My name is Kurt, and I teach people to play guitar. Here's a little bit about my journey:

For some reason, by the time I was 5, I already knew I wanted to rock. It might have been that my dad played classic rock on the radio 24/7 for my entire childhood... It might've been that I was from Canada and sucked at hockey so I had to find something else to be good at. Who knows?

In any case, 5 year old me knew that guitar was my calling. The music studio near me told us that guitar is tough for really young kids though, so I waited not-so-patiently and finally had my first lesson the week I turned 10 - and I haven't looked back since.

I took lessons in theory and playing for 8 years, and ended up teaching at that same studio. I left to get my mechanical engineering degree, but I kept teaching on the side to help pay for school. I performed wherever I could, and played in several bands over the years. I still play guitar daily, and still love it over a decade later! Teaching guitar is my full time gig these days.

Over time, I created the method that I teach in my course. So many people start guitar and then quit. I quickly realized that the problem is not that guitar is too hard, it's just that the traditional methods of teaching it really suck. My goal is to get every student who takes my course to love the guitar, and come out confident and ready to play anything - without spending ages on boring scales, songs, and useless information.
