Teaching Stuff...

Take a look at my webpage!
My name is Jeremy...I have been playing for years. I received a degree in Music from the University of Akron in 1996 and have done grad work in music education at Bowling Green State University.

I teach a dozen students a week on several different instruments in the Cincinnati area.

My students range from about 4 years old to about 65- it's a great experience for everyone. I have taught private lessons for about 20 years now.

I am now taking students

Playing Stuff...

I play jazz around town solo or with different groups, I rock/ funk out with Big Whiskey, do the soul/ jazz thing with Thrownback Jack, and sometimes play in worship bands around town. If you happen to be in the area, come and check it out!

I'm playing a custom strat for most things and a custom tele or 335 copy for jazz stuff. On bass with Big Whiskey I use a Fender "Zone" bass. The guitars sometimes go through a Line6 pedalboard direct into the board on church gigs, or into various pedals and a Mesa Boogie amp on most other gigs.
