Eugene Shapiro

I am an award-winning Jazz guitar teacher and musician.
Teaching Philosophy

I create a personal lesson plan for every student depending on their experience, goals they would like to achieve and musical preference.


I've been teaching guitar at the Community College of Southern Nevada since 2000. I have over 25 years of private teaching experience. I have performed with Sandy Duncan, Little Anthony and the Imperials, Art Van Damme, Walt Weiskopf, Marlena Shaw, Ed Soph, and many others. I played many festivals, such as Spirit of Music Festival (San Francisco, CA), Fremont Street Jazz Festival (Las Vegas, NV), and Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival (Moscow, ID).


I hold Master's Degree in Jazz Studies from UNLV. I am a published author of the "Beginning Guitar" book (Kendall Hunt Publishing). I have recorded two CD's with my Jazz group the Shapiro Project. I was awarded two Fellowships in Jazz Composition from NAC and an Honorable Mention from Billboard Songwriting Contest, as well as numerous ASCAPlus Awards.
