The Old Town School is honored to host a special workshop and conversation with the esteemed lead guitarist of Steely Dan. Join Jon Herington as he ruminates on his approach to mastery on the guitar. He will address the basic elements of music, the value of listening, finding individual style, and expanding one’s knowledge of the instrument. Jon will provide materials to work on and demonstrate a couple of tunes as well. This will be a valuable experience to anyone who strives to enhance their own musical journey. If time permits, there will be a Q&A session.
Jon is a longtime New York City-based guitarist, singer/songwriter, producer, teaching artist, and bandleader. He is the leader of the Jon Herington Band and has been the guitarist of choice with the iconic band Steely Dan for both recording and touring since 1999. Jon also tours regularly with unique song stylist Madeleine Peyroux and has previously toured with Donald Fagen, Boz Scaggs, Bette Midler, Phoebe Snow, and Bobby Caldwell.
