As I had started to play the bass when I was 13 I quickly became a musical sponge and ceased every opportunity I had to play music every day. I played in garage bands with my friends and even jazz gigs with my father's co-workers. I spent a solid 5 years playing with as many local musicians as I could in my small Alaskan town. By 18 I had attended two years in the University's music Academy and been promoted to a mentor position. A year later I decided to pursue my music career in Los Angeles and educate myself at a Bachelor level at Musicians Institute. After 3 years of intense study and graduation I have played with many artists who have had songs placed on TV and film, recorded with Grammy-award winning names, and constantly on call for around the city. I am very excited to be a part
I teach music reading ,walking bass lines, classic rock, funk, and how to read chord charts.
I have taught private guitar, piano, bass and drum lessons since the late 70s in Salt Lake City, where I majored in jazz guitar performance, and since 1980 in Los Angeles. I make the lessons fun. Some of my students have received college scholarships and won cash prizes for music contests. All of them had fun while learning and improving on their instruments. *** Lesson Details *** I am very enthusiastic and can teach students how to read. If they do not want to read music, they can learn to play by ear. I can also show them where to put their fingers. During piano lessons, I often accompany students on guitar and suggest a scale for improvisation, so they can play the blues. During drum lessons, I often play bass so they can learn to groove. *** Travel Equipment *** They should have

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 ...
