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 and explain music to a student who really wants to understand this fascinating art form.
I have found that a good explanation is often hard to find, and think this can especially be the case with music. I created this course to provide clarity and insight to anyone who is curious about how music works. While this way of learning takes time and effort, this course will teach you real skills and give you the knowledge to make great sounding music.
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.
