How can I help you?

I'm Riley Wilson- award winning performer, guitar teacher and writer based in Frisco, TX. I'm also known as "The Gigmeister" for my 12 year column in "Vintage Guitar" magazine. I've helped over 4,000 students from Los Angeles, CA to Raleigh, NC and Dallas, TX to learn guitar and bass successfully since 1985.  

My solo act is the most awarded One Man band in the nation, a Gig Salad "Top Performer, 5 Star Talent, Best Of Gig Salad" and winner of "Best of 2012-2021, Lifetime, Rapid Responder and Rising Star" awards from Gigmasters/The Bash.  

I've written for "Electronic Musician," Gig," "Guitar World," "Guitar School" and "Real To Reel" magazines. 

I'm also the author and publisher of the groundbreaking guitar instruction method "Guitar Made Simpler- An Intelligent Approach," available on Amazon or directly from the publisher.

If you want the best in private
guitar or bass instruction, solo performance or writing, look no further.
