Get to know Max Needleman

I'm a Sound Design graduate who has been playing guitar since I was 12 years old (15 years). I even received my first guitar lessons at Music and Arts in Timonium! 

I've always been inspired to further my skills on guitar through the awesome teachers at Music and Arts. 

I play and teach all types of music such as Classic Rock, Blues, Alternative, and Metal. 

When I got accepted into the film program at my college, I quickly became fascinated with the audio side of making movies.

My interests led me to pursue Audio Engineering.  I gained the necessary skills to record myself playing the guitar through post production courses. I also decided to take Music Theory and Composition classes to further my understanding of how music works.  After I graduated, I wanted to learn more about my computer application (Pro Tools) so I took the required courses and tests to become Pro Tools 12 certified.

Now coming full circle I teach what I've learned through my schooling and love for music.
