Taro Morino

Guitar Teacher NYC

Born in Philadelphia and raised in Hamburg, Germany, Taro Morino discovered his affection for music during his high school years. There, music consisted of setting up drums and amps to rock out! First with the drums, and later with guitar, Morino’s interest soon grew into a passion that lead to his involvement with local bands playing Hip Hop and Latin Rock.

Upon moving back to the U.S. in his early twenties, Morino enrolled at the Aaron Copland School of Music where he joined the guitar ensemble. During this time, Morino focused on studying classical and contemporary art music, diving into a world he formerly knew little of. Today, Morino is a guitar teacher at Sage Music, who helps his students in Brooklyn, Queens and all over NYC to become better musicians in many different styles of guitar.
