Dickman Guitar Studio

Dickman Guitar Studio

I began teaching guitar while being a student of the guitar, working on my bachelor’s degree in guitar performance 15 years ago.  Since then I've not only developed my teaching abilities, but have developed a deep love for teaching guitar and watching students grow in their playing. I've taught hundreds of students of all ages, levels and styles of guitar.  In 2011, I earned my masters degree in guitar performance.  Throughout my studies I have had the priviledge of learning from terrific teachers, who not only taught me how to play, but also how to teach guitar.  My degrees are in classical guitar, but I play and te ...

I've taught hundreds of students over the last couple decades (and then some) and I've learned how to work with so many types of people. Some people like to move quick, some people slow. Some people are more visual, some learn better by listening. So my service stands out by my ability to hone my lessons towards each individual. I treat each student as an individual that I truly care about and want to see succeed. Beyond that, below is also a list of just some of the things I can teach you wheter it be bass, guitar or ukulele: Genres: blues, rock, country, classical, metal, pop, punk, indie, funk, r&b Techniques: strumming, lead (includi ...

I have a long-standing belief that being a musician means (literally) finding your voice, and expressing the beauty inside you. ... Cheesy, but the truth! In my life as a teacher, this means trusting the intuitiveness and natural artistry of my students while providing the know-how that I've absorbed through two decades of hard work and focused practice. Each and every student is unique, and I enjoy the process of discovering the styles, preferences, motivations, flaws, and obsessions of each one. If you choose me as a teacher, I hope you'll find that I'm committed to doing the work of creating a curricular plan that matches with what you or ... View Profile

Adam Gibson Guitar Lessons

Adam Gibson Guitar Lessons

My teaching approach: My teaching approach is to base all of my lessons on each student's individual musical tastes and goals. So if a student is interested in building speed we'll work on alternate picking exercises or right hand patterns for classical and fingerstyle students. If they're more interested in rhythm guitar we'll work on that. And throughout we'll focus on music of the students choosing. I have a bachelor's degree in music and my primary instrument in college was classical guitar. I primarily play with a pick, however, and can teach in various styles. My influences are: Paul Gilbert, John McLaughlin, John Coltrane, Al De Meol ... View Profile
