Description

You're here because you want to learn how to play the guitar right ?

I have put together THE ULTIMATE BEGINNER GUITAR COURSE. The course is an all in one, complete beginner guitar course. It guides students from complete newbies into talented picking and rhythm players.

I have spent years developing and perfecting the layout of my course. Each lesson has been meticulously laid out. This ensures that as my student you always have the direction you need to succeed.

I'll show you the exact steps you need to take to become a great guitarist. 

This course is the SECOND WAVE of my ULTIMATE BEGINNER GUITAR COURSE. The whole aim of this wave is to:

You will be taught what open chords are, how to play them and really become an open chord master.

You will be taught what power chords are, will be shown the necessary theory to understand them, and will be given the tools to dominate them.

- Help you master Barre Chords.

You will be taught what barre chords are, and will be shown how to really take this dreaded chord and master it effectively and easily.

You will be shown how to identify various beats, will be given some important strumming rules, and will be shown how to become a rhythm machine.

- Help you master different tuning methods, how to use a capo, how to tune your guitar using your ears, and much more.

This course includes SO MUCH content to really help you become a fantastic, well rounded guitarist. 

What makes me qualified to teach you?

From the moment I picked up my first guitar, I soon realised that this is what I wanted to do with my life. Not only did I enjoy playing the instrument, but my love for teaching was quickly uncovered. I began giving informal lessons to friends and family members who were keen to learn. This only fuelled my passion for teaching and planted the seed that inevitably lead to the creation of Music With Mario.

I built my business from the ground up and currently teach guitar full time 5 days a week from 12pm to 8pm. I am proud to say that I am almost always booked up and my student retention speaks volumes for not only the progress my students have with me, but also how enjoyable my guitar courses are. I also teach guitar at a private school in my neighbourhood where I form part of their culture centre.

I've been playing for over a decade and have been teaching for most of those. I have taught hundreds of students and have helped them reach their guitar playing goals.

I have spent countless hours continuously improving and mastering my teaching techniques and methods. I have strived to create the easiest, most effective and most enjoyable way for beginners to learn how to play.

Years of hard work have led to the creation of this course. The Ultimate Beginner Guitar Course.

My Promise to You:

I'm a full time guitar instructor. I'll be here for you every step of the way. If you have any questions about the course content or anything related to this topic, you can always post a question in the course or send me a direct message.
