John Amato

I have taught guitar (jazz specialty) for over 30 years, and have been playing professionally since 1972. I attended Berklee School of Music in '75 and achieved an A.A degree in Jazz Arranging via correspondence courses.

I was a music minor/education major in Pace University and graduated in 1974. I attained a Masters in Education from Jersey City Sate University in 1982. I continued and enhanced my guitar/music education through the 70s and 80s with private lessons from Pat Martino, Barry Galbraith, Larry Lucie (Louie Armstrong), Rob Yelin, Jimmy D'Angelis, and a host of clinics, workshops, and the National Guitar Workshop camp in Connecticut.
