Denis Vasenin is, without a doubt, one of the finest and most talented musicians of the area. Being a highly-trained professional guitarist, he possess a vast repertoire of different styles of music: from classical and jazz music to pop songs and spanish flamenco.
Background: Denis Vasenin started playing guitar at 7 years old. In 2009 he joined the guitar ensemble "Picado". As a part of this ensemble he traveled around the Europe and performed in Italy, Germany, Hungary and France. He also participated in many musical competitions. In 2015 he graduated from Stetson University School of Music, with the BM Guitar Performance degree. Denis studied under supervisory of Dr. Stephen Robinson, a virtuoso guitarist, student of Andres Segovia himself. Denis also took masterclasses from such guitarists as Dr. Benjamin Verdery, Amadeus Guitar Duo and Jorge Caballero.
Since I was a little kid I always enjoyed listening to music. In this world, where everything is so rushed, music is one of the few things that can make us relax and enjoy the moment. There is nothing more rewarding for me, as a teacher, then excitement on a student's face when he or she plays the very first chord on the instrument. I always try to interact with the students and explain concepts in a fun and simple way; that makes my lessons fun and allows students to excel and get better quickly.
We could not have been more pleased with Denis' teaching skills and warm personality. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for a guitar teacher!
I took lessons from Denis for a little bit over a year and absolutely loved it! Before that I tried to learn to play the guitar couple of times on my own but it just never worked out. The first week of taking lessons I could already play my first song! I highly recommend him to anybody who wants to learn how to play music.
I like to talk to a new student about what style of music he or she likes the most, what are his/her favorite songs, preferences, etc. Then I create a plan that allows us to move in the right direction and that's how we get started!

I started teaching at DeLand Community School my freshman year at Stetson University, about 5 years ago.
Over the last 5 years I had a variety of students, from Elementary School age to adults.
Besides teaching I also play at shows and recitals at different venues. The last one I enjoyed the most was the Grand Opening of a new Mariott Oceanfront in Daytona Beach, FL
