Edmonton Guitar Lessons TeacherJeari Czapla started playing Guitar when he was 6 years old in Transcona Winnipeg. It would be the Spring of 1971. Jeari’s first Guitar Teacher was his Dad who taught him Three Chords; E, A, D, on a borrowed family members guitar, ThanQ Cousin Lloyd Pakoo.

Once Jeari learned those Chord his dad said “Now Write a Song.” So Jeari did,.. he wrote his first song ever called, “Burnin’ Rubber”, a song about fast cars, because Jeari knew his dad liked fast cars.

“Dad was a Hard Rock who Loved Souped Up Cars, Drag Racing and Fancy Paint jobs on cars.” Says Jeari.

Jeari began his formal guitar studies in 1986 with Chet Breau owner of the Lenny Breau School of Music in Winnipeg and within a year quickly became Chet’s Prodigy. By 1988,  Jeari was teaching jazz guitar at the Lenny Breau School of Music.

Between 1988 & 1991, Jeari was studying weekly private music lessons in,

  • Classical Composition with Bruce Carlson, a MB University Composition Professor. Every Monday for 60 minutes.
  • Music Theory with Ruth Douglas, every Tuesday for an hour,
  • Classical Guitar with Paul Hammer, a MB University Guitar Professor, every Thursday for 60 minutes, and
  • Jazz Guitar with Chet Breau & Tim Cummings, every Wednesday for an hour.

In 1988, Jeari attended the University of Manitoba Music Program for two years and by 1991 he had moved to Edmonton to complete his studies in Music at the University of MacEwan.

In 1993, Jeari began performing as a freelance guitarist for various touring bands throughout the prairie provinces of Canada.

In 2003, Jeari Incorporated his company Czapla Music Studio and opened a store front in Sherwood Park AB. He became an Edmonton Guitar Teacher with over 80 guitar students, 10 drum students, 10 bass students, and 15 vocal students.

In 2003, Jeari published his Jazz Guitar Curriculum Course entitled “Opus One – for the Apprenticing Guitarist” which is currently used in 20 Schools of Music across the nation as their primary guitar method book. His Guitar Curriculum has positioned his School of Music to become a Certified Music College.
