Dave Mesrobian, aka, Mezzy Shredder, teaches the instrument at his studio, Landing's Garden State Guitar Academy, while working toward his own musical success. Mesrobian is in the process of putting together a new band for himself and says he only needs a lead singer.
He was 5 years old when be began to play and is largely self-taught. Mesrobian told the Record he realized early on that school was not the place for him, and that the guitar was his passion and would be his future. He was correct: Throughout his adult years, the now-40-year-old played in a host of bands, including TrendKill, Blind Soul Junkie, Rezination and Warhorse, and spent eight years going door-to-door to peddle guitar lessons. In 2010, he opened Garden State Guitar Academy, at 118 Landing Road, and has been teaching there ever since, the article said.
