Swimming in a sea of disconnected information?

Swimming in a sea of disconnected information?

Stuck at an intermediate plateau in your playing? Fed up with 'paid YouTube" courses? And next thing you know you're doubting yourself. "Am I just not talented enough? Are these guitar influences just out for my money? Am I just not meant for this?"

Or maybe you're that guy staring up at the ceiling every night saying to yourself, "damn, I got the diploma, job, and girl, now I've got kids running around, all these obligations and on top of that, these new virtuosos are lapping me in ability, how am I ever going to catch up".

The answer to your breakthrough is one call away with ShredFest VIP.

Why ShredFest VIP?

AJ's story-- When AJ started teaching back in 2010 at a local music store in Happy Valley, Pennsylvania it was merely to pay the bills. Keep the lights on, if you will. However, he found out pretty quickly that he had a knack for it. Within weeks, no lie, his calendar started filing up and being also a sale associate, he learned very quickly that he had a passion for music education and leading people toward the tools and resources that truly made positive change in he student's development.

IT was through trial and error and making core connection in the community that AL was later asked to help put together clinics for the Penn State Guitar Club in that area. This was the catalyst of his passion for helping others in the guitar community. He later wnet on to pursue a career in guitar, attended Berklee College of Music and forged his skills to become the one of the world's top guitar artists of our time.

The ShredFest community understands the void that is now lost in a sea of disconnected information that often confuses the learner. Our community was created to bring that shining moment back. Pursuing a music career isn't cheap and is riddled with those that seek to take advantage of dreamers like yourself, leaving you packing your bags sooner than later. AJ's program gives guitarists like you a real shot at pursuing their dreams and even making the money they need while they do it.

This is how the ShredFest Academy was born.
