While serving with the U.S. Marine Corp., as a scout-sniper in Iraq, Jason Sagebiel sustained a brain injury that would haunt and debilitate him. As he tried to rebuild his life upon his return home from the war, Sagebiel turned to music to heal. When he could not get access to proper healthcare, he began rehabilitating himself through disciplined guitar practice. With utmost determination, Sagebiel retaught himself guitar, and in the process, regained his cognitive and musical abilities. Sagebiel is a critically acclaimed artist and MTNA Nationally Certified guitar teacher with a Masters in Music Composition from Queens College. He has been featured on WNYC, NY1 and more. In 2012 he founded the highly rated SAGE, school of music in Queens.
