Wassim E.Book Now
My name is Wassim, and I have been a guitarist for over 10 years, and an avid lover of music for as long as I can hear and remember. My area of focus and interest is customizing a modern learning approach that fits your goals, pace, and aspirations. Learning guitar techniques and music theory isn’t all you can expect to gain from my time, you will also be able to learn about all the other captivating aspects of music on this quest; such as music notation, arranging, transcribing, ear training, tracking and producing (if they happen to align with your goals). We all have music in us, and together you’ll be able to not only tap into the music you want to make, but you'll also create and share it with the world.
With an ever-growing amount of instructional guitar content available at our fingertips, it can be easy to get overwhelmed on your musical journey and often find it challenging to know where to begin, or if you’re even on the most impactful path for you.
My pledge is to work ...
Everyone has the ability to reach their musical goals, with the right amount of correct guidance, planning, patience, practice, time and consistency. Take it from someone who has made this their life mission, who has seen the joy that the feeling and sound of progress brings to people, and who will

I have had the pleasure of studying trumpet at James Madison University with Jim Kluesner, who was a student of perhaps the greatest trumpet teacher of all time, Vincent Chicowitz. As a student of Jim, my process and pedagogy is based on the teaching of Chicowitz. Most of my experience as a player is in the classical realm, performing with Orchestra and Wind Ensemble. I also have experience playing lead trumpet in a big band and can give good insight and direction if that is the style of playing you are interested in. I am a licensed teacher for k-12 Instrumental Music. I have directed both middle school and high school band programs. I am currently a Doctoral student in Instrumental Conducting at The Hartt School of Music at the University of Hartford.
