Date of Birth: December 6 1983
Been playing guitar since:1992
I picked up a guitar for the first time at the age of 9, I joined my first band at the age of 13, I had my first gig at the age of 14. I've been playing guitar for at least 4 hours a day for the last 17 years. That adds up to 25000 hours. I counted :)
I played as a stage or session musician for many Romanian top artists and I had my share of success with my Jazz-Fusion project and some of the songs I composed.
For the moment I am working on my first solo album.
Playing and Influences
Trying to remain original with all the potential influences around you is one of the hardest challenges in this job. I studied just about any guitar player you can name and I learned by heart dozens of songs but I try not to copy any of them.
I like to teach! I first started to teach guitar 5 years ago and I am glad to see that many of my students have their own bands and/or follows a musical career. I learned a lot from teaching other people because it forced me to arrange and structure the information I have. GMC gave me the chance to take this to the next level. I hope I am worth it.
