I graduated with a Bachelor of Music degree in 2014 and have been teaching guitar for over ten years. I teach all levels and styles. In addition to playing, my students learn music reading, theory, ear training, and more! I have also been trained to teach the Suzuki method and the Orff-Schulwerk approach to music learning.
I have been teaching privately and in the classroom for over 10 years. Many of my students have completed the Suzuki level books and have gone on to pursue music in school, while others simply enjoy being able to play for friends and family. Most importantly, all of them have fun and love their instrument!

Jackie is great! I never picked up a guitar before, and thought I was too old to learn. Not the case! Jackie is a fantastic teacher and is so patient and encouraging. I've improved so much thanks to her. She's also really funny! I'd recommend her to anyone of any skill level or age :)
