Professional Acoustic Guitar Instructor - Over 7 years of Experience!
I tailor my guitar lessons to each of my students so that they can improve their skills in areas that interest them the most whether that be acoustic, electric, blues, classical, jazz, or country. This teaching approach, combined with my extensive and diverse guitar style background fosters the most efficient path of growth for my students. Furthermore, I can offer to teach students how to both sing and play guitar as I studied both guitar and voice for over 7 years. My qualifications: I've studied the guitar for seven years focusing on sight reading, playing by ear, understanding chord structures, and music theory. I've played in a rock band in college, I played guitar in Kenyon's Jazz Strings ensemble, I've also performed in bars in Paris. Additionally, I'm always ready to learn new styles or help my students learn songs that they're interested to play.

Jean-Louis has been working with my son for a few sessions. He has done a great job working with the type of music my son wants to work on as well as providing him useful feedback on improving his singing. He also helped him to work on a chord to play alongside his song. Highly recommend!

Great teacher. Listens to the student and works directly with them/ on their issues so no time is wasted. JL is very attentive and knowledgable in singing and voice. Highly recommend him!

Jean-Louis immediately impressed me. He put my daughter at ease, but also pushed her to explore her range and technical skill on the very first lesson!
