When, Where And How Will I Receive My First Guitar Lesson?

You will get your first guitar lesson 2-3 hours after you fill out the evaluation form (and select one of the lesson plans on the next page).

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

After you finish it and activate your account, I go to work on making you a better guitar player. 

Here is how: 

I go through your evaluation from in detail (I usually read it at least twice). Then I 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.

(This is the part that takes me 2-3 hours to do for you. Please be patient. I don't want to rush through this step, because it’s going to play a huge role in you becoming a better guitar player quickly.)

When your 1st lesson is ready, I upload it into your student account and send you an email telling you that it’s ready.

You log in to access it and begin to practice.

As you practice your lessons, I'm here for you every step of the way. 

For example: 

  • You can talk to me live on video during Newbie hours. (You’ll get access to this as a new student.) These are special bonus sessions I do with my new guitar students. It’s where I get to know you and help you get started with your first lesson.
  • You can ask me questions about your guitar playing (or anything else you want) during weekly Office Hours. 
  • You get unlimited email support from me directly. 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
