|My passion with music started
at a very early age. I completed both my Bachelor's degree (California
State University Northridge) and Master's degree (University
of Southern California) in Guitar Performance. I've studied
with teachers like Pepe Romero and Frederick Noad in addition
to participating in many Master's Classes.
I can't think of any 'bad habit' in playing the guitar
I haven't had at some point. In the first couple years of
my musical development I sang badly out of tune. I hated performing
and used to shake terribly. Why do I share this with you?
Because I've overcome all the initial obstacles· bad technique,
singing out of tune, poor ear training and fear of performing.
It has been one of my deepest joys watching my students
do the same. I could fill a book with stories of students
who were 'too shy' to sing for me that are now performing
publicly. They lead worship in their churches, lead music
at summer camps, perform in coffeehouses, etc. So yes, I have
had wonderful training, but more importantly, I love teaching/coaching
others to excel.
An 'about Jean' wouldn't be complete without mentioning
my source of life and strength. At seventeen I became a Christian.
Within a month of my conversion, my guitar teacher left for
Europe and gave me all her students. Still in high school,
I had 30 guitar students. I feel very blessed with the gift
of this career and delight in sharing it with others.
