Student Testimonials


What started as a few lessons thanks to a Christmas gift from my wife, turned out to be a 5 year guitar journey of lessons. Ron is great teacher who is extremely patient and will tailor his lessons to your needs with also providing you the necessary music theory and technical skills. You are getting a seasoned working musician who is also an educator. His lessons are also fun as well, which made me look forward to each session. I am now a proud “pro-amateur” as Ron would put it. I highly recommend him to anyone who is seeking instruction at any level or musical genre.

"Ron Jackson is by far one of the best, if not the best teacher I have ever had. He is an intelligent teacher full of knowledge and reasoning; with him I have excelled greatly in sight reading, improvising, rhythmic studies and ear training. Ron has been a great mentor to me and continues to do so without effort. He is a great guy and having him as your teacher will help you excel beyond your wildest dreams. He is by far, my favorite jazz teacher making it easy to learn complicated solos because he is able to breakdown anything. This skill is his greatest asset because Ron is able to make learning funning making even the hardest of music easy to breakdown and understand for any person of any level. Thank you Ron for everything; and please anyone who reads this should consider having him as a mentor."

"Ron Jackson is an amazing guitarist and teacher. Ron's thorough yet practical approach to teaching when I was in high school helped me develop the phrasing and vocabulary that I had always wanted as an aspiring jazz guitarist. Ultimately, I was able to get into the music school of my choice and now have a fulfilling career as a professional guitar player in NYC".

"The first time that I heard Ron Jackson play a Guitar Solo- it was beautiful- I knew at that moment that he had extraordinary improvisational skill. I highly suggest that if you feel that you are not playing at the level that you desire please give Ron Jackson a call; it may be the best thing that you could ever do for your career."
