About Jimmy

Hello! My name is Jimmy Gonzales, I am a musician with 42 years experience and have been teaching guitar, beginning bass, and drums since 1995. I am very excited to now be a part of the Music and Arts Center teaching staff and look forward to meeting new students. Music is my world and as a music teacher it is extremely gratifying to watch students play music and express themselves no matter if it is a hobby or they become professional working musicians.

As for me, I have played and toured the world with Ike Turner and The Kings of Rhythm in '05/'06 and have jammed with many musicians in the music industry.

I have also written and recorded original music and continue to follow my dreams and express myself through music.

I look forward to this new venture with the Music and Arts Center and being a part of your musical journey!

Rock On !!!
