At the start of his career, Wesley found himself influenced by Classic Rock legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, and Jeff Beck as well as many others.

After graduating high school, Wesley began attending the Musicians Institute in Hollywood, majoring in Jazz Studies and Guitar Performance. Since then he has been an active part of the Los Angeles music scene, performing and recording with a variety of different musical acts at an extensive number of venues on a weekly basis. As an educator, Wesley teaches all styles of music as well as any age and skill level.

Possessing a B.A. in music from William Paterson University, Neil is well-versed in many genres, but in his lessons he provides emphasis on all rock styles, blues, funk, classical, latin, jazz, and acoustic/roots music, but also teaches up through advanced music theory and ear training, mentoring extremely well-rounded students who choose to take it that far.
