An electric guitar player who toured with Michael Jackson during the 1980s and 1990s is to hold a music workshop in Nottingham.

Jennifer Batten went on three tours with the King of Pop, who she describes as a "creative tornado", playing to around four and a half million people along the way.

She is now holding a seminar in the east Midlands city today (February 20th 2010) which will include tips on techniques for a new generation of guitar players.

Batten told the Nottingham Evening Post that she took up the instrument after seeing her sister playing it.

"I told my parents that was what I wanted for my next birthday and my dad got me an electric guitar and some lessons," she explained. "I really took to it."

She beat more than 100 people for a role in Jackson's backing band in 1988, making her debut on the Bad world tour.

Michael Jackson's hits from down the years including Beat It, Thriller and Billie Jean.
