Stringer Strings/ 813 Studio
I have been playing guitar for 30 years and a professional musician and studio session player for 20 years. I won the Louis Armstrong jazz award for excellence. I was playing advanced jazz band by the time I was 15. I’ve Played with or opened up for names such as Albert Collins Double Trouble,kid rock, Vanilla ice fabulous , Thunderbirds, I’ve headlined the original antones. Played just about every live club in Austin. For the past 10 years I’ve been working on trying to build a studio and I want to run my own studio and build amplifiers and build Guitar’s and and repair guitars so as you can see my life revolves around music and guitars. I have just built a studio in Jonestown Texas where I’ll be doing my lessons. I’m currently ranked number #4 as singer songwriter In Austin Texas. This is for reverb nation so obviously it’s not including all the singer songwriters in Austin but still not a bad position to be in.I take a different approach to teaching which has served me well and helpedmy students. I expect a lot but I also give a lot so I hope we can all work together and we can get you on the level that you want to be.
I live and breathe guitar and I love to teach and guitar just makes my soul feel whole and at peace and it helps me focus and it brings joy to people.
