Hi, I’m Jake Faulkner. I am a professional musician based in our wonderful Los Feliz neighborhood. I am a graduate of Cal Arts and play in several established musical groups ranging from Bluegrass to Classical to Latin and Rock n Roll.
I have an easy and natural approach to music that will work with you to gain the skills you would like to have on your instrument. I feel equally comfortable teaching you how to play Mississippi John Hurt on the guitar or how to slap the bass like Willie Dixon, or play a studied classical work - or if you want to learn to compose, I can show you how to arrange for horns, strings, harps, etc!
I tour all over the word playing and lecturing about music with my group, The Americans. With them I have lectured at:
Vanderbilt University in Nashville
California Institute of the Arts
UC San Diego
CSU East Bay, Fresno, and San Bernardino
Grammy Museum in Los Angeles
University of Edinburgh
University Berlin, Munster, Göttingen, Oldenburg, and Erfurt
University of East Anglia
University of Liverpool
Museum of the Americas in Madrid
Haus De Kulturen der Welt in Berlin
U.S Embassy in Madrid, Berlin, Stockholm, Brussels, and Warsaw
U.S. Consulate in Barcelona and Krakow
