"Jamie is an amazing instructor! She has a way of teaching where her students not only learn how to play the instrument, but also how to perform and write music. My son was new to guitar, and needed a positive, encouraging teacher. Jamie was a perfect fit!" -- Wendi Austin

"Thanks for giving L such a great entrance to music!" - M. Wieleba



Looking for guitar lessons in the Ottawa area or online via Skype?

I've been playing guitar for 40 years, and have been teaching for 15 years. I'm happy to teach any skill level, from beginners to more advanced players, and kids and adults. I'm able to teach many different styles, blues, bluegrass, country, folk, pop, rock, and more. The parking here is free, and easily accessible by bus in the Beechwood / Vanier Parkway area. Acoustic or electric guitar players welcome.

Learn blues licks, power chords, bar chords, how to solo, scales, new songs, fingerpicking, strums, how to sing and play, tips for enhancing your original songs, help for learning by ear, rhythm – whatever you want. It's your lesson!

Please email me if you're interested in guitar lessons!
