Hello everyone, my name is Shane Scarazzini! I am a professional guitarist; I have toured all over the United States with a variety of groups ranging from rock n' roll bands to theatrical productions and beyond!

While pursuing my music career, I also developed a passion for teaching the art of the guitar. Since 2011, I have taught students ranging from toddlers handling a guitar for the first time all the way to grown adults preparing to play in a live band!

I am looking forward to helping you enrich or begin your guitar journey! Welcome aboard!

Shane's guitar lessons opened everything up for me: quickly, he got me comfortable soloing anywhere on the fretboard. And music theory? He'll give you as much or as little as you want, always keeping it practical and immediately applicable to your playing. Taking lessons with Shane is a pleasure too. He's a gentleman and has a big heart and generous spirit!

A common road block for talented, experienced performers is that they struggle with breaking down the basic fundamentals of their art form because they are so far past the basics, but this is not the case for Shane. He is receptive and clear in his explanations and he supports both successes AND mistakes as each are so valuable to learning any instrument. A very experienced guitarist and a flexible, helpful, inspiring teacher.

Shane is an all around great guy and it's a pleasure to learn with him and to know him. He is very receptive, thoughtful, kind, and patient, always willing to take the time to help out people that he knows. He has a heart of gold, and every single time that I have played music with him it has been a wonderful, rewarding experience and I always learn a lot even if it's not necessarily a guitar lesson, even when I jam with him I feel like I walk away a better guitarist and musician because he exuberates talent, class, and most of all: positivity. Take lessons with this man, you will not be disappointed.
