Jake Lebbin is a self-taught pianist who began teaching himself how to play the piano at the age of eleven. Mr. Lebbin credits much of his independent learning to utilize the internet, namely YouTube, to learn music and practice the demonstrated technique for each song. Although Mr. Lebbin learned to play mostly by ear, he gained more experience playing via sheet music when he was performing in his high school band. Although Mr. Lebbin was learning how to read print music, he continued his independent practicing through YouTube. As his talent in piano progressed, Mr. Lebbin took lessons through the School of Rock where he experienced performing in a band setting with other musicians. Mr. Lebbin currently practices playing the piano 6-7 hours each week. In addition to being a musician, Mr. Lebbin also enjoys playing sports in his spare time.
