About Gaetano Grippo
Get to know Gaetano Grippo
Gaetano (Guy) Grippo discovered the guitar at the age of eleven after being introduced to the music of Led Zeppelin. Beginning his study of the instrument with lessons taken at a local music school, by the time he reached high school he found himself playing in bands and constantly working to feed his ever-evolving taste in music; a taste that grew to include various rock styles, heavy metal, blues, and jazz. In his senior year of high school, an internship at the studio where he took lessons helped him discover an innate knack and passion for teaching.
In the following years, he worked to develop his teaching ability independently. Then, after graduating from the University of Maryland, College Park, he took a position as a guitar instructor at a music school in the Washington D.C. area. He relocated to Los Angeles in late 2014 where he completed a certificate program in guitar performance at Musicians Institute in Hollywood. Gaetano continues to develop his skills as a private instructor and has gotten involved in the local music scene by taking part in freelance recording and performance opportunities with singer-songwriters. As a teacher, Gaetano strives to make his lessons enjoyable and informative and works to give his students the tools they need to accomplish their particular music-related goals.
