Guitar is one of the most popular instruments in the world for some very good reasons: It is the foundation for an incredible number of songs, both classic and current, across a huge number of musical styles. It’s a very versatile instrument as well as being portable and a lot of fun to play! Playing guitar is a rewarding experience that can open many doors. Imagine where it could take you…

Do you dream of strumming and singing around the campfire, leading worship at church or playing in a rock band? How about writing and recording your very own songs? Have you ever thought about becoming a Music Therapist? Maybe you simply want to play guitar for your own enjoyment. How will you get there? You need the proper, in-person, one-on-one instruction. That’s where I come in.

My name is Derek Jensen and I’m a guitarist, instructor and singer/songwriter.  I have over 30 years experience teaching guitar to people of all ages. I teach one-on-one lessons, group lessons and clinics. I have guided thousands of people in their quest to become guitar players and musicians. Many of my students are using their musical skills in a variety of ways… some are even enjoying successful musical careers!
