Play your first solo on the acoustic guitar with the aid of an efficient tutor.
I have 15+ years experience playing, performing, and recording guitar, bass, and piano. I'm most comfortable with guitar since I’ve toured all over the country and have played for fun or professionally in several different settings. I’ve worked with all kinds of students and feel that I’m able to figure out efficient lesson plans for everyone. I like to find out what the student is interested in specifically, and create a lesson plan from that. With children, I usually start with simple sight reading, finger exercises, and chords, and make decisions based on the student's progress. After every lesson I prefer the student to walk away with something fun as well as something technical to work on until the next lesson. I love making lists with students and sending homework over email between every session. I believe that lessons should be fun and easy going. I'm very passionate about music theory but I don't like to push it on anyone unless it's something they're interested in. I'm also very excited when it comes to working with students on songwriting. That is my greatest passion and love helping those who want to write their own music but are having trouble getting started.
About Jack U.

I play guitar, upright & electric bass, ukelele and piano. I've played in multiple bands throughout my life. I moved to Seattle with my band from Ann Arbor in 2016. We played Indie Psych Rock and were influenced by bands like Talking Heads, The Strokes, and David Bowie. We had the privilege of recording a single with Steve Albini(Nirvana) and an EP with Gordon Raphael(The Strokes). We toured the east coast multiple times before deciding to make a change and move out to Seattle. My first Instrument was upright bass in middle school, then I started to explore electric bass, and took up guitar shortly after. Songwriting is the most important part of music to me, and would love to help people learn how to start writing their own songs in addition to playing guitar. Although I’ve played in mostly rock bands, I’ve explored learning guitar and writing songs in all different genres, and would feel comfortable helping you learn whatever genre/style that you’re passionate about. I graduated from film school in Michigan before moving to the west coast. I wrote and directed several short films and entered them into film festivals all over the country. My love of film and music influence each other constantly. I love telling stories through my songs. I'm excited to help people figure out how to play what it is they're passionate about. I've run into so many roadblocks throughout my time creating music, and I feel that I can relate and help with most of the problems you may be facing with guitar or songwriting.

My daughter has been with Jack for 6 lessons now and she is making fantastic progress. It is so exciting to see her really getting into playing the guitar. Jack is really clear in his instructions and patient with her which has really helped her flourish. He has a lot of good tips for improving her technique and wraps reading music into the lessons as well. The other amazing thing is that all of the lessons have been online. I was a bit concerned about virtual music classes but it has been a fantastic success.

Jack is a great instructor; very knowledgable and offers an easy approach to teaching/learning. Jack is also very intuned to my desired path of musical interests and caters the lesson appropriately. Bottom line - highly recommend!

My kids really enjoy learning from Jack. They appreciate that he sat down with them and talked about goals and teaches them using songs of their choice rather than follow a curriculum. One child has taken guitar lessons for years and and feels like they're learning much faster with Jack than the other teachers. And he has my new learner excited about guitar which I love to see. If looking for a guitar teacher, I highly recommend Jack.
