Do I Need Prior Teaching Experience To Join The Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle?
Answer: Short answer: No.
Long answer: In fact, it’s better if you don’t have any guitar teaching experience.
Here is why:
Most guitar teachers have a lot of bad guitar teaching habits to undo.
By “bad guitar teaching habits”, I mean things like:
1. Teaching 1-1 lessons because that’s what “everyone else” does or because you tried it in the past and “it didn’t work”.
2. Having a weak (or no) lesson policy – which means you likely waste a ton of time chasing students who don’t pay on time and teaching make-up lessons vs. creating new value for your best guitar students (the ones who pay on time, stay with you for years and practice every day).
3. Not specializing in one style of music and trying to attract “everyone”. (Hint: serious guitar students seek out specialists.)
4. Negative beliefs about money, business, sales and marketing. If you have those beliefs, it’ll be very hard for you to attract great students and create the life you deserve you have.
5. Competing with other guitar teachers based on price.
… and a lot more.
If you have guitar teaching experience – I will help you identify and remove the roadblocks standing between you and the guitar teaching business you want.
But if you don’t – I’ll help you get started the right way from the beginning, so you can achieve the success you want in way less time than it takes most guitar teachers.

“When I first started teaching, I didn't know you could learn how to teach from anyone. But I did know that Tom Hess was a master teacher. I had been taking lessons from him already, and I'd been to several events before I stared teaching. I saw the proof of how Tom Hess could teach. I could tell that he knew what he was doing, and I learned from him because he had the proof. He had absolute proof that he knew what he was doing, he'd taught thousands of students, and the approach has been working for me so I knew it would work for other people.”
What convinced me that the Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle was the right thing for me was because of proof. Tom Hess had proof, he had taught people, many people, thousands of people, how to play guitar properly. He had also taught other people to teach guitar before I started the program, and I could see the fruits from them. To me it was very simple. He knew what he was doing, and I wanted to learn from him because I wanted the same results.
Since my guitar teaching business started from zero, it has improved massively since I've started. I've built a six-figure Canadian business up to now, and it's just going to continue to grow. It has allowed me to replace my day job as well as my wife's day job, so it has totally transformed me and my life.
If you have a teaching business that is not making a lot of income, it is very wise for you to invest in the Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle because that investment is going to give you the tools and give you the resources and access to a huge network of other teachers that can help you build your business much faster, with much less money required. Because of that, you will be able to multiply your investment very quickly.

“When I started the Elite Guitar Teachers Inner Circle, I started with nothing. I had no students, I had nothing, so I didn’t know where to begin. But Tom has laid out very clear strategies for me to follow, both business and teaching.”
Teaching comes from experience I believe, and now that I have got some experience, I feel I have progressed of course. But with Tom’s help, I’ve stayed clear of many trials and errors, so it’s been a huge benefit.
Tom has helped me to get a more clear picture of what is needed to grow a guitar business in an effective and in a fast way. So it’s that and you know how to structure your students, how to organize them in bigger groups and so forth and it’s been really helpful.
