Jared Borkowski sound guitar lessons about page photo

Hi there!

If you're looking for an online resource for advancing your guitar playing and musicianship skills then you've come to the right place!

My name is Jared Borkowski and I've been teaching since 2003. Throughout this time I've been refining an approach for learning the guitar that I've seen induce rapid progress for students of all ages leading to incredible results.

I've played and composed professionally in a wide variety of settings including with artists such as Stewart Copeland of The Police, Macklemore, and Ben Smith of Heart.

I spent years deeply studying classical guitar, jazz improvisation, and composition with amazing teachers to get a firm grasp on how music works on the guitar and I'm excited to share that knowledge with you! 

Sadly, I had to turn new private students away for many years because of my teaching schedule being completely full. It was disappointing not being able to help everyone who came to me looking for lessons so I decided to take my teaching online where I can share it with more people (like you!). 

Let me know how I can best help you to reach your goals and desired level of playing on the guitar. You can reach out on social media, leave a comment on my lesson blog, or email me anytime at [email protected]

If you want to learn even more about me and my background you can read a longer version of my bio on my other teaching site here

I publish a free video lesson every week and I do my very best to make each one as valuable as I can for my students. Sign up below and I’ll send you an email when they come out each Tuesday.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope your next practice session feels inspiring and fulfilling :)
