At the age of six Jake’s dad got him a guitar, and Jake started to play music. I only played the guitar for a little bit. When I was a little kid because my dad try to get me into play guitar, but I did not like playing the guitar. When my dad left my mom I stop playing the guitar. So, I stop playing for a short time until my mom had met my stepdad. My stepdad played just about every instrument you can think of. My stepdad got me into playing music. My stepdad first shows me how to play guitar. After showing me how to play the guitar my stepdad also showed me how to play the drums and the piano.
How did you learn how to play the guitar? I first started lessoning to “Smells Like Teen Spirit by Nirvana and Say it Ain’t So by Weezer.” I love lessoning to those bands, and I could lesson to them all day. So, I grab my guitar, and with the help of my stepdad, I learn how to play those two songs. After my stepdad showed me how to play that two songs; I basically taught myself. I started to learn how to play the guitar by reading the sheet music and by practicing. The hardest part about learning how to play the guitar was learning the musical strings. According to Matt “The hardest parts are the physical parts. The pain. The stubbornness of one 's fingers. There is a thing called muscle memory, which is basically the ability to finger chords and scales without the need for adjustment or much thought.”
After, learning how to play the guitar I started to learn how to play the song from my favorite bands which are Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, and Weezer....

When it comes to school Jake has balance playing music and school work. Playing music for me helps me study. Mya Achidov says “Some of the brain benefits of learning a musical instrument include increased comprehension and math skills, better coordination, and a greater capacity for memory. It does this by release more BDNF, CREB, and synapsin I, all elements that strengthen mental capacities. So, playing a musical instrument produces brain-building compounds and neural growth factors that are making you smarter, stronger, and better at doing activities throughout your day.
Jake enjoys playing the guitar he plans on continuing to playing at more local venues. He wants to start showing more of his friends how to play guitar.
