Jacob Vallejo, B.M.E.
Guitar Instructor

Jacob Vallejo, a native of Somerset, Texas began his career in music with playing trumpet throughout middle and high school. It wasn’t until high school at the age of 16 that he picked up his first guitar but his love and passion for the guitar grew quickly. After high school, he began studying jazz guitar under Joe Gonzales at Palo Alto College and played with the jazz and guitar ensembles. In the fall of 2009, Jacob graduated from Palo Alto College with his Associates in Music. Around this time Jacob began sharing his love for the guitar at Kazen Middle school where he served as a guitar instructor. Shortly, thereafter in January 2010, he started teaching at San Antonio Music Academy (SAMA). Alongside teaching, he continued his formal education at University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA) where he eventually earned his Bachelors in Music Education. While at UTSA Jacob studied classical guitar under Mike Ritcher. Currently, Jacob not only teaches private lessons at SAMA but he is the instructor for one of our ensemble groups, Bad Weather.  With much applause from his students and co-workers, Jacob was awarded 2017 Instructor of the Year. During his spare time, he plays guitar in a local rock group that is in the process of recording their first album.

My daughter has been registered here since she was 7. Each instructor she’s had has been very friendly and great to work with. Currently she has lessons with Ms Maria and we are so grateful for her and the entire SAMA staff. I can’t recommend enough.

San Antonio Music Academy is awesome, my son loves the guitar lessons and is super excited to attend every week! He started with zero experience and progressed surprisingly fast. Randy is an amazingly talented guitarist/teacher. He is very patient, yet knows how to push students to the next level. Highly recommend all the instructors, the staff is great!
