Dylan Lawrence Gibson

(Composer, Musicologist, Educator and Performer)

Dylan Lawrence Gibson is a South African classical and contemporary (Metal) guitarist who has been performing and composing since 2010. Over the years he has developed an interest in expanding and enriching the repertoire repositories of various instruments (not only limiting himself to classical guitar).

Apart from composing and performing, he has an interest in writing about music (as a Musicologist and music theorist). Additionally, Dylan is a certified Performing Arts Educator registered with the South African Council of Educators (SACE). Dylan offers tuition and lectures in music theory (Grade 1-8), aural training, music history (musicology), guitar (Grade 1-8+) and percussion (Grade 1-5).

Dylan primarily composes works of different difficulty levels - including:

  • Student centered pieces intended for educational purposes, 
  • 'Serious' concert works, 
  • Atmospheric film and video game music,
  • Abstract and experimental works (which explore instrumental extended techniques, graphic notation and electronic mediums).
