Tim Metz (Drums) is a native of Sacramento, having left to attend William Paterson University in Wayne, NJ earning a BM in Jazz Studies in 2001. He returned to Sacramento in the Fall of 2001 where he quickly became one of the top call jazz drummers. In between a heavy teaching schedule—over 40 drum students per week—Metz continues to consistently perform with some of the world's greatest musicians, including alto sax masters Jeff Clayton and Jacam Manricks, pianist's Joe Gilman, the legendary Donald Brown, Art Hirahara, and Jim Martinez, guitarist Larry Koonse, bassists Darek Oles and Todd Johnson, and The Santa Rosa Symphony Pops to name a few. He is also one of YouTube's most popular Jazz Drum Lesson Creators with over 2 million views on his channel.


Brenden Lowe (Piano) began playing piano at the age of 3. Musically influenced by his father, Malcolm Lowe, the Concertmaster of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Brenden started classical training at New England Conservatory in Boston, Massachusetts. After studying with Angel Rivera, a nationally honored teacher, Brenden heard a recording of Itzak Pearlman playing with a great jazz pianist by the name of Oscar Peterson. From that point on Brenden’s focus switched from classical to jazz piano. He attended the New School University in Manhattan, New York in which he received his Bachelors of Fine Arts in Jazz Piano Performance. While at The New School, Brenden was able to study piano with such names as Eric Reed, (former pianist for Wynton Marsalis), Geri Allen, Benny Green, Aaron Goldberg, and many others. Brenden now resides in Sacramento, where he both performs and teaches, and continues to progress his Jazz Piano Education business.


Nicolas Martinez (Bass) is a very talented young musician. At only 17, he has become one of the most in demand bass players in the Sacramento area. A senior at Davis High School, Martinez has been accepted to and plans on attending the New School in New York in the fall. Don't miss this opportunity to hear the beginning of what will undoubtedly be a wonderful career in music.
