Introducing Rachel Meriem

The studio would like to welcome it’s newest guitar instructor: Rachel Merriam!

Rachel Merriam is currently completing her Bachelor of Music degree in Jazz Performance at Western Connecticut State University with a concentration in Jazz Guitar. She started playing guitar at age 9, and played her first gig at age 12. At age 16 she started playing with funk groups S.O.N.S of Funk and Smoovtime, led by Parliament Funkadelic drummer Rico Lewis, playing gigs in the New England and New York area as well as music festivals in Ohio and Indiana.

Rachel has had the privilege of studying with guitarist Christopher Morrison since high school. She has also studied theory and improvisation with saxophonist, pianist and arranger Jon Blanck. At WestConn, Rachel has had the opportunity to play with pianist Orrin Evans and trumpeter Sean Jones as part of their guest artist series. She also works as musical director for recording artist Samantha Cole’s Vocal Showcases.

Rachel loves playing music of all styles, and working with students of all ages and levels. She can be seen playing gigs in the tri-state area with various jazz groups, S.O.N.S of Funk, and the reggae/rock band Bahama Mama & the Painkillers.
