An expert in all things rock, Michelangelo brings over 15 years of teaching experience to the Brooklyn Guitar School. A childhood learning the music of rock greats such as Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and Guns N’ Roses brought him to Berklee College of Music, where he received his BM in Guitar Performance. He loves teaching all styles and levels, specializing in classic rock, pop, heavy metal, and lead guitar. When he’s not working with students, Michelangelo can be seen shredding with NYC based rock heavyweights Thrilldriver. He considers himself extremely lucky to be able to share his love of guitar with his students on a daily basis.
