Unique method, Proven results - Over 34 years of teaching guitar 

Through GMB Music Guitar Lessons (Guitar Studio) in the West Columbia, South Carolina, area, Gary has developed a very easy-to-follow, step-by-step guitar teaching method for ages 16 and up. Regardless of your status (beginner, intermediate, advanced, or somewhere in between), Gary's guitar method is flexible enough to take you from where you are musically to where you want to be. He will teach you at a pace that you can follow and will teach you not only how to play songs, but where songs come from. You will see how what you have learned is applied to songs. You'll be amazed at how easy a lot of songs are to play on the guitar. Gary really enjoys getting a student to this point, and his guitar teaching method is designed to accomplish this as soon as possible.

If you have been playing guitar for a while but feel like you are at an impasse, Gary's method will determine what level you are at and we will begin to take the necessary steps to get you to the next level.

These are very customized, tailored, one-on-one private lessons designed to suit students' individual needs such as practice time, musical styles and interest, goals, etc. Everyone is different and Gary's guitar teaching method is designed and geared to accomplish this.

Gary does not believe in a cookie cutter, one-size-fits-all approach, which is why he doesn't teach out of guitar books. Instead, he uses his own guitar teaching method and makes all his own guitar chord charts, scale diagrams, lead sheets, and sheet music. 

Each lesson is video recorded  Talk about documentation. This is great! It's like getting the lesson over and over.

Gary's students tell him this is a big selling point. They love being able to review and practice along to each lesson's video.

Each lesson is a private, one-on-one lesson. You don't have to share your lesson time in a class with other students. Lessons are $60.00 per hour scheduled bi-weekly. Payments are due on the 1st day of each month. Gary offers easy, online lesson payments.
