Start Playing And Creating Music To Express Your Musical Self 

You will learn everything you need to know about the guitar, from how to hold it and make your first sound, to how to play the guitar in a band! This course also focuses on how to express yourself through music by teaching beginner improvisation (soloing). The goal of The Music Coach Guitar Program is for you to fully express who you are through the instrument. 

Content and Overview 

I designed this program to help you begin your musical journey on the guitar in the most efficient and fun way. This program is suitable for anyone who has a desire to play and has a working guitar. There are over 2.5 hours of video lessons and practice videos. 

The layout of the course uses a simple format: 

-1 lesson video that explains a new concept/technique, 

-1 practice video that has voice overs and graphics to help you play along with the teacher on the screen in "real time". 

There are twelve sets of lessons and practice videos that help you learn melody, rhythm, harmony, and improvising. This program also contains a "Jam Room" with a virtual band that you can play along with at different speeds. As an added bonus there are also five music theory made easy animated videos that explain the basic building blocks of music. 

At the end of this course you will have the confidence to play the guitar both on your own and with others in different musical situations.   

The course project

Use the "Jam Room" Videos to practice the song with a virtual band.  Upload a video of you playing with the music coach song with the Jam Room band, and share it with the class.  Upload your file to Google Drive, Youtube, Vimeo, or any other hosting service.
