with Jaime VOCALS / GUITAR
Jaime teaches voice, guitar, and bass, and heads the Vocal Studio at NYC Guitar School. He has been teaching since 2001, and especially loves working with beginners.

Jaime grew up in western Connecticut, where he was inspired to play guitar after watching Nirvana Unplugged on MTV. He lived in Chapel Hill, NC; touring in rock, blues, and country bands. He then studied songwriting and recording, as well as guitar and voice, at Berklee College of Music. He continues to study voice in NYC with Marlon Saunders. Jaime was the frontman and songwriter for alt-rock band The Spanish Channel, which released three albums, opened for national acts, was mentioned in SPIN and Guitar World, and toured nationally.
