What makes this program different

Too often teachers focus on explaining the theory and nothing else. As a new student you need to develop your muscle memory. To do that, you need to play everyday in a way that enhances your technique and doesn't bore you to death! 

This program is focused on playing for a decent (but manageable) length of time each day. This way the concepts will stick and you will improve steadily.

Not everything you play is going to sound amazing but you need to spend time getting through the initial barriers that everyone faces when learning Guitar.

A common problem for new students is not knowing what to practice each day. So they end up going over the same exercises again and again and it becomes de-motivating. 

In this program each day is mapped out for you. And, each day has something different. This way you can free up your mind for just enjoying and learning. You can relax as you know you're heading in the right direction.

what this program is NOT

A miracle that will have you playing anything you want in just a few weeks. 

It takes a long time to master an instrument - no matter how good the teacher and how many hours you practice.

This program is designed to give you a solid foundation that will set you up for future development.

The content is basic and not flashy. But If you're serious you need to learn to walk before you run.

It's not just tutorials. You're 15 minutes a day with me is going to be spent practising constructively - a bit like doing a work out video with an experienced instructor.
