Ukulele lessons are all about having fun. We’ll dig into all of your favorite pop tunes. At the same time, I’ll give you a firm foundation for you to play whatever you want going forward. Or, give you the confidence to approach guitar? Maybe?
I took both bass guitar and guitar lessons from Jerry in high school, and I will always consider those lessons to be one of the most fun things that I did during my otherwise studious and extremely nerdy teenage years.
As his student, you will discover very quickly that Jerry is not only passionate about teaching guitar, but also about teaching music. This goes beyond just teaching music theory (which he doesn’t skimp on, by the way, thank you Jerry!). I always loved hearing him talk about the backstory of each song I learned to play; not just the what, but the how and the why – the lifeblood of music itself.
His teaching curriculum is very structured and intentional but never feels restrictive or impersonal, probably because Jerry as a person is very chill and relaxed, and you will immediately want to be friends with him. If you are looking for a guitar/bass teacher who is not only insanely talented but also has a true gift for teaching and makes lessons fun and exciting, look no further, because Jerry is your man!
I took guitar lessons from Jerry Baiden in the late 90s. I have since studied music at Princeton, Berklee College of Music, and MIT. In retrospect, I learned more about music from Jerry than I did from any of the university professors. This guy is one of the best guitarists I’ve ever met, and he’s also one of the most passionately musical people I’ve ever known. Since taking lessons from Jerry, I have performed across the country and I now develop guitar technology with companies like Gibson and Avid. Lessons from Jerry are worth their weight in gold!
Jerry was my guitar teacher all through high school and played an essential role in my musical development. Not just an amazing player, he is able to really connect with you and elaborate upon each person’s individual needs/interests as students and show them the best way to progress towards their musical goals. I would tell my friends, as well as fans, about Jerry. Many of these people proceeded to take lessons from him, and not a single one was left unsatisfied. I had several guitar instructors before Jerry, and he far surpassed all of them in both skill and teaching. If you are looking for a great guitar teacher, you can’t do better than Jerry Baiden.
