Hi! I’m Roy Jackson.
I started playing the Christmas that I was seven years old. I picked out a guitar from a catalog and have been ‘rockin’ in the freeworld’ for over 32 years!
After graduating from the Spokane Falls Community College in Commercial Music/Jazz Studies, I continued my music and business education at both Eastern Washington University and Central Washington University. Shortly after I started Learn-to-Burn School of Music in 1990. I figured out early on that, “If I have to work all day, I might as well do something I love—playing my guitar!”.
“If I have to work all day,
I might as well do something
I love—playing my guitar!”
As an educator, I have focused on teaching private and group lessons. These lessons include acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar and vocals.
Musically I have performed on numerous local commercials for both radio and television. I also perform with several area bands.
As fate has it, I am now the instructor of the Commercial Music Program at SFCC. Hey, I guess what goes around, comes around, right? Check out our student pics. Who knows, one of them might be the next Eddie Van Halen!!
