Basically, we take the approach of a sports team instead of your typical music lessons.
I’ve always found it strange that most music lessons spend so much time talking about ideas instead of actually building the muscle memory necessary to execute techniques on the instrument.
Instead, every lesson here has large amounts of time dedicated to drills building your fundamental techniques so you’re better every time you leave.
Imagine if instead of spending time drilling passing, shooting, and teamwork for hours every week, basketball players instead met once a week for 30 minutes to talk about the principles of basketball.
What would happen when the team tried to come together to play a game?
Here are just a few of the things that set us apart:
The Curriculum is designed to take you from a complete beginner to a professional level, gig-ready guitar ninja in about 4 years. Here are the cliff notes of what you’ll learn:
Located at 3740 E. Texas St. between Airline and Industrial off I20!
Located in Downtown Ruston between Visual Differences and No. 9 Books!
We currently offer Group Coaching, Private Coaching, and even a few courses (coming soon!) all available online in the comfort of your own home! You can use these as supplements to your in-person sessions or as a stand alone service.
Using our built-from-scratch curriculum and our coaching vs teaching philosophy, we regularly have students doing in 4-6 years what it took Chris 8-10!
We’ve had students as young as 5 and as old as 84, ranging from Shred Metalheads to Acoustic Campfire Strummers. We’ve helped them all move towards their goals and become better players.
Certainly! Basically everything is available for free these days somewhere on the internet. What you’re paying for with us is the certainty of what to learn when and the countless hours you’ll save in the process! Not to mention the expertise of someone in the room able to correct any technique issues and nip bad habits in the bud!
We think that it’d be silly for a basketball coach to explain a concept to his team for 30 minutes once a week and then expect them to go home and practice. Why is guitar any different?
While we certainly go to the board to explain new concepts from time to time, the large majority of lesson time is devoted to PLAYING and burning things into your muscle memory so it’s always readily available!
That depends on what program you end up enrolling in! We offer everything from focused practice sessions to Improvisation classes to Private Lessons that all range in price.
Most students end up paying between $150-$400 / month, but we offer a free intro lesson to go over your goals and see what programs would be the best fit!
If you come to all your lessons, focus while you’re here, and practice at least 15 minutes a day on average, ABSOLUTELY! Most of our students progress about 2-3 times faster than Chris did when he was learning.
We have checklists for every level built-in to our curriculum. You’ll start as a “White Belt” working on your “Red Belt” and continue progressing all the way to “Black Belt” Guitar Ninja!
Don’t put it off any longer! Even if it isn’t with us, go find a teacher that you like and trust to help you towards your goals! Every day you put it off is one more day that it is less likely to ever happen.
Not only do we offer a FREE introductory lesson to get to know you and make sure that we’re a good fit for each other; we also GUARANTEE to have you reading basic music and playing your first song in 30 minutes or your money back. 😉
