I was impressed with my daughter's first lesson! Justin was very personable with her and helped her get over her nervousness. He was also very knowledgeable and evaluated her range and which way would be best to teach her. My daughter loved it, and is looking forward to learning more!

I have been playing guitar for over 20 years and teaching for about eight. I studied classical and jazz guitar at the University of Central Florida, but I've been playing blues and rock guitar for almost 15 years now.

I am happy to teach the basics of blues guitar to the beginner or intermediate player - chord progressions and harmonic theory that underscores blues music, pentatonic and other appropriate scales and modes, rhythm and syncopation, and perhaps most importantly - how to improvise on the guitar.

About Gio
I studied music at UCF (Orlando), focusing on classical and jazz guitar, but I also have years of experience playing rock, blues, folk, hip-hop, and musical theater on both guitar and drums.

I have been teaching guitar, drums, and piano for about eight years to students of all ages. Music is what I'm passionate about and it's what I enjoy. I want to inspire that same passion into the hearts and minds of others.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a laid-back teacher, fun, and I focus on the needs, abilities, and ambitions of the student. In turn, students must realize that learning an instrument takes a lot of work and dedication. One can't expect to learn very much if s/he only practices or thinks about the instrument during the lesson. If the student is willing to put some time into practicing, then I will help them go far!

*** Studi
o Equipment ***
I have several guitars, a drum kit, djembe, mandolin, clarinet and full-size keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
Guitar: Classical, jazz, American or Irish folk, rock and pop; lead or rhythm.
Drums & Percussion: All genres
Piano: Classical (includes sight reading)

Vic is a great teacher....doesn't hold back! You'll know how the lessons are going. Vic actually taught me basic banjo technique as well and I played drums in a band he mentored for a few years. It turned out to be a terrific experience and he taught me an awful lot about dynamics on drums in spite of that NOT being his instrument. He's a great teacher! And ARTIST. If you have the chance to take lessons from Vic, do it!!

I've been playing guitar for 12 years now & have been teaching for 6 of those years. I began playing classic rock/punk/metal/hardcore & ventured into various sub-genres catered to these styles throughout my teen years when I started writing my own songs & playing in various bands in the Tri State (NJ/NY/PA) areas.

I was completely self taught up until I decided to pursue my studies further beyond High School @ Berklee College of Music (2012-2016) where I focused on broadening my musical palette and immersed myself w/ Contemporary/Fusion/Jazz/Latin/Progressive Rock and many other various styles. Over those years, I studied w/ John Baboian, Jon Finn, Dave Fiuzcynski, Dave Gilmore, Mick Goodrick, Don Lappin, Tim Miller, Norm Zocher.

I currently play w/ TOOTHGRINDER (Spinefarm Records/UMG) I'm honored to have toured with artists like: After The Burial | Between The Buried And Me | Bullet For My Valentine | CHON | Code Orange | The Contortionist | The Faceless | Killswitch Engage | ...

Guitar should be fun for everyone who picks it up. That's the most important thing to know. It's also important to understand what you are capable of, and maximizing your ability within that skill level before attempting to move on to the next. We naturally feel better when we do something right than we do when we try something beyond our level, but fail to make it sound good! I've been playing this instrument since I was 12, and I still light up with excitement when I discover something new or figure out a difficult pattern for the first time.
We can cover a unique and wide variety of styles, from Celtic fingerstyle to Progressive Metal, Christian rock, and everything in between. I can tell you now that the first thing I will try to do is get you to relax with the instrument and enjoy our time together, exploring the wide array of sounds and music this beautiful instrument can create!

About Mark
Hello! My name is Mark Sewell and I have been playing guitar for 23 years. I was trained at the age of 5 on the piano and that's where my musical journey began, now 30 years ago! I have played in several cover groups, worked with an original progressive rock group, was a member of the University of Louisville School of Music and Marching Band, and have been a team member with the Music Worship teams at multiple churches. I have taught private lessons on the guitar, piano and tuba. This is my first attempt at teaching online! The guitar is a fun and diverse instrument. There are so many options for what you can make the instrument sound like, and there are also many options with how you wish to play the instrument. I embrace this diversity of the instrument, and seek to make the lessons both fun and informative. My first goal is
to make the lessons fun, and allow you the freedom to enjoy learning the instrument! I've taught just about every style and skill level, so whatever you want to learn I hope I'll be able to help you out! Thanks for stopping by!
