About Jennifer T.

Born and raised in Denver, Colorado, Jen T. was 13 years old when she picked up her first guitar, rescuing her mom’s dusty old acoustic from the family’s attic. Quickly developing a love for the instrument, Jen headed west to sharpen her craft at LA’s esteemed Musicians Institute, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in music performance.
While studying at MI, Jen formed the folk-pop duo Jen & Abby with vocalist Abby Miller. With their quirky style and catchy tunes, the band soon gained a devoted following through gigs at many renowned LA venues, including The Key Club, House of Blues, and Hotel Café. Following the release of their 2008 debut album Cannot Rearrange, the band’s music was featured in multiple films and television commercials.
Jen has been sought out by many other artists seeking her particular blend of expertise and performance savvy.
She relishes the chance to put her skills to the test in a wide variety of musical genres. In addition to writing and performing, Jen keeps busy as a private instructor to dozens of aspiring guitarists. She also has done over 1000 online instructional videos totaling up to more than 40 million views for YouTube and Mahalo website. Her various Mahalo website "Learn Guitar" apps have over 300,000 downloads and has had an itunes #1 ibook on how to play guitar.

Best guitar teacher I have ever had

Jen is a fabulous guitar player that has an innate ability to teach with understanding and patience. If I am not understanding a certain exercise, she is able to break it down for me in multiple ways so I can better understand how to perform.
I tend to get nervous to share new songs I have written but Jen's down-to-earth personality has definitely helped me begin to break out of shell.
I highly recommend Jen as your next music teacher.

Awesome passionate personality with ton of knowledge

It has been a total joy being instructed by Jen. Jen's passion in playing the guitar is extremely radiant, so you know you're in good hands with a passionate instructor. Myself not being the fastest of learners, totally felt comfortable by Jen's style of teaching. She provided a very relaxed and confident atmosphere :)I came in with an idea of what I wanted from the guitar, and Jen provided structure and guidance from the ground-up. You will totally feel your money being used on a superb, passionate, and knowledgable instructor! :)
