Music Lessons Designed Just For You.

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 and portable instrument that is a lot of fun! 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 a 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 one-on-one instruction. That’s where I come in.

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

You can learn to play, improvise, write and even record your own songs! Have fun while getting a high quality music education! Whether you are a total beginner or an experienced player looking to expand your skills and knowledge, I can help you.

I personalize your lessons to help you achieve your musical goals while gaining the knowledge and skill base you need to continue improving and learning even after you have completed your studies. The instruction I give you now can provide you with a lifetime of enjoyment!

You provide the dreams… I’ll help you gain the knowledge and skills you need to chase them!
