Education: Bachelor's degree from the University of Maryland, College Park and a Certificate in Guitar Performance from Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California

Teaching Philosophy: My teaching philosophy is centered on helping students achieve whatever their particular goals might be when it comes to learning an instrument (learning a particular song, solo, learning how to read music, etc.). I help students learn at their own pace while making sure lessons are enjoyable and provide a good foundation of music-related knowledge so that each student is able to build on what he/she has learned with me and take his/her study of his/her instrument as far as he/she chooses.

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.
