Being devoted to guitar and music for the past twenty years allow me to share my expertise and knowledge with students of all backgrounds and ages, from beginners to advanced.Though reaching the greatest standards of musicianship and performance still remain my goal, I’m glad and fully aware of my repsonsability as a teacher and the important influence I can give to my students’ careers and lives.
My style is a composite of jazz and rock influences. I don’t try to play any one particular style. I just absorb what I like and play. If you are curious and open about learning different musical genres, it all will flow with whatever way your personality wishes to express it.
Subjects include: Harmony, Improvisation, Comping, Technique, Theory, Ear Training.
We can work together to plan a lesson that will meet your goals. Lesson length is 1 hour.

“Jan Sturiale is an Italian guitarist I’ve come to know, and I believe his playing ability is extraordinary. We met through colleague Dean Brown who Jan toured in Europe. I’ve also seen Jan’s instructional website with his guitar video tutorials. He’s got great educational lessons if you’re a guitarist at any level from beginner to expert and really want to learn the instrument at a new level. On the site, Jan shows how to get the most out of music with your guitar by sharing all his secrets of great music making.
Jan’s past projects, tours, training, and guitaring techniques all make him an extraordinary talent. Creative, dedicated, personable, and with a good ear for making music, Jan has also proven himself to be an extraordinary composer and producer as well.” – Will Lee
