GML Bruce Gregori Music

General and specific guitar and music instruction in technique and songs. Songwriting skill development as well as improvisation, soling, chord work, and infusion. My approach to guitar is breaking down the steps necessary to learn, play, and master songs in a bullet proof, stage or recording studio way, even if you just play on the coach ( I do that as well)! - BG

Bruce is really flexible with any style. He made sure that I got the most out of the experienced. He is really results oriented and focuses on what you want to learn and accomplish. Definitely recommend!

Bruce is a masterful guitarist. He knows how to play with a lot of taste; understands theory and knows how to easily pass on the information. He is a real nice, down to earth. modest guy. I really look forward to my lessons with Bruce.

I think I am going to learn a lot from Bruce. I told him what I am interested in doing with the guitar, and he sent me a direction I like. First lesson and I am looking forward to putting in the work and learning from Bruce what I can. I have faith in him.

Excellent guitar instruction. This guy's been playing a long time! Laid back style, easy going, and humor too.
