First and formost I love creating music. Whether that is playing, writing, or teaching. Making music is basically all I have done for the past 20+yrs. I play and perform on multiple instruments so that gives me an insight into how different instruments interact with one another either in a band situation or songwriting/arranging. My main goal as a teacher is to get you playing and making music as soon as possible. I want you to enjoy learning music by playing your favorite songs and really be excited about the whole process. Through learning songs the lessons and supplemental materials can become very personalized to the students' interests.
I throughly love sharing my knowledge and experience with my students. Knowing the joy music brings to my life fills me with the passion to pass it along to my students. Every student gets their own Google Classroom where the lesson materials and communications can happen quickly and directly. I record each lesson and provide the replay of ...

Jamie is a great instructor. As a self taught adult player with some playing skills already, it is important to me that my instructor can tailor the lessons to my goals and current starting point. Jamie listens carefully to my goals and priorities, and develops custom lessons that help me the most. I highly recommend Jamie for any level of student.
Kandy
Jamie is a fabulous teacher. I was new to the guitar but by the end of the first lesson he had me playing a song. He is also so very knowledgeable about music and excited to share that knowledge. I highly recommend him.
Steve and Abby
Jamie Rocks! Jamie taught our daughter to play guitar, first at the Rock House in person and then remotely during quarantine. He is such an amazing musician and his talent and passion for playing shine through during his lessons. He makes the guitar approachable and fun, never a chore. Our son is a drummer and both kids have played in bands that Jamie helped coach, and even pinched in with lead vocals when the band was short a singer. Jamie is an absolute pleasure to work with and we would recommend him to anyone who aspires to learn the guitar.

To me, learning any instrument is about balancing the exercises with the fun material that makes you want to keep playing. I am a technique-focused teacher insofar as making sure any student of mine is avoiding bad and sometimes unhealthy habits in their playing. I do, however, try to find fun ways to work on technique, with the end goal being playing repertoire that is fun for the student. I believe technical exercises have their place in learning any instrument, but that it's important to spend the majority of your practice time on material which is ultimately enjoyable to play.

I do have certain sets of books I like to follow depending on the student's interests and age, but I am always happy to tweak the lesson plan to fit the student's needs. I also tend to supplement whichever books I'm using with material of my own, to make sure we're also covering important topics such as music theory and maybe a bit of relevant music history in the process.

Joshua has helped me become a better guitar player by showing me how I can work towards my goals, and giving me exercises, information and musical practice that makes my goals attainable. Joshua is a student-directed teacher, and he has worked with me to focus on my areas of interest (songwriting and fingerstyle/chord work). He is willing to answer questions, responsive to ideas, and able to explain difficult concepts. I've learned things that will help me improve my guitar playing for years. Thank you, Joshua.
Ashlyn
I was self taught when I started taking lessons, Josh helped me fix some bad habits that helped me push my playing to the next level!
Marco
I grew up on bossa, and wanted to learn how to play it. I had played guitar for years but mostly rock and folk. Josh was able to take what I knew and teach me how to play bossa music.

Miracle Lindskog L.
Mr. Jesse is a very effective teacher and my 16 year old daughter has progressed very quickly in playing classical guitar and violin in just under two years. The lessons are very productive while still being very enjoyable. I'd recommend him for both for students who are learning a new instrument or already have a musical background.

Hello! My name is Laura. I think you would love taking lessons with me- A little bit about my own background in music: my parents are musicians and music teachers as well ave been taking guitar lessons since the day I was born practically! In 2011 I started teaching private music lessons myself, teaching multiple after school music classes at local schools, and directing local band programs. After high school I attended Musician’s Institute for a degree in vocal performance and music theory. I have assisted and worked many musicians and producers. I myself have performed and played guitar in over 100 musical concerts and performances, as well as recorded and released my own music. In working with me at The Dave Curtis Music Academy, students also have access to many opportunities to play, write, and collaborate with other artists and students who also share a passion for music, as well as opportunities to participate in group/band practices and performances.

Picture this....you get home after a long day of work or school, you feel a little stressed out by the world, wishing you had more time to get the endless list of things done and more energy to do them.....

Instead of turning on Netflix and zoning out, you pick up your guitar and play your favorite song.

Feels pretty great right?!

Learning to play an instrument is one of life's most rewarding endeavors, that just keeps getting better the longer you pursue it.

With playing an instrument, you will have something you love to do and look forward to doing every single day, enriching your life and those around you.

If you'd like to chat or have any questions just shoot me a message and I'll get back asap :)

Thanks for checking out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.

"Infectious Enthusiasm

What makes Ryan a terrific instructor is more than just his extensive guitar knowledge. It's more than the personalized curriculum and patient approach he offers to each student. It's even more than his great sense of humor and the encouragement he brings to each lesson. What makes Ryan a truly great instructor becomes apparent within moments of meeting him: this dude LOVES the guitar. Simple as it sounds, the sheer enthusiasm he has for the instrument is infectious and carries over into his lessons in such a way that you can't help but take it home with you. Learning a new instrument can be a daunting and difficult journey, but you will not find an instructor more willing to guide you through it than Ryan."
