Hey Guys !!! Your Comments or Reviews are Welcome!!!
Sensei to the Stars:
You don’t have to be an amateur guitarist to need guitar lessons. Even the pros like a
good schoolin’ now and again. And if you’re a professional guitarist, singer, or actor in
the Los Angeles area who’s fishing around for a guitar teacher, it probably won’t be long
before someone refers you to Jean-Marc Belkadi. Like his mentor, the late, great guitar
genius Ted Greene, Belkadi is quickly emerging as one of the most in-demand and
respected guitar instructors in Southern California and beyond. Over the years, the
former GIT staffer’s roster of students has included Dweezil Zappa, Ricardo Montalban,
Rafael Moreira (Rock Star house band), Joe Holmes (Ozzy Osbourne, David Lee Roth),
Joel Whitley (Stevie Wonder, Lauryn Hill), Justin Derrico (Pink), singer/actress/John
Denver ex-wife Cassandra Delaney, Matchbox Twenty drummer Paul Doucette, Sean
Matthew Landon (Michael Landon’s son), Austin Ward (Sela Ward’s son), and even
Martin Chirac (grandson of the former President of France, Jacques Chirac).

"All in the Family" By Darrin Fox "I also took lessons from players such as Jean-Marc Belkadi and T.J. Helmerich. It was like
Guitar University here!And I worked with Brett Garsed, who showed me how to incorporate the fingers of my picking hand to
get to some of the wide intervals in Frank’s music that I couldn’t get to with a pick. I use that technique to play “Black Page #2.” I
also took some lessons from the late Ted Greene to round out my knowledge of chords and harmony.
