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 ...

First of all, I love ALL music. Here is a list of some of the things I am proficient in and can teach you: Genres (blues, rock, country, classical, metal, pop, punk) Technique (strumming, lead playing, fingerpicking, speed-picking, sweep picking) Theory (note-reading, scales/improvisation, chord construction, timing/rhythm) Composition (putting it all together- songwriting!) And this is all only the beginning. I come to each lesson with a plan, based off how I feel the student learns and what their goals are.

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
