Dean Olivet - Site Author


Dean started figuring out how to play songs after rescuing his dad's guitar from the attic crawl above his closet. Latter he got a Music Degree from a Minnesotan University, and currently has a guitar studio in Minneapolis, where he teaches people how to figure out about music. He started as a way to share his and others' perceptions and thoughts about music. He likes writing stories, plays, musicals and many other things. He also has a guitar curricullum blog called you should check out.


He will tell you how to pronounce his real name if you ask.
