Five star rating for Jared as the best guitar teacher I have had!" - Scott S. (student)
“Jared's approach to teaching theory is very accessible and is easily the most practical thing I've ever learned as a guitar player. Jared taught me how to see and use chord inversions, which has greatly improved my familiarity with the fretboard, and allows me to now play in more interesting and creative ways.” - Evan W. (student)
“I’ve been studying with Jared for years and I always thought that he would make the perfect online teacher. He has a way of taking seemingly complex musical subjects and simplifying them into a few rules and principles that clarify a vast amount of information. - Linda C. (student)
“Through studying jazz guitar with Jared I have been able to achieve many long term goals including making my own music, improvising/playing with other musicians, and increasing my theoretical mastery of the guitar/music as a whole. As I continue to improve and reach more musical goals, I will be buying these instructional videos and am very excited to benefit from his teaching methods in a new format, one that is highly visual/interactive and can be reviewed at my leisure.” - Steve M.
