

"I was strumming through the changes to "Misty" for the first time in a couple months before bed and I noticed a big difference in my comfort with basic drop 2 voicings and with "playing through a tune". The material and assignments you've been providing have super helpful for me in a short period of time! I'm getting much better at a lot of these basic concepts, so I'm excited to see where it goes."
- Adam Janka
"I went to that Acoustic Jam Weekend I was tell you about this past weekend. I had an amazing time, attended a lot of workshops and was up until 2:00am jamming. We had a concert on Saturday night and I was in one of the groups that performed. I did a guitar solo in front of 125 people! That was the first time ever playing lead in front of a group! Thanks to you!"
