Reviews and Testimonials
Rated Excellent (5 of 5) from 5 reviews
  Testimonial by John Kevin Allensworth
Highly skilled musician who loves music of many genres. Jeff loves sharing his musical skills with every student! Want to learn a blues song, Jeff will give you patient and fun instruction. Same goes if you want to learn a classical piece by Fernando Sor! Or a jazz classic from the many great songs of the last 100 years. He can also rock out! But if just want to write your own compositions, Jeff will show you step by step how to create written music... and engineer and record your creations! A great guy and fabulous musician and teacher!
  Testimonial by Paul Clark
Jeff taught me good technique with a kind sense of humor - thirty years later I still use the exercises he taught me as warm-ups, and the good form I learned from him has been the basis for everything I've done since as a jazz guitarist. He has equally big ears, brain and heart, and his playing is an inspiration for all who play, from beginner to veteran musician.
  Testimonial by Neal Martin
Jeff played and sang two songs for our 40th wedding anniversary party. He had never previously performed the two songs that I chose. But, with less than a week to prepare, he did a stellar performance that had most everyone teary-eyed with happiness. My wife said Jeff's music was the best part of our celebration! Thanks to Jeff for making our evening so special.
  Testimonial by Sarah Rauch
Jeff was awesome with the wedding ceremony! He drove over 200 miles just to be at the rehearsal! The music sounded amazing and he was a pleasure to do business with! I would definitely recommend him for any service you may need!
