My name is Jake Diamond and I've been playing guitar for 12 years (and bass for 6). I have been actively gigging for 10 of those years.
I am proficient in many styles including (but not limited to!): Blues, Country, Rock, Jazz, Classical, Fingerstyle, Reggae, Afro-beat, Zydeco, and Latin.
I can also help you with the following elements of music/guitar: Rhythm, Harmony, Melody, Theory, Ear Training, Transcription, Guitar Repair and Maintenance, Picking and Fretting Technique, Strum Patterns, etc.
My teaching style is a "Forest, not the trees" approach, where I try to connect big picture ideas for the student without muddying their understanding. However, I am more than willing to spend time on any details the student may be interested in.
My rate is $20/hr, or $15/half-hr. I teach out of my home, but am equally willing to travel if it is more convenient for you. I will add a $5 cost to the lesson if I come to you.
I love teaching music, and it is my honor to put my skills to work for any student interested to learn.
