Playing the guitar has been, for as long as I can remember, the greatest
joy of my life. I have been blessed to make a living doing it for the past
25 years. Recording albums and playing shows is fantastic but probably
the greatest part has been teaching the guitar. I have been sitting down,
“one on one” with students, for two and a half decades and have developed a
multitude of strategies to help students achieve their goals. With beginners,
I work to minimize the inherent struggles, through proven techniques
and approaches, to get students playing fluently sooner then expected.
The goal is to give intermediate and advanced students learn; proper
techniques, rhythm playing, improvisation, soloing, learning and
building repertoire, song writing, music theory, finding their own
voice and so much more. I’m thrilled to be teaching these concepts
online! I’m in the process of making lesson courses, many lesson
courses, to help as many students as I can. They are on the way.

Drew, the CD is tremendous!! I cannot stop listening to it. Great songwriting, great tones, great playing, great production. Just absolutely hands down one of the best guitar albums I’ve ever heard! Lots of Steve Morse, Johnny A, Steve Lukather, and Eric Johnson influence evident, but never ever a copycat. You should be very proud with your accomplishments!! Bravo, Maestro!!!

Hi everyone, I waited patiently, and finally received my long awaited Drew Bentley CD: “Bold Horizon”. Drew has been my friend for many years. He’s also the amazing Guitar Player for DaPhunk Band.
Drew spent many years putting this CD together. I have to say, I LOVE IT!!! I listened to it twice last night!! I can’t wait to listen to it again. This is a fun disc! There’s a lot going on and it makes you want to listen to it over and over.
Drew has some of the best musicians in Pittsburgh playing on this release. Among others, he has my favorite Pittsburgh jazz drummer: Brian Edwards. The musicianship from the players on this CD is obviously way above what we all usually hear.
I’m a huge fan of guitar gods like Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson and Steve Vai. You can hear obvious influences from these guys, but Drew goes in many other directions as well. The sound textures vary from song to song. Drew’s versatile playing style blazes thru jazz, rock, blues, and much more. This CD is for those of us who like more than one kind of dressing on our musical salad. There’s something for everyone on this record!
Well done Drew!!!
