Is it difficult to keep your guitar teaching schedule full with serious students?
Do you want your students to improve faster?
Do you find it hard to keep your students motivated?
Do you wish your students practiced more?
Do some of your students quit taking lessons after a few months?
Are you not earning enough money to live the life you really want?
Do you lose money during summertime and holidays because your students don't attend lessons?
Are you unable to take time off from teaching without losing money?
Every day, guitar teachers just like you tell me things like:
You’re Probably Passionate About Teaching Guitar, But…
… solving all these problems and building a successful guitar teaching business can be really hard on your own.
Many guitar teachers struggle with the exact same things (including myself in the past).
One way guitar teachers try to overcome these challenges is to copy what they see other teachers doing. The problem is, most of those ‘other teachers’ struggle too. Why copy stuff that doesn’t work?
Another common way is to just start teaching in order to gain experience along the way. The problem here is they waste years trying and hoping to get things right. Gaining experience through trial and error is a long and painful process (for both you and your students).
If you’ve done this too, I know how frustrating it feels, a lot of guitar teachers have felt this way. What I found are better ways to solve these problems, become a better teacher and earn a lot more money teaching guitar lessons.
With The Right Guidance, Training And (A Proven) Step-By-Step System, You Can:
EARN (at least) 6-FIGURES TEACHING GUITAR…
If this sounds too unbelievable for you right now, I know how you feel. I too used to be very skeptical and didn't believe this is possible. Not only is it possible, but it is in fact a reality for me and for many guitar teachers I mentor. And it can be true for you too.
The secret to becoming a highly successful guitar teacher with a thriving teaching business is to have both
PROVEN SYSTEMS AND THE BEST METHODS OF TEACHING GUITAR THAT ATTRACT NEW STUDENTS LIKE A MAGNET AND MAKE THEM WANT TO STAY WITH YOU FOR MANY YEARS
Most teachers don't have either of these things. They are limited by outdated guitar teaching methods and weak systems that keep them from earning big money teaching guitar.
When you have these things and an easy way to implement them, you can:
- help your students improve faster
- build your reputation as the best teacher around town
- earn a lot more money teaching music
- avoid the feeling of being burned out from teaching
- have a lot more fun teaching guitar
- finally get paid for time off
22 years ago, I struggled to make money teaching guitar. I felt stuck in a rut for a long time.
Over many years, I created better methods of teaching and developed systems that worked much better than anything else out there.

“I Live In A Small Town; Can This Coaching Program Work For Me?”
Absolutely. We have successful members from both big cities and small towns who have reached multiple 6-figures teaching guitar lessons. One of our multiple 6 figure members lives in a town of only 9000 people.
If he can do it… you can too.
“Can I Really Prevent My Competitors From Joining Your Coaching Program?”
Yes. Our number 1 priority is protecting our members and their businesses. We block the competitors of our members all the time.
Once you join our coaching program, you get clear and simple instructions how to prevent competitors from joining the program (it’s simple and easy to do).
“Do I Need To Be An Advanced Guitar Player To Begin Teaching Guitar?”
No. Becoming a great teacher has little to do with very advanced levels of guitar playing. Many excellent guitar teachers are not highly advanced players.
You get the training you need to teach students (even very advanced ones).
“I’m 18 Years Old; Am I Too Young To Earn Money Teaching Guitar Lessons?”
No. The earlier you get the coaching, training and knowledge, the better. A few of our members are in this age range too. :)
“I’m 57 Years Old; Am I Too Old To Start A Guitar Teaching Business?”
No. We have very successful members as old as 66. :)
“I Have A Good Paying Job Already In Another Industry; But I’m Unhappy There And Am Considering Changing Careers. Is It Too Late For Me To Start Teaching Guitar?
It’s never too late. We have a very successful member here who earned his PhD in physics and worked at a university. He decided to join this program, implemented what he learned and built a very successful teaching business (earning much, much more than what a scientist earns)… more importantly, he’s much happier doing what he truly loves now.
We have other members who had also made the career change and never looked back.
“I Have A Full-Time Job Now; Can I Build A Guitar Teaching Business Part Time On Nights Or Weekends?
Yes. Most of members once had (good paying) day jobs and learned to start a successful guitar teaching business and phase out their old day jobs. If they can do it, you can too!
You can start your business part time on nights or weekends to get it going. Many of our successful members started out exactly this way.
“Can I Teach Out Of My Home And Build A Serious Business From Here?”
Yes. Most start out this way. In fact, it’s generally a good idea to begin this way. That’s also how I got started.
“Can I Teach Out Of My Home If I Have A Wife, A Dog And 2 Small Kids? It Can Get A Little Noisy In Our House”
Yes. This is also how I started. A wife, 2 kids, a cat all in a very small house. (Actually, I taught in 1 car garage space, no heat, no air conditioning, no windows and no ventilation. Yep, it was really bad, but that’s where I built this company in the beginning. If I did it, you can too!
“I’m Skeptical, Does This REALLY Work?”
It’s ok to be skeptical. Actually, a reasonable amount of skepticism is a good thing. There’s a lot of nonsense out there… but hundreds of successful guitar teachers and music school owners can’t be wrong… see what actual members say:
“Will You Help Me Build An Online Guitar Teaching Business?”
No. This coaching program does not work for online guitar teaching. It is strictly for you to teach offline in your local area.
If you want to teach online, I cannot help you.
“Can I Expect To Pick Up Students In The First Month?”
This depends on you. If you listen to what I'm teaching you and implement what I'm teaching you, then you are very, very likely to get new students in a short period of time. I cannot guarantee you any specific result because I cannot control what you will (or will not) do.
You will get out of this coaching program what you put into it.
“Do You Suggest Getting Started With Your Program Prior To Getting Any Students?”
In any other industry, people typically go to a university or receive other forms of education and training before they ever work in that field. So of course it makes sense to get the education, training and coaching right now whether you’ve already started teaching or not.
