Elite Guitar Teacher Mastermind - Day 1


"The advice, encouragement and support you have given me is truly amazing! This is why I travel 1000s of miles every year, because there is nothing else like it in the world!"

The Elite Guitar Teacher Mastermind is for:

  1. Guitar teachers who want to be the VERY BEST guitar/music teacher within 100 miles of their location (even if they are less experienced or just starting out).
     
  2. Those who want to make AT LEAST 6-figures ($100,000 USD) per year.
     
  3. Guitar teachers who are willing to take their business and teaching skills to the highest level by implementing proven advice, strategies and tactics.

During the Elite Guitar Teacher Mastermind, the best guitar teachers in the world get together for 2 full days and discuss their closely guarded secrets about how to attract hundreds of new guitar students every year, teach guitar better than anyone else in their local area and earn at least 6-figures per year while only teaching guitar part time.

"I can't describe how much value I have got from the events so far and how perfect this environment has been for me, exactly the path and community I have been looking for! - Amy, Australia

Elite Guitar Teacher Mastermind - Day 2


"The event is amazing! ... It's impossible to put into words how truly great this is!!!" - James, Michigan, USA

Day 2 consisted of intense discussion about how to build a successful guitar/music teaching business. Everyone in attendance learned about the key pieces needed to grow their business, earn TONS of money and get amazing results for their students at the same time.

"The ability to meet all those successful guitar teachers from all over the world, to talk with them, to exchange ideas, to sharper your mindset, your vision... is priceless!"

"The quality of the people that attended this event were the best of any event I've ever attended. Being able to hang around with multiple six figure business people all day for several days rubs off on a person. That alone was priceless. The information presented was pure gold as well."

HESSFEST - Day 1


"Wow! What an amazing experience start to finish... I'm so grateful to have met as many of you great people as I did. Extremely refreshing, massively enlightening and unequivocally the most badass events going!!!" - Tommy, Arizona, USA

HESSFEST - our multi-day guitar vacation with musicians just like you who traveled from 51 countries to be here! Each day consists of master classes and seminars that are always on totally new topics you will want to learn about (but will not find anywhere else), opportunities to have one-on-one guitar lessons with Tom Hess and multiple other world class guitar teachers, get your questions answered, receive feedback on your playing, jam, perform, hang out and have tons of fun - day and night. 

On day 1, we began with a guitar masterclass about sweep picking from Tom Hess (USA) & Dr. Tommaso Zillio (Canada) gave a music theory masterclass on how to use dissonance to create emotional tension in music.

Then we had 1-on-1 lessons with Dr. Tommaso Zillio (Canada), Johan Tillgren (Sweden), Simon Candy (Australia) and Antony Reynaert (Beligium). We also had success session lectures from Kevin Downing (New Zealand) & Darryl Powis (UK). Plus, Total Guitar Mastery Training with Mike Philippov (USA), Gottfrid Norberg Waxin (Sweden) and Dan Mayhew (UK). To finish off the day, we had a series of mastermind events for guitar teachers and live performances by attendees.

"Hessfest is the most exciting event. So much to choose from and so many amazing musicians/tutors to learn from."


HESSFEST - Day 2 & Fretboard Domination Coaching Day 1


"Thanks to THMC and every one of you! The things I learned at these events from both the trainers and the members has certainly altered the trajectory of my business, musicianship, and personal life. Getting to know each of you better has been worth the cost of admission." - Eric, Pennsylvania, USA

Fretboard Domination Coaching solves one of the biggest problems in guitar players’ knowledge. Many guitar players never overcome this challenge, but WHEN they actually do, it has a massive effect on ALL areas of their guitar playing. In just 3 days, we learn how to banish one of the most crippling problems that stands in the way of creative guitar playing - lack of fretboard mastery.

"This was seriously a great event! I will never look at the fretboard in quite the same way again, not too mention the knowledge I can know impart on my students! Thank You :)"

"This was intense! I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was blown away by the content, the training, and the application! I came away a much better guitarist and would absolutely recommend this to someone else and would attend again!"

On day 2 of HESSFEST, we had a blues guitar masterclass from Antony Reynaert (Beligium) & a masterclass from Kevin Downing (New Zealand) on how to easily read charts to make money. Tom Hess (USA) also gave a music career talk on the easiest, fastest and most reliable ways to make it in the music business.

1-on-1 lessons were taught by Tom Hess (USA), Kevin Downing (New Zealand) and Jure Golobic (Slovenia). We also had a success session lecture from Dan Mayhew (UK). Plus, Total Guitar Mastery Training with Mike Philippov (USA), Gottfrid Norberg Waxin (Sweden) and Johan Tillgren (Sweden).

To finish off the day, we had a series of mastermind events for guitar teachers and live performances by pro level students in attendance.

"It was really awesome. Thanks for all the great work you do."

We had more 1-on-1 lessons with Tom Hess (USA), Dr. Tommaso Zillio (Canada), Craig Tuttle (USA), Antony Reynaert (Beligium) and Mike Philippov (USA) and mastermind events for guitar teachers.

"This was the best HESSFEST I've ever attended and it had to be great to top last year's event. The master classes this year across the board were the best ever."

"The best Tom Hess event experience ever. The EGTIC was a huge boost to my mindset, Hessfest went to another level, with the finest presentations yet, and that's saying something seeing how amazing last year was... To say the events provided massive value is a ridiculous understatement."

Ultimate Creativity And Guitar Soloing Mastery Training Week - Day 1


"Thank you THMC! Very cool event :) I will definitely come again!"

