George Inai

Guitar & Band Instructor

In his life of playing guitar and playing music, George has made noise with his band in Hollywood on the Sunset Strip back in the heyday of heavy metal, chased the blues through the streets of Oakland and, most recently, traveled to London to perform his music. He has been teaching in the Bay Area since moving here from Colorado in 2015. He loves to help his students learn to pluck a string, learn Stairway to Heaven or Highway to Hell, learn to play a Bb minor 7 b5 chord, a Bollywood classic, or anything in between.

One of George’s special talents here at the Garage Band Academy, is to teach the Band 101 course, which helps to introduce the concept of playing music with others, and to help prepare these students to advance to our quarterly courses for the more advanced players.
