Lew Jones is singer/songwriter who plays guitar, mandolin, ukulele, banjo and harmonica.
He is an advanced guitarist with several CDs recorded. He was voted "Outstanding Folk Act" Crystal Award by The Portland Music Association and has opened for several major acts such as Donovan, Ray Manzerak of The Doors, Tower of Power, Los Lobos, and Buddy Guy. He teaches at three community colleges and for the City of Portland. He teaches in a relaxed manner where everyone's cognitive skills are relevant to learning music.
Education includes the PACE Graduate Program at PSU in Adult Education as well as graduate work in Art Therapy from Marylhurst University. In Lew's classes you will learn about theory as songs are used as educational templates and lectures are about interaction rather than controlled information. In other words FUN is the operative term in these engaging classes, with hands on experimentation.
