My first lesson was heavy on intro and establishing a practice routine consisting mainly of exercises. This traditional method is what I grew up with and I'm looking forward to learning with Jon.

Whether you're a beginner, an intermediate or advanced, my blues guitar lessons cater to all!

All ages are welcome! We will definitely learn songs, but in order to truly become an amazing musician you must also focus on building strong technique. Taking lessons with me will ensure that you’ll be able to learn songs and parts by ear. No more tabs! Here’s what we’ll focus on:
- building technique
- transcribing songs and solos
- learning theory
- ear training
- learning to read

Feel free to message me at any time if you have any questions!

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.

"I was very impressed, satisfied and happy about my guitar lessons with Greg.
I'm German and booked just 5 lessons due to travel reasons. There was very vage input from me to Greg when we started (I always play the same; want to get new ideas; ...). Greg did not just provide a regular standard lesson. He focused and addressed 100%+ my desires and needs. Greg provided me very conrete and great input in several aspects to what I can do to improve my guitar playing. This was very useful to me and enabled me to move my guitar play forward. I highly recommend Greg to anybody."

"I found Andrea to be an attentive, caring teacher with a positive attitude and a fun sense of humour. He is also highly qualified (check out his profile). I had not played guitar since high school, and was unsure that I would be able to pick it up again because it's been so long, but Andrea helped me get my confidence back. Would recommend to anyone seeking to improve their guitar skills or just learn the basics."

Pat kept notes on what we were talking about and followed up each week. There’s no one else I’d recommend if you’re trying to learn slide or blues guitar."

"Andrea has been the best teacher I’ve ever had, hands down! I have been playing guitar for a few years now and had learned some licks on my own, but Andrea really helped me understand how to incorporate these licks and make my own using different chord progressions. He also taught me that it’s not always about how many notes you play, but the feel and meaning behind every note that matters."

"I had been trying to learn the guitar for a while and met several teachers along the way. However it was with Ahmad that I developed the interest and excitement you experience when you play a guitar. Ahmad is the best guitar teacher hands down. In a very short time I have been able to understand not just how to play the guitar but also music in general. Ahmad is a very enthusiastic teacher who keeps the momentum going throughout the session. If you are in the area and want to learn the guitar you should definitely pay Ahmad a visit."

"Leaving a second review for William to tell players out there how awesome he is. Having worked with William for over a year, I can tell you his teaching style and ability to communicate are superior to that of other teachers. Moreover, William helped me develop a strong technical foundation for playing—and after 16 years of guitar playing with other teachers, I was surprised how far those little changes can go (i.e., how you hold the pick, where to put your thumb on the neck, the sequential order to playing notes on a chord, etc.) While that may sound basic, believe me, it's not. I almost had to relearn how to play. Overall, I highly recommend William if you're looking to crush your guitar playing goals."

5 Blues Guitar Secrets That Will Make You a Better Player

Learning how to play blues guitar? Pay extra attention to these five things from guitar teacher Mike B.... 1. In Tune Bends The blues guitar style is full of bending strings. Bends, as well as hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides, give guitarists the ability to imitate the way singers use various inflections while singing melodies. However, unlike hammers-ons and slides, bends are not guaranteed to be in tune. Since there is nothing worse than an out-of-tune bend in the climax of a great solo …
