Music Education

Private Lessons & General Music Tutoring

for all ages


Musicians who are actually good teachers are hard to find. But Jake possesses both qualities of being a good musician and a teacher. It became clear to me very quickly from the first class that he was an experienced instructor for all levels. Just how he communicated the material to an absolute novice was impressive; he knew how to deconstruct the subject that was easily understandable. I started looking for a music teacher when my daughter received a used guitar as a birthday gift, and was introduced to Jake through my neighbor. I am very pleased that my daughter is being exposed to music from such a young age and through an excellent teacher. We hope to continue learning from Jake as long as possible.

I have known Jacob Staron professionally and personally for the past three years.  He was my son’s music teacher and instructed him from the very beginning of his taking up the String Bass.  During the several years he taught my son he helped him to acquire the dexterity needed to play the instrument with both bowing and pizzicato, and to become familiar with music notation.  Later on my son also learned how to play the electric bass, and Jacob helped him with sight-reading and basic music theory.  He was an excellent teacher, and a fine mentor for my son.   He also helped us with a repair.  During the time Jacob taught my son he was an excellent and professional instructor, and a positive influence.  It has been my pleasure knowing him!

Jake is an amazing music teacher and an amazing human being in general. He is super committed to helping you improve and getting you where you want to go. He’s kind, patient, supportive and uber talented in anything music related from learning to play instruments to composing, theory, and live performance. He really tries to cater to exactly what YOU want in music. Love my time with Jake! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND him for anyone wanting to up their game, nothing but great vibes.
