Orlando native Aaron Lingelbach has been teaching and performing guitar and other guitar-like objects professionally for the better part of a decade. His lesson plans are uniquely designed and geared specifically for the tastes, wants and needs of each individual student. His philosophy is that music should be fun first and second challenging enough to inspire growth as human beings as well as musicians. In other words – through musical challenges, we can learn overcome any obstacle in our path…and have a blast doing it because there is nothing more fun than “playing” music (it is called “playing” after all).
Aaron can be seen performing regularly around the central Florida area in nearly every genre from country to jazz/funk – classical to experimental noise – even from musical theater to his break-neck, high energy ska/punk outfit, Tef London.
