Getting nowhere with so-called 'Beginner' Guitar Lessons?

We all pick up the guitar with an image of having fun and being able to play our favourite songs. However, if you’re anything like most people, you’ve probably found that playing guitar is a lot harder than you thought it would be. 

Your favourite guitar players make it look so easy and effortless, but when you try to play it just feels difficult and frustrating. Surely playing guitar isn’t supposed to be this hard?

You are NOT alone!

I understand exactly how you feel. I remember how daunting it was to start out with guitar, and I know how frustrating it is to be unable to play the way you want. The good news is that it doesn’t need to be this way. If you are struggling to learn guitar, it’s not because you lack the ability to be a good player. It’s because, so far, you haven’t had the help and guidance you need to make great progress.

There are millions of ‘guitar lesson’ videos and websites out there, full of tips and advice… but there’s a big problem with learning guitar this way. It’s a sea of random, unreliable information, and you don’t know where to begin. More importantly, the players in videos don’t know anything about you – they can’t see or hear you play, and they can’t give you feedback on how you’re doing. It’s no wonder that 90% of beginner guitar players give up playing within just one year of getting started.

What makes my Online Guitar Lessons different?

The one thing you need to get good at guitar is exactly what you never get in 99% of online lessons:

Real interaction, feedback, and personal attention from an experienced teacher

What makes my lessons the best is not simply their high-quality. My online lessons are a real two-way learning process, just like in-person guitar lessons would be.

About Me

Hi, my name is Jo Bannerman. I’m a professional guitar teacher based in Glasgow, Scotland, and helping people learn to play guitar is my passion. Since I started teaching in 2013, I have helped hundreds of beginner students of all ages learn guitar successfully from scratch, and I know how to make the learning process fun and enjoyable for each and every student.

Most professional guitarists have long forgotten what it was like to start out and not understand how everything works. They can’t relate to beginners, and they don’t know how to break down what they’re doing in a way that’s understandable. In a nutshell, they’re not teachers – and that’s the key difference between them and me.

I have perfected a set of teaching methods that make the learning curve feel easy and achievable for anyone starting out. My guitar lessons are specially designed for beginners, and I will ensure you have a great experience and get the results you want learning guitar. When you take lessons with me, you will be playing with confidence before you know it – and that’s a promise.

Here's how your lessons will work

Getting started with online guitar lessons

Step 1: Tell Me About Yourself

When you sign up you will be invited to answer a detailed questionnaire about your experience with guitar and music so far (if any). Tell me about your favourite music, the songs or players who inspired you to play, and let me know whether you want to learn acoustic or electric guitar.

Step 2: Get Your First Lesson

I will immediately get to work creating your first lesson, and I’ll send you an email as soon as it’s ready. Depending on what topic(s) are in your lessons, you will receive a combination of written material, video and audio. You’ll be able to view or download your lessons on any device, from anywhere in the world.

Online guitar lessons you can access from any device

Step 3: Access Your Lesson Area

When you receive your first lesson, I will also create a private folder for you that will become your own guitar lesson hub. This will store all your lessons in one convenient location that you can access whenever you want. All your future lessons will be uploaded to this folder, clearly organised so that you can easily review the things you’ve done in the past.

Step 4: Get Help & Feedback

If you ever get stuck or don’t understand something, I’m here for you. You can ask questions and get help at any time, and I’ll get back to you quickly with answers and solutions you can trust. You can send questions by email, or send me video or audio recordings that demonstrate the problem you want me to see or hear.

… Continue On Your Path To Success!

As you progress, I will send you new lessons tailor-made for your playing goals and what you need to work on. From your feedback, I’ll be able to perfectly customise your lessons as we go and make sure you’re getting exactly what you need to take the next step and make rapid progress.

What you can look forward to in your lessons

The results you want - Guaranteed

I’ve seen many online guitar lesson programs come and go, and they’re all the same – you get access to a bunch of pre-recorded videos (by different players) that are no different from what you can find on Youtube for free. You sign up, then you’re left to sink or swim on your own with no support. These programs may be cheap, but they’re expensive for what they are – a pale comparison to real guitar lessons.

No other online program gives you a real guitar teacher who creates customised, tailor-made lessons just for you. No other program lets you keep in touch with your teacher, ask questions, and get help when you need it. And that’s what makes this program so different from all the others out there. You don’t get ‘access to stuff’ – you get real guitar lessons that deliver real results you can see and hear.

It’s time to take action and kickstart your guitar playing journey. You can do it! Don’t waste another minute thinking you don’t have what it takes, or trying to make sense of the endless sea of generic information online. My lessons will have you playing great guitar before you know it, and that’s a guarantee:
