A Practical Plan for Useful Playing

Contrary to traditional teaching methods that march people through an arduous and expensive collection of books, we focus on skills that get students the furthest fastest and then work to cultivate complete, polished players that have a useful toolkit for most playing situations.

We Strive to Make Guitar Easier to Learn

Our straightforward approach stems from almost 20 years of searching through miles and miles of resources with the sole purpose of making complex skills accessible to everyday people. Our chief objective during our guitar lessons is to teach concepts in a way that allows students to use new skills as seamlessly as possible, so they can spend less time wondering how to get good at guitar and more time actually working toward it.

We Want to Spread the Word About the Ukulele

The ukulele is one of the most accessible musical instruments there is, and it's so affordable that there is practically zero risk in giving it a try. Plus, many people who make ukulele resources try to keep things as simple as possible, so anybody — kids and even people who feel they lack musical talent — can play thousands of their favorite songs with minimal knowledge.
