Anybody can learn to play music regardless of age or natural ability level.

The only requirements are belief that music can be learned and a willingness to commit time and effort. My teaching style utilizes structured methods focusing on the essential skills of each instrument along with small-group collaborative learning. These fundamentals build a foundation upon which a student can learn to understand music on an intuitive level and perform effortlessly.


Banjo, Mandolin, Guitar and Ukulele

Jay teaches on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays



Jay began performing music in church at the age of 14 as a guitar player and singer. After learning banjo while attending college in Atlanta, he joined a local folk-punk band and performed regularly until moving to Brunswick in 2011 to pursue a career in engineering. Soon after he joined City Hotel, a Savannah-based bluegrass band. In 2014, he moved to Savannah and has been teaching and performing music full-time ever since.
