Instructor : Justin started playing guitar when he was ten years old; after developing an interest in country-western music and the music of Jimi Hendrix. He began taking private guitar lessons from a neighbor for three years; and it was during this time his teacher noted his possession of perfect pitch. Once Justin was in high school, he became heavily involved in the school's band program; participating in the marching band, jazz band, and concert band. He was also enrolled in courses for guitar, piano, music harmony & theory, and a personally-devised independent study based on composition techniques ranging from Baroque to modern. All the while he played in multiple bands outside of school; ranking top placement (with two 1st place nominations) regularly in annual Battle of The Bands competitions. In 2011 Justin began his final stage of higher education at Berklee College of Music; majoring in Guitar Performance. While completing his studies at Berklee, he still played in bands regularly; sharing bills with national touring acts such as Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Puddle of Mudd, Jackyl, and Styper, to name a few.
Justin is fluent in a wide variety of musical styles; including rock, blues, jazz, heavy metal, pop, country and classical music!
DID YOU KNOW? - Music education and its positive effect on students -
Music is integral for children's academic development. Playing an instrument helps train children to remain focused for long periods of time. Studies have shown that studying music is linked to better academic performance as well - reading and playing music sharpens memorization and cultivates the desire to improve.
Children who play a musical instrument over the course of a few years are more likely to excel in their studies, work better in teams, have enhanced critical thinking skills, and pursue further education. Not only does the simple act of playing an instrument improve technical coordination skills, but music engages areas of the brain that are involved with paying attention and making predictions.
Although playing an instrument can be a challenge, students acquire a sense of achievement after reaching their goals and will be driven to persevere musically as well as in other aspects of life. They learn discipline and the benefits of individual effort, and playing in group ensembles teaches camaraderie, interdependence, and the importance of individual responsibility.
