Welcome to AxGrinder.com

Hello everyone and welcome to my website, dedicated to all things guitar. I wanted to create website that would be unique from the ones you may be used to. So I set out to create a site for guitarists and other musicians to explore.  I want to soul search, all of us together. I want your playing and overall musicianship to find the next level while finding your own unique voice on your instrument. With that said, I created a space where I will be offering blogs on various subjects, product reviews, instructional videos, inspirational stories and even quotes from myself and other fellow musicians all with same goal in mind: to give guitarists a place where the ground is fertile for the creation of what our souls yearn for, to further our own musical journey.

I hope you like it and I humbly thank you for this opportunity.

Enjoy! Oh, and one more thing, when your done exploring, get off the internet, pick up your guitar and play!!!!

Is everybody in? Then lets begin…

About Richard Rossicone

Richard W. Rossicone is a veteran of the New York City and Long Island original and cover band scene. He has been playing guitar since the tender age of 8 years old when he attended his first concert, KISS and saw Pete Townshend smash a guitar. He has studied with various instructors over the years which led him to a career in Music Therapy. He began his educational journey at Queensboro Community College where the faculty there opened up a new world to him by introducing him to classical music. He received his A.A. in Fine Arts in 1997 and from there went on to receive his B.A. in Music Therapy in 2001 and his M.A. in Music Therapy from New York University in 2004. He has been Board Certified as a Music Therapist since 2002. Hungry to learn more about different styles on the guitar, Richard decided to continue his studies at C.W. Post University pursuing a second Masters Degree in Classical Guitar Performance and Music History in early 2006, studying under Harris Becker. In addition to his “day job” as a music therapist, he has been teaching guitar, piano and theory part time since 2002 and in 2006 started his own company called Rossicone Music Studios. Richard has grown his business from 15 students a week to over 50 a week at this present time. Richard is also a contributing blogger to GuitarWorld.com and GuitarAficionado.com Check out his blog page entitled The Complete Guitarist and visit him on Facebook at Richy Rossicone’s Complete Guitarist Page.

  3. Hey Maki….thank you so much for checking out the blog at guitar world.com and my website…I appreciate the positive feedback…Music Therapy is the use of music and the elements of music to help a client achieve a certain therapeutic goal. It is being used successfully with patients of all ailments such as autism, the learning and the physically disabled and in my case, the geriatric population and those afflicted with Alzheimers Disease and dementia…it is a great “job” if you really want to call it that lol…thanks for the inquiry and welcome to the axgrinder.com family…
