Private One-on-One Guitar Instruction
with Tom Hess

I only accept highly motivated guitarists into my Private One-on-One Guitar Training Program. These intense private guitar lessons are held in my studio located in the northwest Chicago suburban area.

How much does it cost? 
You have three investment options:
$997.00 Monthly
includes four 1-hour private training sessions per month. 
$2,777.00 Quarterly
includes four 1-hour private training sessions per month for 3 months.
$9,777.00 Annually
includes four 1-hour private training sessions per month for 12 months.

This elite training is not for everybody!  I am highly selective about who I accept into my private studio. To be considered, all applicants must submit the following:

  1. An original essay of at least 1,000 words. The essay must explain your top 3 musical goals and your specific musical challenges in full detail.
  2. An audition. You must submit 2 samples of your playing in audio (.mp3) or video (.mpeg or .mp4) format. The first sample should display one of your strengths on the guitar. The second sample should display one weakness you have on the guitar. Both samples should be no less than 1 minute long, but no more than 2 minutes long.

The elite training program is currently full. You have 2 options:

  1. Apply for the program anyway, if accepted I'll put you on my waiting list. I will contact you when an opening becomes available in my schedule. 
  2. Consider Breakthrough Guitar Lessons instead. 

Thank You....
