  • Alt Folk
  • Americana
  • Folk
  • Guitar
  • School of Music class
  • Singer/Songwriter


This fall we are testing out a new way of learning by offering several online seats for a few in-person classes – this will be one of those classes. Instructors will Zoom those students into the classroom via iPad. Lessons will be recorded and links will be sent to both online and in-person students to playback at any time during the semester.

I fell in love with Nanci Griffith’s songs in the 1980s and am so excited to dedicate a semester to learning a few of her great songs. 
This class is for people who have relative comfort playing barre chords (same level as my Guitar 5 class). 
We’ll work on theory and technique while playing songs like Love At The Five And Dime and Trouble In The Fields

Please be prepared with a flat pick and capo.

Janet will run this class in a hybrid format, teaching both in-person and on Zoom. With advanced notice, in-person students are welcome to join classes online if they need.

This class will be held from 8:00-9:15pm ET on Wednesdays, Nov 3, 10, 17, Dec 1, 8, 15

Please note: Limited to 4 online students (16 yrs of age or older); Pre-sales are highly encouraged! Sales end 1 hour before the class begins. 3 in-person students are required for this class to meet. If a class is cancelled due to low enrollment, you will be notified and receive a full refund. 

Janet Feld

  • Folk Rock
  • Singer/Songwriter

Award winning singer-songwriter, Janet Feld, captivates audiences across the nation and listeners across the globe with engaging performances filled with her wry sense of humor and sassy playfulness.

Audiences find themselves moved as the music shifts from the engrossing true story, Rosalie’s Diamonds, that describes how Feld’s grandmother rescued her family from Nazi- occupied Austria in the late 1930’s to her deeply introspective work in I Met Myself to her description of life’s paradoxes in Messy Beauty, the title cut to her newest release.

Sought after for her talents as an opening artist, Janet has opened for Cheryl Wheeler, Aztec Two Step, John Gorka, Dar Williams, and Tom Kimmel. She has also performed at folk festivals from coast to coast throughout her over three decade career.

Janet’s recordings range from productions with a host of studio musicians to the simple clarity of a voice and guitar, with a touch of piano. Messy Beauty is a journey back to the studio after her last release, I Met Myself. After releasing a bare bones recording for her last album, she decided to record her latest with Doug Kwartler of The Lied To’s for a fuller sound.

In addition to performing, Janet teaches guitar and songwriting at The Passim School of Music. She is also Founder and Chief Music Officer of Janet’s Planet: Music Lessons For Humanoids, Inc., offering private lessons, weekend retreats and international excursions to people of all ages. Her goal is to help people experience the fact that you don’t have to be from the “special talented people” planet in order to play music.
