Hi everyone! We have had a great start to Term 2 at all the schools. Sounds like you all had a great holiday. Now let's learn some awesome new songs!
A huge CONGRATULATIONS to Katie, Jessica, Finn, Charlie and Leo at St Ignatius school for completing Guitar Book 1 in record time. You guys smashed that book! Book 2 here we go!
Keep an eye out for this blog. From now on I will be putting up a new post every week. Here is an awesome video to get us started. Gotye cover on one guitar - played by Walk Off The Earth.
Keep up the good work and remember, practise only on the days that you eat :-)

Jakub is a wonderful guitar teacher, who possesses the perfect mix of enthusiasm, patience and encouragement. Both my 10 year old son, Ted and I have loved having guitar lessons with Jakub and our playing has come on tremendously, thanks to Jakub's expertise. Bec Bardgett

Thank you for a fabulous concert last Saturday. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed it and we were impressed with how much Lawson had learnt over the year considering this is his very first foray into music. W loved the way that you combined the drums & the fabulous singer.
Thank you for the effort you have put into teaching music this year at Titirangi. Austin has really enjoyed his lessons, he has re-gained his love of playing music and started writing his own songs again! It was an amazing opportunity for him to get up and play on stage, increasing his confidence and allowing him to go on and be part of his school band (although playing drums rather than guitar :)).

Thank you again for your teaching & commitment to Caleb's music lessons while he was at Swanson. He loved his lessons with you & the end-of-year concerts were always a highlight for us! Caleb is now at Waitakere College and loving it! We took your advice and he is taking 'Music Advanced' as one of his core subjects. They have a great Music Dept. Caleb aced his preliminary ukulele & guitar tests and will be learning Keyboard next term. Music is his favourite subject & he's keen to join the school band. So, thank you Jakub, for igniting Caleb's love of music! And for being such a great teacher.
Thank you so much also for everything you do for Zach, it was such a confidence boost for him, to get over his nerves, introduce himself, play, make a mistake (and realise the world doesn't fall apart) and then the positive feedback at the end from the audience to top it all off. At the start of the year it was hard to even convince him to play more than a couple of chords with even my parents watching. I think it is such a great outlet for him to have his guitar, he has been playing all the time.
