What people are saying about Jared:

Jared was one of the most diligent and teachable students I have ever met. His private piano instructor told me that he would make detailed notes of everything she said in the lesson and sought to implement each comment. The instructor, a Russian-born concert pianist, told me on several occasions she never had a student like Jared.

Jared constantly strives to improve himself as a teacher, and as a result, he made incredible improvements in his teaching during his three years as a teacher at Maranatha Music Prep School. He is a very conscientious teacher who carefully and thoroughly prepares his lessons to give his students a top-quality learning experience.

Jared is an excellent and enthusiastic teacher.  His love for music shows in the careful way he teaches practicing strategies, technique, and musicality.  My son loved taking piano lessons from him!

Jared’s musical abilities are above and beyond. He plays with great accuracy and emotion, and takes notice of any cues from the director for which he is playing. His knowledge of his subject area is immense.
