Like most guitarists, I had always wanted to play the guitar as a little kid. Luckily, my parents finally caved to the request (ok ok, incessant begging) and I began my guitar journey at the age of 11.

This was my first lesson ever on a stringed instrument but I was very impressed with Justin, my instrument ended up having an issue and he still came up with stuff for us to work on despite the mandolin having a malfunction. He also helped me figure out what needs to be adjusted for my mandolin to play correctly. I am looking forward to my next lesson.

The lessons will be customized to fit your learning style, your speed, and your taste. Since this is true, we will be learning the songs you have always wanted to play. We will be breaking down the songs components. We will be analyzing the theory behind it and on the way you will learn how to read music.
I have helped transform people into musicians for about 7 years. I was a professional musician for a number of years, so I will past on the tricks of the trade.

Music awakens the inner soul, whether you just listen or learn to make your own music. Research shows music can enhance your concentration, build your confidence, decrease anxiety and increase your ability to analyze situations.

"Lucian will listen to whatever it is that you want to learn and give you all the building blocks to play how you want to play and explore your options on the neck in many different ways. I am a intermediate guitar player and within a few lessons with Lucian I was given tools to work on and practice for months to improve my skills and technique/ approach to playing.
