My name is Zach Serleth, i am a senor in high school and a huge fan of jazz. Dave Janesh is who got me into this wonderfull form of music and teaches most of the Jazz Theories, chord progressions, notes, and importance of reading music to me. I also study my main instrument, the bass, under the great teachings of Paul Bagwell who has really advanced my bass playing very fast. I study my secondary instrument, guitar, under my old basketball coach Chris Kates. My main infulences are Paul Bagwell and Dave Janesh, they are the people that got me into playing bass. But, as for people who everyone knows i would say my main infulences are Victor Wooten, Marcus Miller, Tal Wilkenfeild, Les Claypool, Justin Chanceller, Flea, and Stanely Clarke. I plan on playing these instruments for the rest of my life and cant wait for my first gig!

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.
I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.
My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."
