Gibson was founded in 1894 and has been synonymous with creating, shaping, delivering, inspiring, and owning the ‘share of sound.’ In 1906, Gibson realized the benefits and power of music and music education. Instead of using traditional sales-reps to sell instruments, Gibson engaged with teacher agents to get guitars in the hands of students of all ages. Gibson realized early on that getting instruments into the hands of those with a desire to make music is a truly life-changing event.
