• Jennifer Batten on Jeff Beck. Batten was in Beck’s band, and has comprehensive, first-hand knowledge of Beck’s material and approach to performance.
• Jude Gold on Eddie Van Halen. The Jefferson Starship guitarist performed as Eddie in the popular Van Halen tribute band, Hot For Teacher.

About Guitar Cloud Symposium:
Guitar Cloud Symposium (GCS) is an all-new virtual guitar mastery program, and the brainchild of Jennifer Batten (Michael Jackson/Jeff Beck guitarist). GCS was born from her desire to empower the modern musician with lessons learned from her decade-long world tours with Michael Jackson and playing alongside guitar icon Jeff Beck.
One of the early graduates of Musicians Institute (MI), Batten was also an instructor, and became known for her musical versatility, creativity, and innovation, as well as her excellence in guitar education. Jennifer Batten’s Guitar Cloud Symposium instructors are personally vetted by Batten and meet her rigorous criteria. The Guitar Cloud Symposium brings students of all levels a mix of techniques, styles, wisdom, insights, and fun!
The roster of instructors includes Jennifer Batten, Angela Petrilli, Vicki Genfan, Gretchen Menn, Nili Brosh, and Daniele Gottardo, and is quickly growing to include other world-class guitarists. Instructors offer a wealth of knowledge from their onstage experience, in the recording studio, and from their years of teaching musical subjects they are passionate about. Their desire is to connect with players around the globe and help students unlock their creative potential. Learn more: guitarcloudsymposium.com.
