About Jake Magalhaes
Music Teacher, Professional
Location: Rocky Point, NY
Speaks: Portuguese, English
Instructs: Bass Guitar, Drums, Guitar, Music Theory, Piano, String Bass
Education: Associates degree in music
Performance Experience: I have been playing in bands since high school and still play in bands today. I have also been playing in big bands and orchestras as well.
Teaching Experience: I've have been teaching for 4 to 5 years. I've have taught kids through adults.
Teaching Philosophy: I believe it is important to have the basic fundamentals down in order to establish a solid foundation. Once you have the fundamentals down, I feel it is important to be able to express yourself and feel free to let the music flow. I believe it's important to know song and sheet music but also to be able to write your own music as well.
