METAL MIKE CHLASCIAK - FOUNDER

First - The Official Brag Bio

My focused, no frills metal guitar playing took me from 350,000 people at Rock In Rio to Ozzfest to Giants Stadium to three times at New York City's Madison Square Garden. I am a recording and touring artist, writer, blogger and an expert heavy metal guitar coach. I have recorded and toured the world several times over with Heavy Metal's elite and have appeared on albums totaling well over a million sold. I am a long standing guitarist to Judas Priest's Rob Halford.

I have taught hundreds of thousands of people internationally via my popular 'Metal For Life' Guitar World Magazine column, DVDs, books, music camps and workshops. I have also recorded with Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden, Axl Rose of Guns N' Roses, Sebastian Bach and performed with Testament, Rudolf Schenker of Scorpions, Geoff Tate of Queensryche and Saturday Night Live's Jim Breuer. I tour internationally as a solo artist, with other metal gods, and have played in over 20+ countries while sharing tours with bands such as Motley Crue, Iron Maiden, Guns N' Roses and Ozzy Osbourne.

And, Now - Why I  Do This

I founded Metal Heroes Academy in order to Educate, Motivate and Inspire the current generation of up-coming young metal-heads as well as experienced players.

As a young player, I found that many behind the scenes doors in the music business were tightly closed. Not many professional musicians seemed to truly explain endorsements, offer proven tips or seem interested in developing careers of other young players. The idea of I Found A Way, So Why Should I Help You seemed to be the rule.

I certainly spent many days outside the clubs with my demo tapes hoping to pass it along to someone in a real band. What was I expecting? I'm not sure. Maybe a nod that I was doing something right, maybe to hear of someone looking for a guitarist. I was not sure what I was doing, but I wanted to do something. I can count on my right hand fingers how many ever replied. It doesn't matter today, because I have learned a lot.

But, through developing my talent, persistence and refusal to fail I broke through the walls. And, the bands whose bus windows I used to peek into as a teenager eventually were warming up tours for my band few years later. It was a trial by fire way of learning how to navigate through nooks and cranies of the sometimes dark music world. I still learn today and will continue to do so.

And, I want to help others achieve their very own dreams through the experiences that I have leaned from. I refuse to accept that musicians "should" be financially broke and carry a beaten dog attitude. As a matter of fact, I feel that metal lovers are some of the smartest people that I have ever met. 

I also know that parents are often looking for answers in regards to their young metal-head wanting "to do something" with their music. I might not always have the answers, but I definitely enjoy talking and sharing ideas and any advice that I might have.

I'm committed to providing world class programs through Metal Heroes and offer them at a fair price. I truly enjoy teaching in a easy to understand manner.

I am a proof that anyone can succeed if they are willing to believe in themselves and have the right support. Metal For Life.
