Jerry Oliver had already spent time playing professionally when he realized he had a knack for communicating musical ideas to others and enjoyed showing people how quickly they could play something that sounded cool even when they had no prior musical training or experience.
Jerry began teaching guitar lessons part time in 1993 while he was still in music school. By 1996 his teaching schedule was so full he made the decision to dedicate himself to teaching and performing music full time.
Jerry has taught hundreds of students of all ages and levels in Minneapolis and now in the Nashville area since 2003. Past students have went on to become students of guitar and music at other schools like The Berkeley School Of Music and GIT, play professionally in bands, work in TV, record their music, play talent shows, write their own songs, and many have learned to play and enjoy the guitar for their own private enjoyment!
You can be his next student!

"Jerry was the perfect instructor for me as someone who was a beginner. He will design your lessons based on what you want to learn whether that be rock, blues, country, finger picking, flat picking, or sight reading. Not only will you learn to play guitar, but you'll also learn some music theory. Jerry loves music."

"As an adult student picking up the guitar for the first time, I was very self conscious about appearing"dumb". Jerry's patience erased those early doubts and his passion for the guitar soon became my passion. He customizesthe lessons to the types of music that I like and gave me advice on selecting guitars when I was ready to upgrade my instrument. The convenience of lessons at my house means that I do not have to take my guitar into the office any more on lesson days!"

"Jerry is a sincere, punctual and responsible guitar teacher. He is teaching my daughter during last 4 years. Now she is 14 and really enriched herself from Jerry's lesson. Jerry is student-friendly and accommodative. I highly recommend his name to all of my friends looking for a perfect guitar teacher. Subhankar Mukhopadhyay Nashville, TN 37211"

"I began taking guitar lessons from Jerry in 1997 when I was 7 years old and stuck with him up until Jerry left for Nashville in 2003. I'm now 22 and recently graduated from Berklee College of Music with a degree in guitar performance. I would not be where I am today without the excellent instruction Jerry gave me. He taught me how to read music from the very beginning which gave me a huge advantage when I went to school for music. Most teachers would just skip the reading and do the fun stuff, especially in a very young player, but he is very patient and knows the importance of reading. I would recommend Jerry for anyone. Whether you're a beginner looking to learn a few tunes, or an advanced player looking to make a career in music."

"Jerry teaches my teenaged son and has for over two years. He is not only relevant with song choice but makes it fun while insisting on the scales, chords...the basics. Ross has made significant strides in both technique and confidence. Jerry is prepared each lesson with a plan that reinforces a concept but make exception my son has something he really wants to learn during that lesson. Jerry has been willing to work around Ross's busy school schedule including last minute accommodation for athletic events, social events, or summer trips. I would say it is hard to find a more willing mentor that is truly invested in our son's growth as a musician, development as a young man, and progress as an artist."
