By jerome . March 9th, 2009
Can you confirm you had a classical music education ?
The Great Kat is a
Juilliard Graduate Violin Virtuoso, who was a Full Scholarship Student
at the prestigious Juilliard School in New York City. I was the
Concertmaster of the Juilliard Pre-College Orchestra, winner of the
“Robert Hufstader Scholarship” in Theory at Juilliard, winner of the
exclusive “Artists International Competition” and violin soloist at
Carnegie Recital Hall.
After graduating from Juilliard and realizing that Classical Music was
DEAD, I decided to listen to all forms of popular music to find the
style that closest matched Classical, so I could update this genius
music. I FOUND METAL and THE GREAT KAT’S SHRED/CLASSICAL MUSIC WAS
The Great Kat is NOW the “Top 10 Fastest Shredders Of All Time” (Guitar
One Magazine), “50 Fastest Guitarists Of All Time” (Guitar World
Magazine), “The 100 Wildest Guitar Heroes” (Classic Rock Magazine) and

Where does this shred passion comes from ?
THE GREAT KAT”S GUITAR SHRED PASSION comes from WAKING THE MASSES UP
WITH POWERFUL CLASSICAL MUSIC MIXED WITH SHRED METAL

TAKING ON THIS MALE-DOMINATED GUITAR WORLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!
