Guitar and Bass
Justin Medlen has over 21 years of experience in guitar playing. He began
taking formal guitar lessons at the age of 11. His musical education
continued through high school while participating in jazz band, marching
band, and studying music theory. Justin began honing his performance skills
playing shows with his high school jazz band. After high school Justin
continued to develop his skills with other local musicians and was given a
unique opportunity to tour as a guitar technician with an up and coming
Tampa heavy metal band.
Justin attended the Atlanta Institute of Music from 2006 to 2008 with an
emphasis in jazz, rock, and music theory studies. During his time at AIM
Justin began offering private lessons and upon graduation started working as
a guitar instructor at local music stores in the Atlanta area. While in
Atlanta he co-developed various musical projects ranging from rock and metal
to progressive and jazz fusion. Having now relocated back to the Tampa Bay
area with his wife and children, Justin continues to offer guitar lessons
with the hopes of inspiring new players by providing a solid music theory
based foundation. Justin’s teaching experiences range from private guitar
instruction to group guitar lessons.
