A Summa Cum Laude graduate of Boston’s Berklee College of Music, Jake specializes in teaching guitar, electric bass, mandolin, ukulele, and piano. Jake works closely with his students to help them reach their personal goals. Every musician uses a similar set of essential skills in their music, whether they play classical piano or rock guitar. Through the use of modern and classic music that the students are drawn to, Jake places emphasis on these traditional musical skills that have stood the test of time.
Jake maintains an active performance schedule as well. He was performed multiple times for Former President George H.W. Bush. He serves as the lead guitarist for 60’s Invasion, a Southern New Hampshire area show band. He also performs with The Deep Blue “C” Studio Orchestra, The Rhythm Exchange Jazz Quartet, and Megan Harney. Jake has studied privately with Jon Finn (The Boston Pops Orchestra, The Jon Finn Group), Bruce Bartlett, Jon Wheatley, Ed Saindon, and Clay Steininger.
