My name is Jeff Pietrzak and I’m the creator of this website and all its content. I have been playing and studying music for almost my entire life. Although I enjoy playing and performing, it brings me even more satisfaction to teach. I just really enjoy talking about and explaining music.
Learning how to make great sounding music does not need to be a mystery. This art form can be explained clearly and sequentially, and is within everyone's grasp. The instruction here is the real deal - you will learn all you need to know to meaningfully participate in the American music tradition.
For over 20 years I have taught music to students of all ages and foreign languages to high school students. I studied at the Berklee College of Music and graduated from the University of Scranton (PA) with a degree in Modern Languages. I live in Baltimore with my wife and two sons.
