Instructor Biography

Monte King, Certified Professional Guitar Player/Teacher

I've been playing and teaching acoustic guitar for 40 years. My major influences have been pop/folk guitarists like James Taylor, Jim Croce, Dan Fogelberg, Paul Simon, and David Wilcox as well as a variety of country pickers like Chet Atkins, Merle Travis, and Thom Bresh. A 1985 graduate of the Guitar Institute of Technology, I have always loved the pure sound of a songwriter and a guitar, and love inspiring others to learn to play for themselves!
