Do you want to play your favorite songs without having to take the time to go through every little step of learning the instrument?

After teaching for 6 years and playing for over 10, I've learned that the traditional teaching method is not only overwhelming, but it's the main reason people end up quitting!

Going straight to playing songs that you love is a more exciting way to learn. And when you're truly enjoying every step of learning the guitar, your skills will accelerate rapidly.

I'll show you the shortcut to playing your favorite songs - with way less effort.

With properly set goals, I'll guide you through it in a way that keeps you entertained and excited to play.

You'll get better every time you play, instead of spending your time memorizing a bunch of stuff that "all musicians need to know".


If you've already gotten this far, you probably have a pretty strong interest in learning guitar - and that's truly all you need to do play.

Being able to play music freely is beyond an amazing experience. Let's make sure the learning experience is just as great, so that you get there.
