Every student has a unique story. A unique reason that brought them to the guitar. A unique spark that inspires them to play. In the heart of Idaho Falls, we discover such a unique story. Meet Brian Crouch, a retired professor, avid outdoorsman, and an inspiring Study With Adam Guitar Legend.
I got a chance to talk with Brian about his music, and we had a great time making this video
Brian started playing the guitar at the tender age of eight and his passion for the instrument has not waned since. He found his way to Study with Adam (SWA) on August 30th, 2018. His journey with SWA has been nothing short of transformative. Having one-on-one access to a guitar coach, Adam Rafferty, has given him an unparalleled boost in honing his skills and technique.
But it’s not just about technique for Brian. His love for Study With Adam stems from the intellectual and spiritual connections that Adam fosters. He speaks highly of their enriching conversations about music and life that transcend the usual pedagogy, elevating the learning process to a cosmic level.
Embarking on a new chapter in his musical journey, Brian is now preparing to play private gigs in his local area, focusing on home concerts. The guitars accompanying him on this journey are a Seagull Signature Peppino D’Agostino acoustic, a Tele, and a Yamaha Pacifica.
Musically, Brian’s preferences are eclectic. He loves classic rock and blues, fingerstyle, and dips his toes into classical music as well. His favorite guitarists range from Adam Rafferty and Peppino D’Agostino to Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Stephanie Jones, and Ana Vidovic, reflecting his varied musical influences.
Away from the guitar, Brian leads a fulfilling life. He’s a retired professor, married to Cheryl, a retired ballet dancer. The couple enjoys spending time with their two sons, five grandchildren, two grand cats, and two grand guinea pigs. Their love for nature takes them hiking and fly fishing in the picturesque settings of Yellowstone Park and the Rocky Mountains.
Brian Crouch’s story is a testament to the magic of lifelong learning. He embodies the essence of a Study With Adam Guitar Legend, which is a mix of unyielding passion, dedication, and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. As he strums his way into his next adventure, his story serves as a reminder of the power of music to enrich and inspire at every stage of life.
