Beth Marlis

Beth has carved out an important path in the jazz guitar world. In an industry dominated by male players and professors, Beth’s Beth Marlis Benedetto Player Artist Photohas brought her to the pinnacle of the west coast jazz guitar universe. With an undergraduate degree from UC and a Master of Music USC, she has risen from instructor to department head to now Vice President of Education for Musicians Institute. Still a gigging guitarist, composer, studio player, published writer and arranger, she is an integral bridge to new generations of jazz guitarists.

Like many of today’s great guitarist/educators, Beth’s command of music crosses many genres from jazz to rock to classical to latin to funk and R & B. Her credits include sharing the stage with artists from every style and sound.
