Details and FAQ's

Absolutely. Our step-by-step curriculum is based around our best-selling Guitar For Absolute Beginners book. You’re supported with clear video warm-ups and practice guides, and most importantly with small group live-online classes with expert teachers. Thousands of complete beginners learned to play with us, and you can, too.

Our classes are step-by-step and song-by-song with an expert coach.  Step-by-step means that new material is presented in a broken down, sequential manner with small, achievable steps. Song-by-song means that we teach using real songs, which make our classes fun and motivating. And an expert coach means that our teachers are more than highly proficient musicians–they are skilled at explaining and motivating students to reach understanding and

If you try out our classes, we think you’ll realize that the value you receive is incredible.

We recommend that you schedule a free one-on-one “Ready-Set-Play” video evaluation and orientation after you sign up for your trial—it just takes one click. But some students have already looked at our classes and are ready to just start jumping in.

Our mission is Coaching Personal Greatness One Lesson At A Time. We believe that each of us is capable of more. By learning and improving in music, we not only experience the fun, connection and excitement of playing, but we live one of life’s greatest lessons, “what you put in is what you get out.” Playing music helps us all be calmer, have better focus, be better at accomplishing great things over time. Also, playing guitar is super fun!

Nope! Back when our founder was starting the school, people used to make fun of him. “Dan,” they’d say “don’t you think your mission should maybe be to, you know, teach guitar? What are you trying to do, change the world? You only have 20 students!”  Now we have over 1,000 students, because it turns out that lots of people feel greatness inside of themselves that they want express. There are lots of ways for us to become more of the person we want to be–and learning to play a beautiful chord or a beautiful song is one of them.
