I started my musical education in a children's choir at age 6. When I turned 8 years old, I began piano lessons. I started violin at 9 and trombone at 10. I am now proficient on the guitar, bass, and piano. Having completed my tour of duty in the U.S. Army, I am currently on the Dean's list as a music/audio production major, and plan to continue my music education until I earn at least a masters in performance and composition.

I grew up in Glenside moved to Pittsburgh for school and came back because I love it here...I've been playing for 17 years and have a smorgasbord of influences from Zeppelin to the Beatles to Phish to Radiohead to the dirty projectors to Jay Z to Kurt Rosenwinkel & John Scofield.

Born in raised on the south side of Chicago Illinois, I grew up listening to A LOT of great Chicago blues guitarists. After receiving my first acoustic guitar I quickly gravitated towards learning to play blues and blues rock guitar at the age of 13. As my hunger for knowledge grew, I began learning and studying other genres of music through private lessons and lesson videos in the styles of Progressive Rock, Shred, Funk, Fusion and Jazz. Music was a way for me to find structure, discipline, self worth and personal expression outside of the typical confines life provides. Through that I grew as a person and a musician. My sole reason for teaching is to help others find that passion and those qualities within themselves to live a beautiful and fulfilling life through his/her instrument.
Guitar has been my most important instrument since I was 8 years old. After playing hours daily and performing from age 13 my interest in teaching grew. I began to create my first set of novice curriculum's when I was 14 years old, after winning my first guitar competition. My curriculum today, examines all aspects from enjoyed genres of the particular student. This ensures a more positive attitude towards practicing and fun in general as opposed to feeling like guitar just isn't your thing. And in a more advanced setting, we'll break away from interests alone to improve and inherit skills from foundation genres such as jazz and blues. Heavy metal, Bluegrass, Folk, Country, Indie and pop techniques can also be studied by request. We'll read music, play chords, jam, learn scales, build a band possibly and keep solid practicing schedules. Given that the student practices at least 15 minutes daily, I can stand by a promise that you WILL progress.
My Name is Mason and I've been teaching music to students of all ages since I was 14. I originally taught at a facility near Reading, PA called Zeswitz. While I worked there I studied along side other seasoned professionals in genres like jazz, heavy metal and folk styles. Currently I run a small business. My experience, since I was 8 years old, was built on private lessons from select very accomplished and certified guitarists. I also played in several profitable bands including jazz duos, classic rock trios and currently a blues duo with my lovely wife. I'm also always building and helping local bands. I'm very pro learning and never satisfied with my playing enough to say I don't have to practice any longer. I share to same attitude towards my students. There are always new grounds to ...
