Betsey Jacobs took piano lessons early on and as an adult picked up the guitar. After 5 years she started attending “slow jams” at a local musician’s home. Though struggling at first to follow chord changes, playing music with other people, her motivation soared. Lessons with a Wernick Method teacher opened her to a completely new way of creating music.
After attending a Wernick Jam Camp in North Carolina she grew by leaps and bounds as a musician. She now plays music with her partner as the band Ripe for the Pickin’ and teaches guitar lessons.
