“The greatest fulfillment for me as an instructor is watching the success of my students. Having the ability to provide them with the tools to make that success possible is the most rewarding. And as long as they are having fun, while also learning and implementing proper techniques on the guitar, then they are definitely on a pathway to success.”


Brian Shuff began teaching guitar in 2002, where his essential aspiration to help students succeed as guitarists began.

Prior to becoming a guitar instructor, Brian played for numerous bands, was featured on several recordings and studied advanced guitar techniques from his mentor and Berkley graduate John Pramus.

Brian also studied advanced music theory and music composition under Dr. Cratty at Mira Costa College. His passion and devotion for the instrument enabled him to develop proven methods for assisting other guitarists in becoming the musicians they want to be.

In 2007, Brian toured Europe with his band at the time, Deathevokation. His keen knowledge about guitar, theory, composition, and making the instrument fun, has made him an instructor who helps actualize the goals of his students.
