About Me

It is my goal and obligation to help people like you become the guitarist that you want to be.

Here in the Elk Valley I teach others like you that have/had the same problems you do, the same questions as you, the same goals that you want to achieve, and the same mindset you have.

I know you wouldn’t be here if you were not serious about truly reaching your guitar playing goals, and you know that the best way to achieve is your goals is to find a mentor that has been through the same process that you are going through, having a lot of the same questions, thoughts, and curiosity about how to actually learn to play an electric or bass guitar.

You want a teacher that is there for you, knows the frustrations of learning to play an instrument, and can help guide you through the process of learning so that you actually have fun learning and playing music easily.

The Elk Valley is my home. More specifically, Sparwood is my home. I meet others from around the Valley that want to meet their guitar playing goals, and I also meet people from around the Valley LIKE YOU that DO meet their guitar playing goals. The key difference between these two people is their willingness to actually find a mentor that has spent a lot of hours (and money) training to become the teacher that they need to help them reach their goals, and then actually follow through on getting in touch with that mentor and training with him/her.

I love to teach people that have some experience with playing guitar or bass (6 months – 5 years) and even complete beginners. I have paid special attention in my studies of teaching guitar towards learning how to teach beginners because of my desire to help spread the gift, art, and talent of music. I love to teach kids, teenagers, and adults alike that are new to music because of the amazing joy and appreciation that comes with learning a craft such as this.

This community is our home, and I will help connect the people and places all around us with the power of music!



From a photo shoot in 2012, Adam Ragan is a great photographer.

  27. Thanks for following my blog. My son is a musician too.

  28. Dear Bryce, It is heartening to know of you. You represent that change in consciousness which enables us to own up to our authenticity – our true calling. I was particularly interested in your description about yourself. Music, as i understand is, is the language of the soul – a bit like art. It is powerful and liberating. Keep up the good work that you are doing and stay true to your Light

  29. k Atwal says:

  31. Alma Thadeau says:

    You have interesting stuff I will have to read up on! I knew someone that was very successful with affiliate marketing and I didn’t take the opportunity to learn about it. Glad I found your blog through you following mine! Thanks! :)

  32. Paul J. Stam says:

    Bryce, thank you so much for liking my post, “Mountains, Oceans and Gods” on papermudandme.wordpress.com and deciding to follow me. As you can tell from the blog site I dabble in ceramics and writing. I find it interesting that people will pay $15- for a coffee mug of mine that took maybe 2 months from start to finish but don’t want to pay $15- for a published book that could take all of 3 years from beginning to publication. Anyway, thanks for stopping by and Aloha – pjs.

  33. Alison says:

    Hi Bryce, nice to meet you. Sounds like you’ve done what you needed to do to set your life straight. Kudos. Thanks for following our blog. I hope you enjoy the stories of our adventures, both inner and outer. I wish you all the best with your online business and with your music! Cheers, Alison

    promise to stay tuned :)

    • Bryce Gorman says:

    Congratulations on being able to follow your passion of music. More people need to find a way to feed their soul that way. And thank you, Bryce, for following Tovarysh. By blogging these messages, I am following my passion. Namaste.

  43. Great to have your visit! Inspire Me, Please! All Best.

  44. Jim says:

    I noticed you follow bunches of blogs, including my own. Thanks for that. I can’t help wondering how you actually “follow” all these blogs, and still get anything else done. I mostly ignore the e-mail notices I get, and lament missing the gold nuggets hidden among all that gravel. But that’s blog-marketing for ya.

    • Bryce Gorman says:

      There are a few systems in place to help me get the work I need done, but I love coming here on WordPress and finding people from all over the world that are writing and focusing on their dreams. I’m not on enough to comment on a whole lot but anything that interests me I will follow to stay on top of what they are writing about.

  45. I really like your story–very true. I am at the point where I want to do what I love and not have to spend time working just for money. I look forward to your posts!

  46. Robert says:

    Hey Bryce thanks for the follow. Keep the positive flowing!
