About Me

Jarred Garneau started playing guitar at 13 years old. Initially inspired by mainstream rock bands that peak most young guitarists interest, Jarred wanted to pick up a real guitar instead of opting for Guitar Hero like most kids his age at the time. After starting private guitar lessons and revealing natural talent, Jarred started branching off into different genres. In high school, he joined the Jazz Band, which came in 2nd place in the state competition.​

Jarred's guitar playing only picked up after high school. He played as much as he could and built his name in the New Hampshire and Southern Maine music community, joining any local jam sessions he could find. He further explored his advanced style of blues playing after being re-inspired by the old blues masters (particularly the slide playing of Duane Allman) and formed his first band in 2015, The Freestones. His bands have played popular local venues including The Press Room, The Stone Church, as well as local festivals. 

 

Jarred formed his latest group, The Ferret Brothers, a group that pays homage to Django Reinhardt, in 2018. He also currently studies with Dani Rabin, and is attending the prestigious Berklee College of Music for his Bachelor's in Music Performance for Guitar.

As much as Jarred likes to play and continue his own music education, what he enjoys even more is teaching the gift of guitar playing to others. Now, with years of experience under his belt, he specializes in teaching genres rock, country, alternative, blues, jazz, funk, soul and folk. He also teaches all ages and skill levels, acoustic and electric. Whether you're brand new or trying to brush up on performance playing, Jarred has you covered.
