My name is Jon Spivack, and I am a parent ,an educator, and a musician who has been teaching and performing in the Sacramento area for over 25 years. I have a B.A. in Biological Sciences, a Master of Arts in Special Education ,and multiple teaching credentials. I have taught in a wide variety of settings, both in the classroom and as a private instructor in in the studio ( including The San Juan Unified School District). I also co-founded Learning Quest, a company that creates and markets educational materials for students. My new Jazz/Folk/and Blues CD, BRANCHING OUT, is now available on CD Baby.


Together we can work on the skills that will get you playing and learning while having a good time.

We can:

-- LEARN to strum and finger-pick; play solos and duets.

-- PURSUE band skills, ear training, and music fundamentals.

--WORK on music- reading and the basics...become literate in the language of music so you can learn independently!

--USE scales, licks, and arpeggios to create your own songs and / or lead ideas.

--SING AND PLAY simple, entertaining songs for FAMILY, CHURCH, or CLASSROOM .

--EXPLORE chords and progressions -simple to advanced.
