Justin Murray Guitar

Justin Murray has been teaching private guitar lessons and group guitar classes for all ages and skill levels for 10+ years in the greater Kansas City area.

He began playing guitar over twenty years ago, and has been playing professionally for 15+ years. His formative years with the guitar were primarily centered around learning “by ear” with his dad’s extensive blues rock collection. He later learned to read music and tablature to participate in school jazz band, and formed his first band at the age of 17 and began playing professionally around Kansas at the age of 19.

Most of Justin’s musical influences are centered around blues, rock, pop, and R&B. Specifically with guitar playing, he finds that less is always more. He believes that “there is something more to be felt with the vibrato or bend of the note vs. 1000 notes.”

“Playing guitar and studying music are reflexes that have to be introduced, developed, and refined over time to become the best musician you can be.” Justin says. “Discovering your inner musician and maintaining a consistent music doctrine over time leads you to a place of ultimate artistic expression and musical abilities.”
