I love that we are able to learn a new piece every week. Jason is a wonderful musician, guitarist, and is super professional. He divides class time very well and gives individual attention while keeping the class challenging and at just the right level for everyone. That takes skill!


Can’t wait for live lessons

Jason's enthusiasm and focus on structured learning was a real highlight for me. His ability to provide individualized attention in a class of three students allowed me to progress very quickly. I was very impressed at how he could identify details of my fingering & strumming technique on video. I'm thrilled that after only four classes there are five songs in my repertoire! I appreciate how each song was designed to teach specific skills that will build on each other as we progress.

The instruction and the positive feedback.


This is not an improvement, but more of a suggestion. Perhaps provide a goal at the beginning of a semester of a song that the students will be working towards would be nice.

I loved learning new styles of playing and the piece selections. I feel I have really been improving as a guitarist.


Not too big a fan of Skype.
