Starting this July, Jennifer Batten — one of the most creative, forward thinking, and shred-tastic guitarists out there (not to mention a player with the chops and drive to tour with both Michael Jackson and Jeff Beck, among others) — is taking her wisdom and artistry out to the musical public with a series of free clinics, paid seminars, and solo multimedia shows.
The free clinics are part of a Sam Ash tour where Jennifer will demo the DigiTech Trio pedal, the Fishman TriplePlay Wireless Guitar Controller, and the Washburn Parallaxeguitar, as well as detail some of her stunning techniques. Tour dates are below.
The paid seminars — Jennifer Batten's Self-Empowerment for the Modern Musician Experience — are unique and immersive events with co-host Jesse Solomon (founder of Colorado's Academy of Guitar) where all musicians will learn, along with other essential data, how to build confidence for the stage, seek new revenue streams, shoot and edit music videos, manage tours, program your brain for success, identify career do's and don'ts, and otherwise "stay motivated, inspired, and tenacious." The three-and-a-half-hour event also includes a mini-concert by Jennifer and Jesse.
These Self-Empowerment for the Modern Musician seminars are truly rare chances for players to take a "peek under the hood" at what it takes to follow your musical dreams—all directed by a performer who has "been there/done that," achieved success, managed the ups and downs of a treacherous and unpredictable industry, and knows how that industry really works. Call it an essential sit down for ambitious musicians. Tickets for this jam-packed, info-rich seminar are $49 in advance, and $55 at the door. Tour dates are below.
In addition, Jennifer's fantastic solo-guitar multimedia shows are currently planned for fans in Sedona, Arizona (July 27) and Kansas City, Missouri (September 9). More details here.
