Justin has had a guitar in his hand since he was 5 and has been teaching guitar since he was 14. He has performed and recorded extensively with several bands and has worked with songwriters in Nashville and Atlanta. Justin is a graduate of the Carleton University Music program. Using this experience, he helps students develop their goals and guides them towards success.
Justin has an easy going attitude and a practical, straightforward teaching approach. He teaches rock, folk, pop, and blues primarily but has had students that play classical, jazz, and metal. Several of his students have moved on to study guitar at universities across the country.
Justin coaches the Alcorn Music Studios Jam Bands, and has been coaching the bands at Be in the Band, Blues in the Schools, and Rock U programs since 2007.
