About

Photo of Jacob holding a mandolin

My name is Jacob deGroot-Maggetti.

I am a musician. I play in many styles, from classical to bluegrass to jazz to trad. I play many instruments, from violin to mandolin to guitar to bass. I sing in and direct choirs. Learn more about the music I make.

I am a learner. I am always searching for more effective ways to think, work and learn. I am an avid reader with a thirst for knowledge. I work to develop new skills, learning by doing.

I am a community builder. By directing choirs, leading jam sessions, performing at porch parties and busking at the local farmer's market, I aim to bring people together through music.

I am a programmer, and I'm currently looking for a job as a software developer. I would like to work for a company that makes educational resources more widely available (think, for example, Duolingo, Brilliant, Codecademy, Khan Academy, etc.) and/or in a position where I can make use of my knowledge of music and music theory. If you would like to hire me, or are aware of an open position for which I might be a good fit, please do get in touch. For a sense of who I am and what I do, I encourage you to take a look at my GitHub profile and my Curriculum Vitae.
