Jeff Sanders

It is with great sadness that the Chicago Store family must report on the death of our long-time guitar teacher and good friend Jeff Sanders.

Jeff passed away in his home on April 20th.

His upbeat energy and passion for music was an inspiring force at the store. His kind and encouraging demeanor made him beloved by students and staff alike.

We are deeply grieved by this loss but know that we are all better for having had Jeff in our lives.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family.
