Jon Foreman | The Academy Sessions | Taylor Guitars
 
The Switchfoot guitarist and songwriter talks about starting to play guitar, writing songs, the central role of music in life, and the Taylor Academy Series.
September 4, 2018

Before he played with major-label acts like Switchfoot, Jon Foreman was just a kid, soaking up music and melody from an artistic family. Now that he’s a pro, he looks back on his first guitar and reminisces on his learning experience and how honesty and imagination play into songwriting and music-making. With the Academy Series, Jon found an instrument that hearkened back to his early playing days, one with a comfortable, inviting feel that would have made learning guitar even more exciting and accessible at the time. With a solid top, a carved armrest, and that inimitable¬†Taylor Guitars feel, the Academy Series opens the door to musicians of all backgrounds and styles to find inspiration in music.