On day 1, we laid the foundation for ultimate lead guitar creativity. The 8 world class trainers helped our attendees uncover their unique creative roadblocks and improve the most important lead guitar soloing skills, such as: creating emotional guitar licks, making notes sing with vibrato and applying what they know to real music. Almost everyone is playing better already… and we are just getting started!

"I don't think there’s a player out there that could not come to this event. I don't care how good they are. If they come here, they're going to find improvement."

 


Guitar Practice Motivation Tips


Ultimate Creativity And Guitar Soloing Mastery Training Week - Day 2


"I didn’t realize how much emotion you could get out of a guitar until this event." - Donald, Massachusetts, USA

"My guitar playing has improved in all of the ways that it can. I got blisters, oh well not blisters, but you know my fingers are tender for the first time since I was like 12. My fingers hurt from all the bending and vibratoing I’ve been doing and it’s awesome."

Today, we built on the foundation from Day 1 by working on creating musical ideas away from the guitar, forced creativity and transforming average guitar solos into masterpieces. All attendees feel like they are drinking from a fire hose of lead guitar wisdom… and we still have 7 days to go!

"You did an outstanding job with this event and I look forward to seeing how it evolves next time it is offered."


Ultimate Creativity And Guitar Soloing Mastery Training Week - Day 3


"My guitar ability has improved astronomically in the short amount of time that I’ve been at the Ultimate Creativity And Guitar Soloing Mastery Training Week."

We continued building momentum on everything covered in days 1-2 and trained our attendees on how to use creative “buffers” to give themselves more time to think while soloing, composing memorable guitar solos away from the guitar and erasing creative limitations that get in the way of self-expression. It's so exciting to see huge breakthroughs in everyone's playing!

"I knew would help me just become so much more creative. And help me learn how to do it for myself, as well as people that I teach. So, that’s why I did it." - Maurice, Halifax, Canada


Ultimate Creativity And Guitar Soloing Mastery Training Week - Day 4


"By attending Ultimate Creativity And Guitar Soloing Mastery Training Week, my guitar playing has improved a lot."

On this day, the focus shifted from training new concepts to deeper mastery of everything we’ve done in the last 4 days. We helped the attendees install creativity concepts into their brains and hands. A lot of breakthroughs happened, as the ideas from Days 1-3 suddenly started to feel easy. By this point, everyone has played guitar for 32 hours (VIP members played for 40 hours)… but nobody showed signs of quitting! :)

"I can’t express how much improvement I’ve made in such a short time. It really is mind-blowing."

Ultimate Creativity And Guitar Soloing Mastery Training Week - Day 5


"From attending the ultimate creativity and guitar solo mastery training week my playing has improved tenfold." - Preston, Utah, USA

"The thing I love about Ultimate Creativity And Guitar Soloing Mastery Training Week is we all sit in a room and there’s this great energy of like everybody learning at the same time. It’s okay to make mistakes and it’s very inspiring."

Day 5 was all about application and integration of skills from Days 1-4. This was the breakthrough day when many students felt like real musicians for the first time.

"It’s amazing. I will definitely come to ultimate creativity training again in the future."


Ultimate Creativity And Guitar Soloing Mastery Training Week - Day 6


"I knew that creativity training week was going to be awesome because I attended the same event a couple of years back. And when I went into that event, that was the first event that I attended and it was just mind-blowing."

Day 6 - the day many have waited and traveled thousands of miles for. Everyone received the Certificate Of Guitar Creativity Training Completion, for doing something few guitarists in the world have the guts, ambition and desire to do. We are so proud and grateful for the opportunity to help our attendees achieve this milestone in their playing.

"Tom Hess events never disappoint, they over-deliver. So, when I was offered the ticket or the chance to buy the ticket for the ultimate creativity and guitar soloing mastery, again it was a no-brainer, it was just click buy."


Elite Force Special Training - Day 1


"I knew this event was going to be awesome because every Tom Hess event is awesome. So, I’ve made a personal commitment to attend all of them in the future. Almost without question where they are."

Day 1 was about making “wrong” notes sound GREAT and using structural pitch solo creation, melodic seed soloing and other mind-blowing creativity concepts we only share with a small group of Elite Force attendees.

"It’s really inspiring to be around such insane guitar players as I met here. - Amy, Australia

"My guitar playing has really improved greatly. I had huge gaps actually in my playing even though I've played a long time."

Elite Force Special Training - Day 2


"It's really inspiring to be around all the other crazy good students who have different ideas for how to approach a certain topic... My guitar playing has improved a lot!"

On day 2, we continued integrating everyone’s skills with more intense soloing and creativity drills that make musical expression effortless. Ghost chord soloing was a powerful session that helped many improve their phrasing in 45 minutes flat.

"Being around the other students of Tom Hess is very inspiring and motivating, because all those guys wait a whole year to come here and they're all about music all about learning, and all those guys are really helpful and positive."


Elite Force Special Training - Day 3


"I've never experienced such freedom in creativity after completing the event. My skills just playing that long for a day has made it all worth while. The valuable information I’ve got in terms of creativity for my own playing is priceless."

The last day is always a bittersweet day. We are super proud to hear the improvements in everyone’s playing and award the certificates of completion for Elite Force Special Training. At the same time, everyone is sad that the events are ending and it’s a whole year until we see our AWESOME attendees again at the 2020 events. The countdown to June 2020 is already on! :)

"I really enjoyed myself at that event and I really felt like I took a huge leap forward in my own guitar playing. And I know Tom Hess since many years back, and I always know that he over-delivers at every single event and every single product that he does."
