The Songs of Tom Petty
- School of Music class
*THIS IS AN ONLINE CLASS – NEW THURSDAY SECTION ADDED DUE TO POPULARITY*
At the request of several students, I’m offering a class where we’ll play the songs of Tom Petty. 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 You Wreck Me, Mary Jane’s Last Dance and Free Falling.
Please be prepared with a flat pick and capo.
This class will be held from 8:00-9:15pm ET on Wednesdays, May 12, 19, 26, June 2, 9, 16
This class will be held from 8:00-9:15pm ET on Thursdays, May 13, 20, 27, June 3, 10, 17

- Folk Rock
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.
