Tom Reinhart an entrepreneurial spirited man, and talented musician living in Morgan, originally moved to Morgan to be close to Snow Basin, but soon found other opportunities to spark his interest. Reinhart came across the old bank building on Commercial Street and the wheels started turning. He immediately saw the potential of the building in bringing a cultural center to Morgan, where the community could come together in learning new skills; develop talents of music, arts and crafts. This novel is an academy where musicians could come and perform, have jam sessions, record if they wanted, start up bands could practice and learn stage skills, and produce music and live video, and web development.
The concept behind this center is that mentors and students come together to teach each other skills in the arts of music, voice, songwriting, group and individual lessons on the music side of things. Reinhart is also looking for art teachers and those who teach and do crafts, that just need a place or space to teach and do crafts or art. He is hoping that through teachers and students coming together that all can share and learn new skills from one another, including offering teachers the ability to learn from other teachers skills such as keyboarding, or voice, or art etc. His goal is to develop a place where those with art talents or any talents can come together and share.
Being part of a band himself, called JT Blues band, the talented Reinhart has had much rich experience in performing and mentoring others in music and performance, including guitar lessons,voice, skills in beginning guitar (including campfire songs) blues, Jazz, spiritual, riffs scales and leads.
