Sandra started playing guitar when she was
14 years old. Her inspiration came from her father, Vince Sego when she
was a small child. Her dad also was a professional guitarist and had
worked with many famous people in his life, including Bill Haley and
The Comets, Frankie Avalon, Denise Clemente, Charlie Ventura, Bo
Didley, Paul Anka, Mac Davis and Hall Of Fame songwriter, Jimmy Webb,
so she grew up in the music business.
She started to teach herself how to play guitar originally through
Beatle books, so she could accompany her voice, because she loved to
sing, and her father also helped her as well. He used to take her to
his gigs and ask her to sing. She later took up guitar in school and
got a teacher from The Juliard School of Music whom helped her quite a
When she got out of high school, she got an agent and got a job as a
go-go dancer in nightclubs, she did not dance nude or topless. She
danced to rock bands in cages and worked along side of Miss Vicki in
the New Jersey, Philadelphia area. For ten years of her life she was an
entertainer, from the Disco era to the mid eighties. She also sang and
played guitar in night clubs, parties, etc... as well, for many years
in NJ and Philly. She has been in a few bands, and played as a duo with
her husband also.
After the go-go years, she started teaching Ballroom dance lessons at
Arthur Murray Dance Studios for quite some time. She's taught dance
lessons for Arthur Murray in Beverly Hills, CA, Rolling Hills, CA,
Orlando, FL, Clearwater, FL, and where she first began teaching
Ballroom Dancing, was in Sarasota FL in 1986 where she got most of her
training. Sandra has also written over 100 songs. She has plenty of
experience teaching. The teaching methods for dance lessons and guitar
lessons are very similar because of the rhythms in music and so forth.
She accredits her training as a dance instructor as being a very
valuable asset for teaching guitar.
Sandra has taught guitar lessons in the past, but never as a business.
Her business, "Don't Fret" Guitar Instruction has been in operation for
over ten years and she does it for the love of music. "If I can pass on
the joy of music to people that I've gotten out of it for so many
years, it's all worth it to me, and there's nothing else I'd rather do”.
