I am Instructor/owner Jake Smith, two time East Coast Music Award winner with The Jimmy Swift band and The Fed Pennies. I have produced three cds with The Fed Pennies, recorded and produced Terra Spencer's debut album Other People's Lives , directed several music videos, and opened for Ozzy Osbourne. The Fed Pennies have had singles in regular rotation across Canada and the USA and were featured on a SEGA video game with Sum 41. I have over 20 years experience in the music industry, teaching private lessons and running summer music camps.
Jake Smith Music is dedicated to educating students of all ages and backgrounds. We offer private and online lessons in various instruments including Guitar, Drums, Bass, Piano, Voice, Ukulele and our new program, Music Production and Beat Making where you can learn how to record and produce your songs. We also offer Summer Rock Camp and Country Camp.
I am a strong believer that everyone should be able to have a life of music. That's why I became a teacher. Whether you're a just a beginner or an advanced student needing guidance, let's explore music together!
I offer both group and private lessons, separated by skill level, for many different instruments. If you're unsure about which level is appropriate for you, I also offer placement tests!
