For class we have things like “Demo Derby,” where we had to record 5 live demos in 30 mins.
We have a class called “Inside the Music Industry” where learn priceless knowledge from the amazing Tom Willett.

Jerry has played guitar for just about everyone in Nashville, from Faith Hill, Rascal Flatts, and Dolly Parton, to The Civil Wars, and Miles currently tours with Kelly Clarkson. There are awesome!
