Guest Biography


Tobias Hurwitz lives and breathes electric guitar. He rocks packed stadiums for The Baltimore Ravens Rhythm Section every home game with thrilling guitar solos from iconic tunes like Van Halen’s “Eruption” and Hendrix’s “Purple Haze.” Hurwitz is also a Grammy-nominated “Music Educator” who has authored fifteen popular books on rock guitar, with YouTube videos that have received over a million hits.

When he’s not revving up the Ravens crowd, Hurwitz—named “best guitarist in the Mid-Atlantic” by Music Monthly’s readers poll—hits the clubs with rough-and-ready Thin Lizzy tribute band Black Rose. During the day, “Baltimore’s Best Guitar Teacher” (Baltimore City Paper) is busy raising the next generation of guitar shredders as an in-demand teacher and the co-owner of Rock Star Jam music camp.

Hurwitz was on The National Guitar Workshop faculty for many years and is currently a faculty member at the internationally renowned Crown of the Continent Guitar Workshop in Bigfork, Montana, where he’s taught with Dweezil Zappa and John Oates of Hall & Oates. Hurwitz has written instructional articles for Guitar Player and Guitar magazines and is involved with TrueFire, which produces video guitar lessons from top players.

Since graduating from L.A.’s Guitar Institute of Technology (GIT), Hurwitz has released three solo albums, including collaborations with Santana drummer Dennis Chambers, rock-guitar virtuoso Michael Angelo Batio, Swedish prog-metal “freak guitarist” Mattias Eklundh and other master musicians. Hurwitz also collaborated with Zen Guitar author Philip Toshio Sudo, co-authoring Sudo’s final book/CD, The Book of Six Strings: The Zen Way to Play Guitar.

Live, Hurwitz has performed with The Coasters, Stanley Clarke, J. Geils and many other artists. His solo instrumental compositions and technical guitar demonstrations wow audiences at the National Guitar Museum, and guitar-related festivals and events nationwide.

Life Changes Show with Filippo Voltaggio
Show Host
Filippo Voltaggio

Come and join the conversation about what's going on and what we can do together about it, with it, and for it. We have the choice, we have the power. We can do magic if we just believe!

A show about the changes going on in us, to us, around us, and because of us. Therefore, it's technically a show about "Everything," only with a how to make it better, see it better, be better.

In the show, there is talk about, and with, people who have either been through major changes, are helping others with major changes, or people who are changing the world for the better in a major way.

The show is a one-hour talk show format with a monologue by the host, a 30 minute interview with a guest of note, capped by a "Producer's Wrap" segment, in which Filippo and Co-Host Mark Laisure, and sometimes surprise guests, bring it all home for the listeners in a sometimes humorous and sometimes touching, but always entertaining conversation.
