I prepare each lesson with thorough notes and exercises so that students never feel overwhelmed or confused about the given content. Students will develop their technique and understanding of music each lesson.
I enjoy seeing my students develop into confident and developed guitarists, performers and songwriters in a style and voice they have cultivated themselves based on their own interests.

Students' lessons are shaped based on their musical goals and interests. We meet weekly, and I provided sufficient but not overwhelming amount of material to help students progress each week and become closer to meeting their goals. Technique, ear-training, improvisation, chord studies are among some of the topics covered regardless of level. Learning songs that the students want to learn is also another area we will focus on.
Sulynn Hago is a Brooklyn-based guitarist, composer, and improviser whose playing spans from the heavy, fast energy of metal and punk bands to the dynamic subtleties of jazz, classical, ambient and experimental guitar. Hago's performance experience encompasses both intimate and mass settings from DIY tours around the country to international shows and festivals. An eclectic and adaptable guitarist, Hago seeks the challenge of playing, improvising and/or writing guitar in as many styles and musical atmospheres as possible, preferably on a classical guitar or an electric guitar rigged through a chain of effect pedals.
Along with writing and touring in punk bands from an early point of her guitar playing, Hago pursued a consistent study of the guitar through learning by ear off of recordings, reading guitar books, and taking private lessons. She ultimately garnered an interest in classical and jazz guitar studies, working privately with various local guitar teachers — mainly Thomas Coffey, LaRue Nickelson, and Peter Mongaya — to develop her technique, music theory studies, and personalized voice on the instrument and integrate it into her bands. In addition to her non-stop performing experience and guitar studies, Hago also attributes her aesthetic to the creative writing degree in poetry and creative non-fiction that she earned at the University of South Florida.
In 2015 Hago was picked among 400 applicants as touring guitarist for Canadian punk/metal band Propagandhi. For this accomplishment, in 2016 Hago received the "Best Embedded Local" award from Creative Loafing. In 2018, Career was awarded “Best Album Release Show” for their single 30-minute song release of Structures which Razorcake magazine responded with positive reviews: “This band from Tampa is clearly brimming with folks who know about music, not just its history but its structure. It’s interesting to listen to; it’s surprising. It’s dissonant and surprising and when the vocals do appear, they are exactly what you’ve come to expect from Florida—gruff, urgent, and strained. You f**king listen to this record; it doesn’t play in the background.”
When not writing, practicing or performing, Hago teaches individual lessons in various styles of Acoustic, Electric, and Classical guitar as well as advanced technique and theory from her home. A guitar instructor since 2009, Hago's goal is to share her knowledge of the instrument and performance preparation to anyone who wishes to play and write music on the guitar.

I began teaching in 2009 at Bigel Music. I left in 2013 to open and teach from my home studio and have been doing that since.
I teach all ages and from very beginner to advanced levels, most in the style of rock to shred guitar.
You want a teacher who accomadates to your methods of learning and strives to make you into the guitarist you want to become. You want lessons that are individualized to your playing level and musical goals.
