Alex Layne, a graduate of the illustrious Peabody Institute, edifies aspiring shredders of all ages with guitar-playing prowess he purloined from members of punk group Reptile House and other musicians such as Felicia Carter and Antony West. During two 30- or 45-minute lessons, students can perfect their plucking on an electric, acoustic, or inflatable axe as Alex summons more than 20 years of teaching know-how to impart basic, intermediate, or advanced skills.
