About Jeff Rankin
Born in Baltimore, Maryland, Jeff discovered guitar at an early age. He
was a student at the prestigious Peabody Conservatory, where he also
studied privately with Larry Hoffman, a Grammy nominated guitarist.
Gigs in local rock bands followed, then he joined the first of several
touring bands. He has played all around the country, as well as in
Mexico and the Caribbean, and on cruise ships. His experience in bands
playing many different styles of music has helped him to forge his own

Juice", and "Florida Film and Tape".
He currently teaches and performs locally in the Orlando area with the
rock band "Radio Nemesis", and is also part of an acoustic duo, "The

him to help his students naturally develop their skills on their
instrument and maintain their enthusiasm and love for music.
