Earl Jones is a multi-instrumentalist and singer who has performed for NATO, national TV, and from the magic circle of The Grand Ole Opry where Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Elvis, and other greats performed. He has played rock, country, bluegrass, blues, and jazz professionally. He has worked every aspect of professional music: clubs, concerts, churches, recording sessions, radio, TV, and written commercial jingles. By his own admission, Earl has been a mercenary musician, a hired gun. This kind of training gave him the foundation to start what would become one of the most successful private music schools in the country.
In 1975, Earl started teaching guitar with four students which grew to twenty within a month, twenty more the next month, and so forth until he was teaching 150 students per week with a waiting list. He realized the need to train teachers to handle the student load and subsequently started a teacher training program that included not only all of the musical knowledge and skills but communication skills, people skills, and patented techniques and methods. His teaching method consistently turned out top level musicians who have performed in every venue from MTV to The Grand Ole Opry. The number one requirement for instructors at Earl Jones Music School is a love of music, a passion for teaching, and compassion for people of all ages.
