"I have a 6 year old and an 8 year old who have attended guitar lessons with Jake over the past year. Managing the attention span of two very active boys is no walk-in-the-park, even when trying to learn the chorus notes to a Guns n' Roses song. To his credit Jake seems to handle the pressure. At each lesson Jake sets out the objectives and then he provides constructive hands-on feedback encouraging the kids to complete the chords correctly and strum out the tune. Jake is a good communicator and brings a friendly disposition to his lessons. No doubt he is somebody that I can recommend."
