Look who Alaska Airlines recently asked to be a part of their ‘Ugly Sweater Day Celebration’! Al was honored to be selected by Alaska Airlines and said everyone was amazing to work with, even though it was a very early start time of 3 AM. He even got to keep the ‘Ugly Sweater’!

He’s been called a guitarists guitarist.  He has toured internationally, shared the stage with countless acts including a multi Grammy winner and spent hundreds of hours in the recording studio, writing and creating guitar tracks for his own projects as well as other artists.

After playing for a friends corporate event recently, he was asked by several people if he'd be interested in playing for others, as well.  It was in that moment that he realized that this would be an amazing opportunity to play more acoustic music, and entertain more people as well.  Since then, Al has played Corporate Events, Weddings, Birthdays, Upscale Restaurants, Luxury Home Open Houses, Bars and Private Parties.

Listening to Al play acoustic guitar is like experiencing a detonation of sound, intensity and style.  Never shy about his talent and presence, he always ensures that he is providing exactly what the client is looking for.  Only someone with years and years of professional experience can give you exactly what you're looking for.  Al does this every time he provides his musical expertise for any event, wedding or performance.

Al Nesbitt was a wonderful addition to our recent wedding ceremony. His guitar skills are excellent and I can’t say enough about him.
Many guests both during and after the wedding paid compliments to his music.
Al is a true professional, not only in talent, but in customer service.
I would without a doubt recommend Al Nesbitt to anyone and everyone!
He is simply amazing!
Sincerely,

Al is AMAZING! I hired him to work a cocktail event at a country club and he was a perfect addition to the ambiance. He is so talented - many of the guests were asking him if he had any business cards so the y could hire him for future events. SO happy I found him. I’m definitely going to hire him again. Thank you Al.

I am so thrilled that we were able to hire Al for our event! He was very professional from start to finish of the process. I overheard several guests at our event complimenting his performance. I’m pleased that I found GigMasters and plan to use this site again. We also hope to hire Al for future events.

Why do i need a teacher when there are other methods?

It’s a great question. There all kinds of methods, apps and channels available to all of us, which I think is fantastic. I really do. I use them all myself. I’ve always figured that if I can learn one thing from a book or video that makes me a better player, that’s a win. However despite having played for over 30 years and being around some of the best musicians in the world, I still learn the most when I take lessons from a real teacher. Now, I still use books, apps and YouTube to learn new things however, what I realized is that no one is really holding me accountable. Additionally, one views all of these methods through our own limited lens. One of the most beneficial parts of working with a teacher is the interaction and seeing things through someone else’s lens of experience as well as having someone mentor you along your musical journey.

I began teaching after I’d only been playing for two years because I realized that in order to teach something, I really had to understand it and execute on that knowledge. It was a effective way to hold myself accountable to my own demanding standards and be able to work with students that really wanted to learn.

I will be accepting new students beginning in March and I will only be taking a handful of students because of my schedule, but will be keeping names of file for future openings. I am looking forward to teaching again, from young kids to retiree’s - from people just starting to those who are already proficient.

*I teach absolute beginners to advanced students*

Please send me an email through the fillable section in the ‘News and Updates’ and I’ll get back with you regarding pricing and learn more about what your goals are (I’ve taught people who just want to learn a few chords or songs to people that want to learn really advanced techniques). I also teach electric and acoustic. Look forward to hearing from you
