Jaco Pastorious is Jeff’s idea of the ultimate bass player and musician. He shares with Jaco a love of melody that takes the bass out of a strict sideman role and into the spotlight as an expressive lead instrument. Comfortable on fretless as well as fretted electric bass and six string guitar, Jeff emphasizes that students should strive to be versatile but disciplined.

While having a broad background in performance, these days Jeff’s musical goal is to “pass on years of knowledge through teaching”. His greatest satisfaction comes from watching kids become stronger players. His formula for getting there is simple: “practice, practice, practice”. Jeff also applies this method in his pursuit of physical fitness.

Steeped in the traditions of American roots music, Chip’s favorites include the Allman Brothers Band, Govt. Mule, Derek Trucks and Dr. John. It was the Beatles on Sullivan, however, that awakened his desire to pursue music as his life’s calling. “Music has been a wonderful part of life for me”, states Chip. “It’s opened many doors and has allowed me to enjoy a dedication to an art that has made me a much better player.”
