Guitar and Bass Lessons • Sharing the Passion for Music

Jimmi O is a graduate of the Musician’s Institute Guitar Institute of Technology in Hollywood, California.  Before moving to Marin in 2001, he taught at The Blue Bear School of American Music in San Francisco.  He is currently working at the Marin Horizon School in Mill Valley where he has taught guitar and bass for the last ten years.  He also pioneered “The Jam Band” school of rock program at Marin Horizon School and ran the class for 6 years.

With over 30 years of playing experience, Jimmi O distills his knowledge into manageable steps that lead to the student’s rapid progress.  As a starting point for instruction, he invites his students to bring to their lessons ideas for songs they’re excited about learning.  In most instances, Jimmi O is able to teach them to sing and play a favorite song from start to finish within a remarkably short time.

An important part of Jimmi O’s program consists of regular guitar recitals (typically in the fall and spring), which give students a chance to share their music with family and friends, and to demonstrate their new skills.  In a fun and super supportive atmosphere, these recitals are an invaluable experience, and they also motivate regular practice.

Jimmi O teaches throughout the year at Marin Horizon School in Mill Valley, or he can come to your home.  Lessons are also available at his San Rafael studio for a reduced rate.

Please contact Jimmi O to discuss your interest in guitar or bass lessons, his availability, and rates.
