Jeff answers three questions about his upcoming course.
KM: Why this course now — what’s exciting to you about teaching this?
JR: It seems appropriate for me to be teaching now as I’m winding down my gigging career and can share the knowledge accrued during 48 years of involvement in “the biz.” Teaching has always been part of the equation for me.
KM: What can students expect from your course – what will they go home thinking/talking about?
JR: You can expect to go home with new information to digest that will move you forward in the evolution of your guitar playing, be it beginner, intermediate, or professional level.
KM: Why did you want to be part of the Knowledge Market – what’s the appeal or importance of this concept for you?
JR: As a proud Nyack resident and performer for many of Nyack’s Street Fairs, Farmers Markets, Earth Day celebrations, etc, I’m honored to be part of the knowledge market, and help contribute to what makes our town great.
Jeff’s class, Guitar Guidance, meets Thursday mornings from 12n-1:30p, February 21-March 14. Registration is open! Learn more and sign up his class at
