Lesson Pros 

Who this course is for:
  • For the beginner - This is a great starting point - you will get 10 major chords which are used literally in millions of songs. Plus get strumming tips and patterns.
  • For the people that are saying my fingers are too fat, long or long, believe me I have heard all of that but truly believe anyone can play guitar if you are willing to put in the work. It takes time to learn the guitar. For most people it doesn’t just happen overnight but when things finally start to click it is really fun.
  • For anyone looking to meet new people. Playing the guitar is a great way to make new friends. I have met my closest friends playing music. There is a huge community of like-minded people playing music in every part of the world.

Being played on radio stations all around the world, their success has won them a place in the hearts of millions. They have been featured in numerous newspapers articles, television (WCCO 4), and magazines. 

They have won many competitions for their music and teaching, including Chuck’s countless 1st place titles in fiddling and trick fiddling, Chuck and Sandi's band No Grass Limit have won awards, here are some of the most recent ones: Songwriter of the Year - Sandi Millar, Album of the Year -“Originals” – No Grass Limit – Universe Unlimited, Guitar Performer of the Year - Clint Birtzer (Guitar Player for NGL), Mandolin Performer of the Year - Chuck Millar, Bluegrass Band of the Year (Contemporary) - No Grass Limit and Vocal Group of the Year - No Grass Limit.

After spending most of their lives on the concert stage, Chuck and Sandi felt a strong need to give back to people of all ages. In 2002, they came up with an idea to start a lesson program. Chuck’s multi-instrumental talent and experience teaching, and Sandi’s innate business sense made them a perfect fit to create a wonderful lesson program.

The result is Lesson Pros, offering private and group lessons to students of all ages and abilities at the Lesson Pros studios online.
