ArtistWorks Online Rock Guitar Teacher Paul Gilbert Reaches 6,000 Video Exchange Milestone

Rewards Six Students With Free Ibanez PGM miKro Guitar

Mr. Big guitarist and ArtistWorks Rock Guitar Teacher Paul Gilbert has reached 6,000 Video Exchanges in the ArtistWorks Rock Guitar School. An innovative and patented approach to online education, the Video Exchange Learning® method allows students and teachers more personalized virtual interactions than ever before. Through this system, members at ArtistWorks can submit practice videos through the website for their instructor to review and provide feedback.

Over the last 6 years, Paul Gilbert has used Video Exchanges to help thousands of players reach their personal music goals. Paul responds to each practice submission with specific guidance that directs the student towards better playing. Whether he helps a beginner student learn to hold the guitar, or offers expert suggestions to an advanced player on improvisation, Paul responds to students from all over the world (often while on tour himself.)

Paul has come to know the ArtistWorks Rock Guitar students by name, saying:

“Do you know Leonel, Alex, Sophia, Garrett, Drew, or Radek? I do. They are all students in the online Rock Guitar School at ArtistWorks. I know their names (and the names of many others) because I personally respond videos of them playing guitar and asking questions”.

Paul Gilbert boasts a storied guitar playing career.  Before he began teaching on ArtistWorks in May of 2012, he was a founding member of the Grammy nominated group, Mr. Big. He’s toured the world, reached #1 on the charts, and recorded platinum selling albums. In addition to his work with Mr. Big, Paul has performed with other celebrated groups, including Racer X and Black Sheep.

These days, Paul is best known for his positive attitude and eye catching guitar shredding (sometimes accompanied by a drill). Paul’s students describe his teaching as approachable, entertaining, and deeply effective. Says one of his recent students:

Learning directly from Paul Gilbert is incredible. He's a great teacher and has a way of explaining things that are easy to understand and replicate. The feedback is what really makes this website head and shoulders above the others. When I record myself and send it in, I get a response from Paul that critiques in an incredibly constructive way, as well as additional exercises to work at really honing that skill. In addition, getting to see what tips he gave to other users is awesome! If you want to learn an instrument, there's no better way.”

Reaching 6,000 Video Exchanges® on ArtistWorks represents a tremendous achievement for Paul Gilbert, signifying a culmination of 6 years of dedicated instruction.  To celebrate, Paul is awarding 6 ArtistWorks Rock Guitar students with Ibanez PGM miKro guitars signed by Paul himself. Rock!
