Adam Levy hosts the popular YouTube series Guitar Tips as well as the Guitar Tips Pro series on Patreon. He has written dozens of instructional articles for Guitar Player and Acoustic Guitar and has taught at NYU, the New School, and USC. He’s been featured on recordings by Norah Jones, Tracy Chapman, Meshell Ndegeocello, and Vulfpeck, and has released many of his own recordings as well. In this extended workshop, he’ll play a few original songs, talk about how he found (and continue to discover) his own musical voice — including his influences, challenges, and breakthroughs. Finally, through Q&A and jams with students, he will help you along the path to finding your own voice on the instrument. This event is supported in part by JAM Pedals with additional support from Jazz Central Studios.
