Have you ever wanted to shred on the guitar or lay it down on the drums? Has life gotten in the way? Are you looking for someone to help you make music a lifestyle instead of a forgotten dream? Rob Spampinato is on an epic quest to bring music into your life whether you used to play or you’ve never picked up an instrument before. It’s time for you to embrace your destiny, note by note, in This Book Shreds.
Even though Rob came from a musical family, his first guitar teacher didn’t really help him connect with music in a way that sparked the passion hidden beneath his aching fingertips. He still remembers how bummed his dad was when he quit, but his dad waited patiently. Enter heavy-metal friends, discipline through martial arts, and his first band was born.
Now, over twenty years and thousands of professional gigs later, Rob has become the music teacher his five-year-old self always needed—using a holistic method of customized music education he developed and used to create his own music school. He’s managed to build an entire career around his true passion, music, and he wants to help you do the same.
Are you ready to learn what it takes to shred? Do you want to make music more than just a dream or a hobby? In This Book Shreds Rob will teach you how to:
⚠ Use the power of music to create lifelong connections with people who are awesome.
⚠ Write mind-bending songs based on universal emotions and simple research.
