Napa, CA (PRWEB) May 24, 2012
ArtistWorks, the first collaborative global learning community comprised of master artists and ambitious amateurs, announces the launch of the online, interactive Rock Guitar School with Paul Gilbert.
Most noted as a member of the acclaimed heavy metal band Racer X, platinum-selling hard rock band Mr. Big and a recent member of the G3 guitar super tour, “guitar deity” Paul Gilbert’s distinctive playing has influenced and inspired an entire generation of guitar players across the globe. Gilbert’s new Rock Guitar School will feature a complete course of guitar lessons ranging from beginner to advanced – covering everything from classic riffs and guitar licks to Paul’s signature blazing arpeggios and string skipping.
The Rock Guitar School with Paul Gilbert utilizes ArtistWorks’ patent-pending, Video Exchange Learning™ Platform to create a direct, personalized educational experience. Subscribing students view Gilbert’s lessons and submit their video questions/performances directly to Gilbert via webcam or smart phone for critique and guidance. Gilbert then reviews and responds to each student with a personalized video response. This Video Exchange technology allows students to learn directly from Gilbert - and from each other – creating a “virtual classroom” with an ever-expanding curriculum.
ArtistWorks students study in a guided, self-paced environment that allows them to drive the learning process according to their schedule and at their own pace. Multiple camera angles allow students to see lessons from alternate viewpoints so they can analyze techniques from different vantage points. In addition, students can loop sections of the lessons to practice along with, and break down lessons even further using Slow Motion Isolation.
World-renowned guitarist Paul Gilbert, is one of Guitar World‘s “50 Fastest Guitarists of All Time and one of Guitar One Magazine‘s “Top 10 Fastest Shredders of All Time.”
“I know there are people out there who are hungry to learn the guitar, or just want to improve, or get back to playing,” says Gilbert. “But there are so many things that can keep you from it – lack of time, money or even access to great teachers – my Rock Guitar School really eliminates all of those barriers and lets me have a real conversation with people who are passionate about playing guitar.”
“We are honored to welcome Paul Gilbert to ArtistWorks’ growing roster of top teaching artists,” said David Butler, CEO of ArtistWorks, Inc. “Paul’s reputation as a powerhouse rock performer coupled with his extensive experience as a leading guitar educator makes him the perfect partner to establish our Rock Guitar School.”
