Mno-Bmadsen and Chi Ishobak have teamed up to support Pokagon and other Native American owned small businesses in southwest Michigan and northern Indiana. To encourage the Pokagon community to “Buy Native, Support Local,” a different Native American owned small business will be featured in this newsletter every month. This month we are happy to introduce you to Warren Guitar Lessons!
Jaime Warren began playing guitar at just 14 years old and started teaching guitar lessons six years later. He did this by working at various music stores whenever he could, and then in 2009, he formed his own business, Warren Guitar Lessons.
Jaime always knew he wanted to open a business, but for him, it was just a matter of developing the skill and reputation to do it. Because of this, he has a ton of experience in guitar. Jaime studied privately with many teachers over the years. He attended Musicians Institute in Hollywood for two years and IUSB for guitar. Jaime has also played in the local music scene over the years.
The inspiration behind opening Warren Guitar Lessons was his love for the guitar. He spends a lot of time playing it and feels blessed to have the opportunity to make a living out of it. Jaime loves that he can inspire people to want to get better at playing guitar.
Lessons are 30 minutes long and occur once a week. He schedules students for the same day and same time each week to keep the lessons consistent. He teaches a variety of styles, but most students want to learn rock guitar.
Warren Guitar Lessons can be found at https://www.warrenguitar.net/. Free trial lessons can also be scheduled by reaching out to Jaime at firstname.lastname@example.org or 574-229-6038.
If Jaime could say one thing to everyone, it would be to get out there and find something creative that interests you. He believes that it doesn’t matter if it's playing music or some other art or skill, but it's about the joy that one can get from these things that cannot be bought.
