Guitar Faculty at Attacca

Sergej Root

Acoustic, Electric Guitar, and Ukelele Faculty

Sergej Root is a double platinum award winning music producer from Germany. His teaching style goes beyond music scales and technique. 

 

His journey began at 12 years, when he picked up the guitar and directly fell in love with it. Playing for almost 10 years in a band helped him understand and finetune his craft in a holistic way. After graduating at the ArtEZ Hogeschool voor de Kunsten (Netherlands) with a Bachelor's of music, he worked with the famous German music producer Peter "Jem" Seifert and produced well-known artists and bands for several years.

 

He loves to teach his knowledge to the upcoming musicians no matter what age they are.
