Teacher Feature: Jesse Hawkins, Guitar/Vocal/Ukulele Instructor
The Music Abode family is so excited to welcome Jesse Hawkins to our teaching team!
Jesse moved to Orange County from Colorado to pursue his music degree at Vanguard University. After graduating with his BA in Music and Worship Arts, he began teaching both guitar and voice, as well as working at different churches and doing various recording projects. More recently he is also performing in his local and touring indie/folk band with fellow Music Abode teacher, Jenny Payne. His love of all genres of music and natural motivation for learning has always led him to try new techniques, which he imparts to his students, pushing them to fulfill their potential.
When asked about his teaching style, Jesse says that he likes his students to “be themselves and to have fun so that they can learn in a casual but challenging environment. I come down to the students level so that they can get the fundamentals in a way they can understand and give them opportunities to express themselves from a safe and comfortable place.”
With his creative problem-solving, contagious energy, and vast knowledge of music theory, Jesse is sure to fill up his schedule quickly! Visit our contact page to see if Jesse teaches in your area!
