Jeff Monroe  
(
Audio Engineering, Recording and Mastering)
    Jeff has had a love affair with music since the
    third grade, when he first experienced the
    joys of playing piano.  Since then, Jeff’s
    creative spirit has continued to explore and
    expand innovative and unique sounds, fueled
    by an ongoing, inner passion to push the
    musical envelop. Who knew then that this
    would be the beginning of a talented musical
    career that
would span from musician to producer, from sound engineer to studio
ownership?  

With his fingers always busy tapping the rhythm of his favorite songs, Jeff
soon progressed to playing percussion in fifth grade, and by junior high he
was successfully performing in concert band and jazz band at Princeton
Junior High School.  In high school he was a member of  the concert band,
symphonic band, jazz band, and acapella choir. As a fourteen-year-old, Jeff’
s desire to perform launched his professional career, and he’s been
drumming his way across the U.S. and around the world ever since. At
fifteen, he played drums on his first studio session, and has since played
on hundreds of songs for independent artists.  Jeff began playing in local
bands and was featured on WEBN’s Album Projects 6 and 10. He wrote
and produced the lead off track of WBLZ’s Summer Jam ’87 album “Bing
Bop Boom.”  In 1984, Jeff  started to pursue the art of recording, starting at
Group Effort Studios in late 1989, where he became co-owner in 1991. He
has engineered and mixed hundreds of albums and songs, both locally
and nationally, including recording and producing projects for Grammy
Award winning producer Ric Wake with Wake Productions.

From 1989 through 1995, Jeff performed both locally and abroad with
Robin Lacy & DeZydeco.  Their music lead them on exciting US
Department of Defense tours of Turkey, Greece, Italy, Spain, Germany,
Croatia, Kuwait, The United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, and Diego
Garcia. Jeff’s sound was a natural draw, and his talent led people to
pursue him for teaching opportunities. He was an adjunct professors for
NKU’s advanced audio class during the fall of 2008. He currently helps
artists and recordists understand the principals and art of audio capture,
mixing, and mastering. He is a mastering engineer for SongMastering.com
an on-line mastering service, where he experiences great reward in
adding the final audio finish to various artist’s compositions.

When he’s not in the studio, Jeff performs with Jerry’s Little Band, Mostly
Shake and occasionally The Spookfloaters.  One of Jeff’s favorite sayings
is: “I’ve spent thousands of hours on both sides of the glass.”  As
rewarding as his professional career has been, he finds great personal
satisfaction in instructing today’s young artists and perhaps inspiring them
into becoming tomorrow’s award-winning musical entertainers.
    Pat Foxworthy has been painting for over
    40 years and has continously taken
    classes in oils, acrylics and watercolors
    at Thomas More College and with local
    artists such as Marge Schleppy, Jerry
    Bond and Michol Williamson. She still
    participates in watercolor classes, not
    only to improve her technique but also to
    keep in contact with other artist.

    Pat has shown her work in many local art
    shows and as a result has sold several
paintings.  She has also painted on commission but has also given
her paintings as gifts.  She says it is most gratifying when people tell
me they enjoy my art.

Pat has worked with students one on one and has held a summer art
class at The Musical Art Center in Cincinnati. To help others grow and
develop their artistic abilities is a rewarding and exciting experience
she says.

Pat believes that whether you become a well known artist or paint for a  
hobby, painting like music is therapy for the soul, and you can
participate all your life.

    Amy Kuykendall is a violin teacher
    from Cincinnati. She has been loving
    and playing violin for 20 years, and
    performs frequently as a street
    musician, at restaurants and at the
    Appalachian Festival at Coney Island.

    She enjoys being part of the
    Cincinnati Metropolitan Orchestra,
    and plays often at her childhood
    church. She lived overseas for two
    years on a missionary ship in
Southeast Asia whose crew worked with local churches, provided
educational and Christian books, held programs of all kinds and
did practical work to help in whatever way was needed. After years
of customer service jobs, she is so happy to be able to teach and
play for a living. Amy was home schooled and is so grateful that her
parents saw the benefit of music lessons for all their children. Even
just for personal enjoyment it is well worth the time and effort, but it
is a lifelong gift and can also become a source of income! Amy is
very indebted to Marion Peraza de Webb, her wonderful teacher
through high school and beyond who helped her reach a high level
of skill and confidence, which she in turn hopes to pass on to all
her students.
Amy has Suzuki Method teacher training and a high respect for the
Suzuki Method but also supplements with some traditional
teaching aspects. She loves teaching both children and adults, and
encourages you to go ahead and learn an instrument if it is even a
little dream in the back of your head. Talent is learned, and it's a
shame to leave it uncultivated!
