Our Founder

The Sunset Learning Studio was founded by South Bay musician, Dan Jenks. 

After attending the University of Evansville as a trombone Performance Major, Dan toured the US for many years on the east coast as a multi-instumentalist (guitar, sax, flute, keys, and singer-songwriter).  As a freelance music arranger in New York City, he became hooked on studio recording.  Eighteen years ago, Dan moved to California and opened his private recording studio in RedondoFounders of Sunset Learning Studio. Beach.  As a music producer, Dan has recorded, arranged and produced over 70 albums.

More recently, he opened the local and online music store called My Gear Guy (www.mygearguy.com) in the same business complex as his recording studio.  My Gear Guy continues to be a great source for music gear and technical advice for local musicians.

As a member of our music community, Dan saw a need for a special kind of music instruction in the South Bay.  Together with his wife, Nicola McGillicuddy, the Sunset Learning Studio has been created to offer music students an EXCEPTIONAL learning experience - right here, in the South Bay!  

The Sunset Learning Studio offers private lessons and music classes in voice (vocals), guitar, drums, piano, bass, and music technology - including Pro Tools, Cubase, Sonar, Logic, Studio Recording, and Modern Music Production.
