Jon E. Gee knows a lot of famous musicians. In fact, he's one of them. The accomplished bass player, dubbed a "consummate professional" by his John Mellencamp Band colleague Mike Wanchic and praised for being "always positive" by lead guitarist Andy York, has toured the world, laying down reverberating bass lines for artists such as Billy Joel, Mick Jagger, and Melissa Etheridge.
Back home in Indiana, Gee leads students toward their personal and professional musical goals at his unassuming studio. Sharing his hard-earned performance techniques, such as how to use small magnets to connect with an audience, Gee instills charisma and confidence in his students, prompting Wanchic to proclaim, "I don't think you could find a better person to be mentored through than Jon."
