2011 Recital

Our Spring Recital was terrific! This year’s event was our 12th annual recital. Everyone who participated was absolutely amazing! Over 100 students shared their talents, skills, and love for music on Sunday May 15, 2011. I would like to congratulate every Student, Teacher, Parent, and JFM Associate for a fantastic afternoon.

Summer Guitar Tips by Forrest Smith

It's summertime which means sun and fun. So here are some things to remember about the sun and the heat when it comes to your guitars and other instruments.

  • First of all, too much heat is never good for your guitars. Let's put it this way-when a repairman wants to take an instrument apart, heat is usually the best method.
  • The reason is because most every part of the instrument is fastened with some type of wood glue or rosin which become unstable under sustained heat. Even some epoxies tend to move under such stress.
  • With that in mind it's best to think about the environment your instrument is going to be in for any length of time. The inside of a car (or trunk) in the summer is NEVER a good place. Temperatures can soar well over 100 degrees inside a vehicle in some cases and can easily cause structural damage or finish issues-even affecting the setup of an instrument.
  • Another situation to avoid if possible is direct sunlight. This can fade finishes and cause structural damage as well-especially if your instrument is a dark color. It can even cause lighter color finishes to 'yellow'.
  • If you have your guitar outside or in a hot environment, just try to find some shade as soon as possible or don't leave it there for any length of time. It takes a while for the instrument to cool off (just like a hot iron or stove) and when it does, you may be left with a guitar that looks, sounds or plays differently than the way you want to.
