AVENGED SEVENFOLD Guitarist Explains Opening Online Music School


According to The Pulse Of Radio, AVENGED SEVENFOLD guitarist Synyster Gates told Metal Hammer magazine in a new interview why he decided to launch an online guitar school with his father, noted musician and acclaimed session guitarist Brian Haner Sr. Gates explained: “I wanted to set something up that I felt could help kids like me from a young age… I felt like I could do a pretty good job of curating a curriculum, and with the help of my father, who is an amazing musician, and has been playing in and out of studios for 40-plus years, I felt like we could really give people that extra benefit of our experience.”

Gates said that the curriculum took about two years to develop and goes from “very, very beginner — how to pick up a guitar — all the way to advanced theory that gives you a good solid foundation for jazz and other different applications.”

Gates said that the project is more of a “community” than a school, saying, “People can search you out, and find like-minded people to help instruct, or form bands together… there’s so much to learn from everybody.”

AVENGED SEVENFOLD recently released a deluxe edition of its latest album, “The Stage”, and will begin a North American headlining tour on January 12 in Nashville with special guests BREAKING BENJAMIN and BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE.
