Mr. Jared Tuitel grew up and currently lives in Grand Rapids, Michigan. For as long as he can remember, he has had a guitar in his hands. He began taking piano lessons at age five and switched to guitar lessons at age nine.  He continued studies with the guitar and by high school was proficient on the guitar, playing in local bands. In his junior and senior high school years he studied vocal music in choir and was a member of their advanced choir his senior year.

After high school he studied guitar and music at Berklee College of Music in Boston, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music Performance, Songwriting and Production. While at Berklee, he joined a band named Merithius and played guitar on their first album, while touring the Northern East Coast and at different venues in Boston. He saw this as an excellent growth opportunity to hone guitar techniques, and improve his songwriting and production skills. 

After graduating from Berklee, Jared moved back to Grand Rapids to pursue a career as a music educator so he could share his passion for music with his community. Since 2018 he has taught guitar, piano and drums privately.

Jared is also in the process of releasing his first solo album, which he produced in his home studio during the lockdown under his own record label, "aMotherSon Records."

During his free time, Jared loves working on creative projects that involve music, art and performance. He enjoys outdoor activities such as camping and hiking with his girlfriend, Elle. He likes the challenge of playing cards and board games with friends, cooking, movies and meditation.

Mr. Jared is accepting new students for: guitar, drums, voice, piano, ukulele and mandolin.
