Jason Ashcraft Guitar Teacher
Jason Ashcraft began playing guitar at the age of 12 when he lugged home a giant amplifier and an off-brand guitar from a neighbor's house. He began by making loud noises and rocking out to Metallica albums like "...And Justice For All." With a combination of lessons and being self-taught he quickly grew as a performer and songwriter through high school. He attended Pinnacle College, where he graduated with a certificate in Audio Engineering. He is now the founder/songwriter of the national touring metal band Helion Prime out of Germany.
Jason has a passion for teaching. He has been teaching music as well as children with autism for over eight years. He believes music is something to be shared with everyone and being able to help others evolve into the performer/songwriter they wish to become is a great feeling not much can compare to.
