Jimi Hendrix era and never looked back. Anderson's blistering riffs and incomparable singing style are a familiar delight to The Classix growing fan base.

Lowell Marin - Band Leader, Music Director, Bass, Guitar, Mandolin and Ukelele

I’m Lowell Marin, and I am a musician by study and trade. But truly I’m a musician by heart. I’ve been playing guitar since I was 17 years old, and it gives me great joy to have this expressive reason to be. I’ve played in bands from New York to California, composed original songs and rocked the standards. Four strings or six strings or twelve, the guitar has been a constant companion and close confidant.
Along with my steady gig as guitarist, bass player, writer and band leader in New York’s
CLASSIX BAND, I like to give back by passing my knowledge on to youngsters. This is
something I’ve been doing for well over a dozen years. As my client list has grown along with
my reputation, I now have many private students. I am currently Rock Band Teacher at the
Dalton school, and I performed the same service at Bank Street School of Music from 1998 - 2010. This means I’m in charge of the 9 -14 year old aspiring musicians. I teach them how to play and understand music theory in a rock and roll idiom. My program received wide attention and was the subject of a report on the WB11 News with on-air personality Toni Senecal. The story ended with Toni quoting my mantra - - “you’re never too young to rock and roll.” With my
guidance many students have formed groups of their own and tried their hand at composition.
Some of the more experienced and facile students have performed “guest spots”during my gigs at the Hudson Beach Café. I have also taught at DAY JAMS - - a rock and roll day camp. I also
run “LOWELL’S WORLD”, a quad-annual student performance. A second generation performer, I also have puppetry skills that I used on Nickelodeon,
the World’s Fair in New Orleans, Busch Gardens Williamsburg and Disney World Florida. I love what I do, and take great pride in watching my changes overcome shyness, achieve
satisfaction, and reach down deep to tap that core of the universal language: MUSIC.
