ABOUT THE INSTRUCTORS:

Joe Schulte has been working as a musician and musical instructor in Central Oregon for over 20 years. He was a founding member and mandolinist for the popular Central Oregon band Moon Mountain Ramblers and currently plays with the Popcorn Trio and Skillethead bluegrass band. Joe started teaching guitar, mandolin, banjo and bass in the early 2000’s, working at Central Oregon Music, Music Makers and Cascade Community School of Music and then went on to run his own music school String Theory Music in Downtown Bend from 2007 to 2020. Being a music lover, Joe really enjoys a large variety of music. As a player, he values learning and respecting traditional approaches to root music while also experimenting with blending different styles, pushing to create new sounds and approaches to all kinds of music both old and new. As a teacher, Joe really puts the focus on fun, and most often supports learning by ear methods, making the learning process as hands on as possible by encouraging students to learn how the music sounds and feels right from the start.

Conner Bennett is a songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who finds creative energy by spending time in nature. While he has spent years studying and playing “American” roots music, he has traveled to various other countries and learned from their musical traditions as well. Best known for his expressive improvisational skills and ability to play many different styles of music— from folk to blues, funk, jazz, etc., Conner loves to play them all. Most importantly, Conner recognizes the healing benefits of music for both the listener and the musician and values his time spent teaching others to play music.
