Jeff Adkins' mission is to serve the greater Orlando community by helping both young and adult music students to further their knowledge of what it takes to be a good musician. Jeff is excellent with children and Adults. Before choosing Orlando for his home base, Jeff literally logged over one thousand performances working on cruise ships.
Along the way Jeff has learned other instruments and what it takes to be a consummate professional. "I use proven methods to help the student accomplish their goals. Most methods use a play along CD so the student can advance quickly." "I also add my own personal addendum to supplement what is not offered in a book." Jeff is a professional musician that teaches.
If you want to learn guitar, bass, singing, keyboard, theory, songwriting and get great advice about performing. He could be just the right instructor for you or your child.

"Jeff is an excellent guitar teacher. Whether you are a beginner or have been playing for awhile, he can assess your skills and take your playing to another level. I had been self taught and had been playing for several years, but I felt I needed direction to further my talent and I did not have enough knowledge to know how to do that. Jeff was the perfect teacher. The lessons were challenging at times, but Jeff is a patient, supportive instructor who makes learning fun. Eventually, I was even able to play rhythm guitar in an Adult Lab Band that Jeff had set up for his students, which was a awesome, first time experience for me. He has also given me the opportunity to play and perform live at some local gigs which was way cool. This has really boosted my confidence as a player and a singer. Jeff will help you take your playing where YOU want to take it. I would recommend him to anyone of any age. "

"Jeff is an excellent guitar teacher. Whether you are just starting out or want to expand your current abilities, Jeff is the best. I had been a self-taught guitar player for a number of years. I wanted to become a better player, but did not have the know-how to go beyond what I already knew. Jeff will work with you based on your abilities to take your guitar skills to the next level. I was able to take part in an Adult Lab Band hosted by Jeff and had a blast playing with a band of like-minded players. Jeff also introduced me to playing some live gigs which gave me a greater degree of confidence playing and singing for an audience. It has been a lot of fun, which is what learning should be. For anyone, child or adult, who would like to pursue their goal of playing the guitar, I would highly recommend Jeff Adkins."

"I can say with confidence that Jeff is the best guitar instructor in the Central Florida area. No matter what style you are looking to pursue, be it rock or blues (which I quickly learned from Jeff are the same things) or jazz or pop, Mr. Adkins will equip you with the skills necessary to excel. As with anything practice is essential. With Jeff as your teacher, you are motivated to practice. Jeff is a great teacher for all ages, and can get you shredding in no time."
