Mr Jack Helm

Mr Helm started learning guitar around 18 year ago and has been teaching for close to 10 years. His main focus in lessons is teaching students how to play songs that they enjoy whilst also ensuring that students learn the important fundamentals of guitar playing and music so that they have a good foundation for their guitar playing and musical education in the future.

He also enjoys teaching intermediate and advanced guitar playing techniques to those students who are more experienced and have been playing for several years.



Excellent teaching, good ensemble opportunities. Encouragement and support for exams and competitions. Eve has really enjoyed her saxophone lessons and the ensembles and has progressed well. It has been a great opportunity for her to borrow the baritone sax to play in the ensembles. Thank you to all at JMS!


I like how kind and supportive the staff are. I like how the staff approach problems with solutions rather than barriers. I like how the staff understand childhood development in an holistic way. I like how the staff respect the voice of the child. Thank you so much to John Pearse, a more patient and caring teacher you couldn't hope to find.


Lovely teachers and very supportive admin staff.
