A Message From The Music Heaven’s Founder

Thank you for stopping by our website! My name is Jesse Charles; my wife Lindsey and I are career musicians. We launched The Music Heaven with the distinct notion of sharing our love of music. With 40 years of experience as performers and teachers, we’ve developed a comprehensive study of music, instruments and singing. 

There is an ineffable joy that comes from playing a live performance. The reward for us is the audience’s reaction; watching people dance and sing along is pure delight.

We bring this enthusiasm and motivation to teaching at The Music Heaven and are eager to help others learn in a supportive environment. We offer music lessons in San Jose for all skill levels. Learning anything new can be challenging, but with the right effort and repetition, you’ll progress at a good pace.

Rock on,

“My son has been with Jesse since the fifth grade and is now a senior in high school. Jesse mixes up his lessons to make them fun and entertaining. At the end of each year Jesse organizes an event to showcase his proud students. It’s always fun to watch them play their hearts out on stage.”

“When my son was 12 years old, he asked if he could have guitar lessons. I contacted Jesse at The Music Heaven. From the beginning, it was clear that Jesse has a true passion for music. He is a skilled musician and a great teacher. Jesse is supportive, patient, personable and committed to teaching his students. My son looks forward to his weekly lessons! I know the major reasons my son has continued is because of the rapport he has with Jesse, as well as the enjoyment he gets when learning and playing songs. If you are looking for a guitar teacher and Jesse has an available spot in his schedule, do not hesitate!”
