About This Class

You're here because you want to learn how to play the guitar right ? You've never played before and you don't know where to begin. I'm here to help you with that.  I have put together THE ULTIMATE BEGINNER GUITAR COURSE. The course is an all in one, complete beginner guitar course. It guides students from complete newbies into talented picking and rhythm players. I have spent years developing and perfecting the layout of my course. Each lesson has been meticulously laid out. This ensures that as my student you always have the direction you need to succeed. I'll show you the exact steps you need to take to become a great guitarist.  This course is the FIRST WAVE of my ULTIMATE BEGINNER GUITAR COURSE. The whole aim of this wave is to: - Introduce you to guitar fundamentals. These guitar fundamentals include correct posture, string names, how to tune your guitar, how to practice correctly and how to deal with finger pain. - Introduce you to picking fundamentals. These include how to read tabs, fundamental picking techniques and exercises to practice these important techniques. - Awesome guitar riffs to practice these picking techniques. So you will cover all the really important picking technique concepts. I will then help you practice them and apply them to really awesome guitar riffs. What is a riff you say? A riff is a short sequence of notes. In this case, these riffs are awesome songs. - Introduce you to more involved guitar concepts: These include Hammer ons, Pull offs , Slides and Drop D Tuning. I will show you what each of these concepts are, will show you how to practice them and will help you apply each of them. - Strengthen and gym your hands and fingers. As a beginner player, your hands and fingers are not as strong as we need them to be. This wave has been designed to gradually help you build up the required hand strength, finger strength and finger callouses we need to move on and master chords. This ensures that by the time you reach chords in WAVE TWO, you will have developed the necessary strength to master them. What makes me qualified to teach you? From the moment I picked up my first guitar, I soon realised that this is what I wanted to do with my life. Not only did I enjoy playing the instrument, but my love for teaching was quickly uncovered. I began giving informal lessons to friends and family members who were keen to learn. This only fuelled my passion for teaching and planted the seed that inevitably lead to the creation of Music With Mario. I built my business from the ground up and currently teach guitar full time 5 days a week from 12pm to 8pm. I am proud to say that I am almost always booked up and my student retention speaks volumes for not only the progress my students have with me, but also how enjoyable my guitar courses are. I also teach guitar at a private school in my neighbourhood where I form part of their culture centre. I've been playing for over a decade and have been teaching for most of those. I have taught hundreds of students and have helped them reach their guitar playing goals. I have spent countless hours continuously improving and mastering my teaching techniques and methods. I have strived to create the easiest, most effective and most enjoyable way for beginners to learn how to play. Years of hard work have led to the creation of this course.
