Jeremy Knuth is a musician and teacher from Vancouver, Washington. He started private lessons at the age of six and trained with pianists, Azemar Glenn and Vila Moreland for 12 years.
Jeremy began teaching and working with youth programs in 2002 after graduating from Hudson’s Bay High School. He spent three years teaching swimming, taekwondo, gymnastics, and managed an afterschool care program, while picking up private piano students on the side. He then spent a year traveling abroad while working as a deck hand on a private yacht. Feeling the lack of music and teaching, Jeremy returned to Vancouver where he spent a year at the Gardner school working one-on-one with developmentally challenged children and within the 3rd-8th grade class rooms as a teaching assistant.
After the Gardener school, Jeremy began education at Clark College pursing music and teaching. He also rented a room from a small music store where he taught piano and sold/repaired instruments. In 2010, Jeremy started working with Riverside Performing Arts.
Besides teaching, Jeremy has always pursued his own art and has worked with several local projects, but can currently be heard around Vancouver and Portland playing with Sell the Farm and Outline of the Sun.
