Jake marches to the beat of his own drums, and it showed even at age two, when he came across a set of bongos outside a market & instinctively played as if he'd had lessons. He realized he wanted to become a professional musician after watching his former piano teacher play guitar & vocals at a rock concert, and hasn't stopped since. Jake's played in three bands over the last seven years, including his group Aurora, which won Best Youth Artist for the 2011 OC Music Awards. He now attends Irvine Valley College and is working towards his BA in music.
Jake takes a personal approach to lessons, getting to know his students musical style and prior experience, while sharing his own. He likes to find the simplest way for them to learn and perform their favorite songs.
