A Message From Jakob…

“I have a great wealth of knowledge about music that I am excited to share with you. No matter what your goals, I will develop a personal curriculum to help you reach them. For example: If you are interested in playing your favorite songs, we will work on learning the required chords, proper rhythms and singing techniques to get you sounding like your favorite artist. If you are interested in playing face melting solos, we will work on scales, proper technique, and riffs to have you sounding like Hendrix in no time. I have over a decade of experience as a professional touring musician to share with you.”
