Can I Try Only One Guitar Lesson Before Committing Myself?

You can cancel at any time (yes, even after 1 lesson). 

But if you aren’t convinced I'm the guitar teacher for you, please don’t start lessons with me yet. 

Instead, do this: 

  1. Watch my guitar students play. These students weren’t gifted with natural talent. Most were nowhere near the advanced guitar playing level when I began teaching them. They were simply normal, average, regular people who followed what I taught, trained and coached them to do.
  2. See more reviews about my online guitar lessons.
  3. Email me at and we can discuss your musical goals in more detail.

Don’t worry: I have zero interest in convincing you to start lessons with me unless I'm 100% certain I can help you. 

If I can’t help you - I’d rather refer you to someone who can help you better than I can.

That’s because when you do start lessons with me, I invest a huge amount of time into helping you. 

Here is how it works: 

First, you fill out an evaluation from to tell me about your musical skills, knowledge, strengths, weaknesses, frustrations, background and guitar playing goals.

Next, I go through your 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.

(This part takes me 2-3 hours to do for you.)

And 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. 

As you can see, I invest a lot of time to create your lesson strategy and help you improve when we start working together. 

This is why I want you to take your time before making your decision. 

Plus: if you are serous about getting big results in your playing…

…it’s in your interest to only start lessons when you can fully commit to practicing what I teach at least 5 times per week for 30 minutes per day. (Because that's the only way you'll get real results.)

Until then, if you are unsure of how I can help you - just email me and let’s talk about your guitar playing :)
