Sulene Van Der Walt, seen with the yellow stratocaster on the right is now touring the world as the guitarist for Nate Reuss of the band Fun. She's played on all of the late night tv shows and even performed at The White House. After studying with me while in high school, she later attended Berklee College of Music in Boston. In addition to touring, she writes her own music and scores for film and television. Follow Sulene by clicking HERE.

Will Lange, the guitarist on the right in this video, started lessons when he was 6 years old. Now at age 17, he is deeply involved with The Paul Green Rock Academy in Saugerties, where he has performed in numerous shows. He has even been living out my teenage dream of sharing the stage with Scott Ian of Anthrax on numerous occasions. He plays locally with his Metal band, Porcelain Helmet, seen here with Scott Ian.

Gillian Kroll, on the left here, harmonizing with her twin sister and drummer, Emma Kroll is a multi-talented musician, playing mandolin, bass, banjo, and guitar. She sings beautifully and can play a wide range of styles. Gillian was just accepted to Berklee College of Music in Boston, so we’re excited to see where her musical studies will take her.
