Devin Smith began teaching at Rock School in 2018. His first foray into music was as one of many small children whose parents believe a musical education is good for the budding brain; this led to a long-term study of piano, culminating in 10 consecutive years as a member of the National Piano Guild. Upon learning there were louder instruments, Devin took up the drums. After several years learning the best drummer jokes the rock world has to offer, he discovered that the electric guitar garnered much more respect, and consequently began absorbing as much as he could about the instrument. He proceeded to study jazz guitar and audio technology at Webster University and has enjoyed finding work in various musical productions and a handful of his friends’ brilliant bands, contributing both guitar and electric bass work.
