Aaron "Bert" Owens
You may recognize Bert as one of the familiar faces you see around the shop. Aside from being the former “Guitar Custodian & Doer of Things” at the shop, he has been teaching at the store for over two years! Bert took private lessons and went through the Rock School (now Backstage Pass) performance program at Mom's Music as a teenager, but is primarily a self-educated guitar and bass player with nearly two decades of experience. He specializes in bass, guitar, band coaching, and ukulele, and can teach anything from the most basic beginning chords and techniques, to more advanced playing styles such as sweep picking and slap bass. Bert was a member of the local metal band Prices On Our Heads for over five years, and has been working in the local groove indie rock trio Darlington Pairs for several years with one of our other instructors, Skyler Bready. Bert has a passion for music and creating new musicians and loves to have fun while doing it!
