Music has an incredible way of promoting creativity, emotional expression and offering a lifetime of joy. Justin’s number one goal for you or your child is to develop a lifelong relationship with music and guide you through building well rounded musicianship.
Justin’s journey with music began when he started taking guitar lessons at an early age. He studied with several teachers throughout his childhood that prepared him to earn his degree in Guitar Performance and Music Business at University of Colorado Denver. In the beginning of his Sophomore year, he quickly was immersed in the professional music industry. He was already gigging with multiple bands and working as a talent buyer full time. He focused hard on his studies with world class teachers such as Bill Kopper, Sean Mcgowan & Paul Musso. Pulling from the wisdom of a wide range of teaching styles, he built balanced curriculum's that are molded to the student’s needs. He is constantly innovating to find new ways to make lessons fun while also guiding the development of a solid technical and theoretical foundation.
His specialties are in funk, blues, rock, jazz, fingerstyle and flatpicking on both electric and acoustic guitar. Alternatively, his studies and curiosity extend into an even wider range of genres and styles. He always encourages students to engage their creativity. For him, songwriting, singing and performing go hand-in-hand with his guitar expertise. He’s played sold out shows at some of the best theaters in Colorado and beyond but his favorite thing is sharing a passion for music and helping people grow their own musicality.
