About this pro

I live, breathe, eat, and sleep the guitar. Bit by the bug in 1995 and have not put it down since. Started teaching at a young age and really enjoyed helping people have an easier time having fun on the guitar. Whether your goal is to learn the basics, or get ready for a scholarship audition I would be happy to help! - Experienced music teacher (16 years teaching) with focus on electric guitar   - Winner of Steve Vai’s “Best In Shred” Finals for SamAsh Music Stores (Georgia/Florida, October 2013) - Appeared in Mike Varney’s Spotlight Column in Guitar Player Magazine (August 2005) - Founder of the subgenre Shredgaze - 2009 Graduate of the Berklee College of Music with a degree in Professional Music

I love sharing what I have learned with others who are also passionate about music. I enjoy seeing students progress, and extract more joy out of their time spent with their guitar.

    I have been taking lessons from Justin for 3+ years. I am an intermediate level player. He is terrific at articulating detailed nuances in guitar lessons in ways that make it understandable, enjoyable progressive. He is not locked into one "mode" or style of teaching. He listens to your interests. A gifted musician, producer & teacher. Worth much more than he asks!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Every 1st lesson I offer comes with an extra 15 minute consultation to determine students interests, taste in genres, and goals. I then work with them to layout a clear plan that moves them closer to their goals.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

- I have a degree in Professional Music from Berklee College of Music (class of 2009)

- I have worked as a studio musician, playing on 100+ albums. This experience refined my ability to help with songwriting, production, and engineering basics.

- 2013 winner of Steve Vai’s “Best In Shred” at Samash
