Well, it's been a busy Winter with many challenges. The weather has been nasty, and I've been down sick several times, once for a couple of weeks with a bad case of pneumonia. These challenges have me a bit behind schedule, but never fear, I'm catching up.
Rock U Tuscola is open for business, and we have our first students regularly attending guitar lessons. The Grand Opening scheduled for February 10 was canceled due to icy roads, but I'll be rescheduling it soon. Be on the lookout for updates.
I have some new folks working with me at Tuscola and will be updating the website in the next few days to include their pictures and bio information. Denny Ellis, Nathan Carman, and James Calderon are excellent additions to our team! Denny will be offering Beginning Guitar small group classes, as well as hosting some upcoming Songwriter Nights. Nathan is a highly skilled jazz musician offering instruction on a variety of instruments. James will be with us through mid-summer teaching violin/fiddle.
There's also some new blood at the Neoga studio. Jared Cole is taking on guitar students now since my schedule is over-full. He's an excellent player and cool cat! Bo Hardiek of Draven Studios has agreed to combine forces with us here to improve our recording studio offerings. Bo is an EXCELLENT recording engineer, guitarist, and all-around good dude. He brings upgraded equipment, as well as his expertise, to the Rock U establishment. Watch for a new page for Draven Studios on this website in the near future.
