Personalized Online Course: A Guitar Player’s Guide to Music Theory

 

When I wrote A Guitar Player’s Guide to Music Theory, I focused on presenting the material in a way that would invite guitarists of any level to approach it successfully without a teacher. Because so many people have underlying tension or resistance to anything that resembles a classroom experience, I encouraged readers to go at their own pace, stay open and relaxed and enjoy the process.

 

As much as I love the idea of learning in this way, I also know that many people have trouble completing a self-study course without support. In contrast, I have found that when working through the book with my students in private lessons, I am able to answer questions, design personalized assignments and spot any misconceptions or faulty thinking. I can help them with the pace of study and offer extended exercises that allow them to ingrain the information more deeply than they might challenge themselves to do. In the process I can also show them ways to apply the principles to their playing.

 

With that in mind, I have created an online course with three options that allow you to choose the amount of personal help you receive. All of the options include both a print version and a PDF of A Guitar Player’s Guide to Music Theory  plus extra worksheets and access to nine instructional videos. In these videos I explain the principle concepts in the book exactly as I would if I were in a private lesson with you.

 

The second option includes all of the features of the first one, but also gives you the opportunity to communicate with me by email to receive personalized assignments and feedback.

 

The third option includes the features of the first two, plus three 30-minute meetings with me via Skype. In these meetings I will help you to further understand and implement the topics you are working on. As time permits, you are welcome to bring up any other guitar related questions you may have.
