Will I Receive Guitar Lessons Specifically Designed For Me?

Short answer: yes.

(Long answer) Here is how: 

You will fill out the evaluation form to tell me about yourself as a guitar player. 

I ask you a ton of questions about your musical skills, knowledge, strengths, weaknesses, frustrations, background and guitar playing goals.

Here is what happens after you are done (and you select one of the lesson plans on the next page): 

I will go through your evaluation from in detail (I usually read it at least twice). Then I will create a lesson strategy to get your playing from where it is today to where you want it to be.

It’s all based on everything you told me about yourself in your evaluation form.

(Note: It may take me 2-3 hours to create your lesson strategy. So, please be patient. I don't want to rush this step, because it’s going to play a huge role in you becoming a better guitar player quickly.)

Next: I create your actual lesson materials.

What are your lesson materials? 

These are the exercises, drills, concepts and techniques and that break down your goals into bite-sized steps that improve your playing. 

As you follow these steps – you become a better guitar player. Same way you follow the navigation system in your car. 

Just follow the directions, make all the right turns and you will get where you want to go. It’s almost literally that simple.


As you practice – you won’t be alone. 

Here is how I help you in between your lessons: 

  1. I train you live on video every week in live training classes. There I take the hardest guitar playing topics and break them down to make them easy to master. Plus, I get to see you play and answer your questions live on video.
  2. We also do live guitar practice sessions for you, me and my other students. We all practice guitar together and work on things each of us may struggle to practice individually.

    This helps you to get stuff done and improve more quickly.
  3. I'm here for you when you need me. Here is what this means:

    If you have questions – email me anytime - day or night. I answer your questions in detail and you always get a reply from me directly.

    Plus, you can talk to me every week live on video in Office Hours (where I answer your questions live on video).
  4. You can send me recordings of your playing for feedback. In my feedback, I help you diagnose and remove bad habits from your playing and erase all obstacles slowing down your progress.
  5. You can join our exclusive community on my students’ forum. There you can get support from my top guitar students – many of whom are now professional guitar teachers themselves. 

I’ve coached them on how to teach guitar in the Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle.

All you have to do is practice what I tell you to do at least 30 minutes per day 5 times per week.

If you can practice more – that’s great. But if you practice the lessons I give you just 30 minutes per day, it becomes almost impossible for you not to improve.
