Guitar lessons with one of Toronto's best guitar teachers in all styles

Methodology

My lessons are based around two important things: what the student wants to learn and techniques and skills that I as the teacher feel they will need. This is dependant on where the student is in their development. Teaching you what you want to know gets you interested and having fun and teaching you skills and techniques will help you develop faster.

Background

Hi, I'm Jay! I have been a professional musician and teacher in Toronto for over twenty years with an extensive performance background, including playing with many legends in several genres of music. I have my B.A. in composition and love sharing my passion for music with all my students!
