Guitar Teacher - Deanna P
Guitar TeacherNorth Hollywood, CA

I am a self-taught guitarist that has had a life long obsession with music. From a very young age I was surrounded by talented musicians including both grandfathers, my mother and father, as well as being influenced by old recordings of my late uncle. My father introduced me to the drums early on but it wasn't until I picked up a guitar that I became hooked. Six months after playing, upon taking a Nashville tour, I told my mother that I would be attending Belmont University as a Commercial Guitar major. At this point I could barely make my way across the neck of the guitar. I spent the next four years relentlessly pursuing my passion for music and in 2007 was admitted as the only female in the guitar program. I dove head first into the music scene of Music City and began attending weekly jams at a local Nashville dive bar with Rudy Wooten of the Wooten Brothers. In early 2008, I was sponsored by RS Custom Guitars and began performing with the legendary Red Special at NAMM conventions.During that time I also played with the Nashville based rock outfit, Blackwater James. We released two albums and opened for acts such as Bret Michaels, Queensryche, Stryper, and Saving Abel. Upon graduating, I toured the southeast with platinum selling Country artist, Chase Rice. Playing on bills with seasoned artists such as Joe Nichols, Phil Vassar, Brantley Gilbert, and Love & Theft.My live and studio experience has given me a broad musical vocabulary in which I can apply in a variety of musical settings and genres. Throughout my musical career, I have earned endorsements from RS Custom Guitars, D'Addario, Pedaltrain, and Planet Waves. I have also shared the stage with Vince Gill, Brent Mason, Dan Huff, Billy Ward, Billy Thomas, and many more. I am currently writing/recording/touring with LA based rock group, Mount Holly. We just signed with Razor & Tie Records and have completed recording our debut album. "Deanna has pushed the musical limits of guitar, vocals, and performance, and captured the attention of the music scene with her spectacular talent and rare showmanship. Deanna truly is the female Slash." - In the words of the iconic Tom Zutaut (former Geffen A&R executive who was responsible for signing GN'R to the label),
