Inspired by his favorite band at the time, Green Day, Jacob began rocking out on the electric guitar at just eight years old. He was accepted into Harmony Magnet Academy for Performing Arts where he advanced quickly and was appointed as lead instructor for the classical guitar program and music director of the HMA Band. As music director, he was responsible for teaching hand-picked music to fellow musicians and coordinating rallies, concerts, recitals etc. He is currently active with a local band and is the A/V director and Youth Worship Leader for his church. While serving his community, Jacob is also studying sound engineering at College of the Sequoias and will be transferring to Fresno State University in the Spring of 2018.
“I want music to be fun. That’s what it’s about.” Jacob’s main goal is to further his students’ love for music while imparting essential knowledge regarding music theory, scales, and components of the instrument. Whether working on individual technique or how to play with other musicians, Jacob encourages his students to enjoy every part of the learning-process and to dive into their own musical tastes and goals.
