Jarin has been involved with music since he was a young boy. Growing up in small town Saskatchewan, it was a struggle to get lessons, but once hes was able a passion was ignited. After high school he went off to Grant MacEwan College and completed a 2 year course in Jazz Performance through the bass program. After living overseas for 1.5 years, he returned to Canadian soil, and enrolled in University of Saskatchewan to study Agriculture( Yes, you read that right ). While in Saskatoon, he was a member of many bands, and also held 2nd chair in the Saskatoon Philharmonic Orchestra. After completion of University he moved to Calgary to pursue music full time.
After writing and recording his debut solo CD, he toured and played in support. He also maintained a teaching schedule of 50 students per week for a number of years. While teaching, he was given the opportunity to receive training through Fender Music, to maintain one of his teaching studios store stock.
