About Jeff B.

People study subjects for a great number of reasons, consequently I customize my lessons to each individual student's needs and wants. We learn different ways. Some of us are more visual, some more tactile, some more intuitive, some more cerebral, etc. Understanding this allows me to adapt to each person's most natural mode of learning so that the material is grasped more easily (therefore more quickly), and so that it is retained longer. I would be honored to share my experience and knowledge with you.

I've played guitar off and on since my teens, but was self-taught. I had the basic skills to play along with most songs, but no understanding of how to build a song or a melody. In the year I've spent with Jeff, he opened my eyes to music theory in a way that is instantly applicable. I am much more comfortable improvising around a chord progression. I can see the patterns in songs and how and when to utilize different scales and modes. Jeff's book with Schell Barkley, Fingering Mastery - scales and modes for the guitar fretboard, demystifies these topics with images and patterns that are different from any other theory book I've seen. His backing tracks provide the foundation to apply these patterns, and his demonstrations during lessons bring them together using examples from standards and popular songs. Last thing - Jeff has an incredibly strong understanding of world music and music history, much of which is earned through decades of playing live music around the world. I find this adds a lot to the experience of a lesson with him. I recommend Jeff without reservation.

The music theory that he taught me makes it easy to play along with any song!
