Become the Musician You Want To Be
Skyrocket your skills with the StringKick All Access Pass.
Before you lies a vast musical universe...
So where will you go and explore?
Will you travel the stretched-out plains of post-rock? The lush lagoons of dream pop? The dense jungle of free jazz?
It’s really up to you and your unique taste.
Whether that’s Armenian thrash metal or quirky indiefolk. Whether it’s jazz-inspired singer-songwriter music or art-rock infused with sixties riffs and Dylanesque lyrics.
You choose your own adventure.
As with any adventure there will be struggles along the way. But as long as you explore the music that fascinates you, your journey will be deeply meaningful and infinitely rewarding.
If you want to shape your own musical path, I made this site for you. It will help you grow the essential skills you need on your journey to become the musician you want to be.
You can check out in-depth guides on topics like ear training, improvisation, chord names, performing on stage and much more. They'll explain what you need to do to reach the next level.
The courses go a step beyond that. They don't just on explain how to do something. They help you put in laser-focused practice to get all the information into your system, develop your skills and become a better musician.

My Music Learning Philosophy
I'll admit: I'm a bit of a nerdy teacher. I read books about this stuff for fun. (Don't worry, I also Netflix like normal people.) Long story short, I think about the best way to learn music a lot.
Here's what I believe:
10% explanation, 90% practice
With a little effort you can find tons of information about learning and playing guitar. But how does all of that information help you become a better player? Yeah, that’s the hard part.
That’s why my courses are 10% explanation and 90% practice. Together, we’ll put in the practice you need to get everything you learn into your system, making it easy and effortless to use.
Learning with real music is essential
I could spend hours explaining what a kilogram is, but it'd be much quicker to shove a 1KG weight into your hands. That’s why I use as much real music in my courses as possible.
Instead of a stuffy laboratory class room, I like to think of my courses as an expedition into the jungle of real-world music. I want you to hear, feel and experience what things actually sound like in real songs. That’s the only way it can truly make sense to you.
Also, geeky music education opinions aside, it’s just a lot more fun, right?
No Such Thing as a Bad Student
When I was 19, I walked into my first singing lesson. I was nervous, until my teacher said: ‘Now, if there’s ever anything you don’t understand, or if you mess up, that’ll be my fault. I’m the teacher and I’m responsible for your learning’.
That idea has been a cornerstone of my teaching philosophy ever since: it’s my job to make sure you understand, learn and make progress. It's your job to relax and follow along.
It’s why I have a ‘love it or get a refund’ policy: if I don’t deliver, let me know within 30 days and you’ll get a full refund. No questions asked.

Get Started for Free
Want to see what these courses are all about? The best way to find out is to take them for a spin. You can run through the first couple of lessons of each course for free, so you can see how the full course works. Here's a quick overview of each of them.
Guitar Chord Bootcamp
In this course, you'll learn 96 essential chords, from A to G#m7. If that sounds complicated, I promise it's a lot easier than it sounds. All the chord names and fretboard shapes may seem overwhelming, but by learning them in small chunks, it becomes much, much easier.
Make Your Ears Awesome: Riffs and Melodies
Figuring out songs by ear just might be the best way to train your ears. This course will help you do just that. It helps you learn over 50 songs by ear using an interactive TAB, so you can fill in your answer and check if you got it right.
Make Your Ears Awesome: Chord Progressions
You guessed it: this is the chord version of Make Your Ears Awesome. Listen to a chord progression, use your guitar to figure out the chords and check if you get it right. The songs will start off simple and slowly become more challenging.
Strumming Skills Bootcamp
This one's brand new! In this course you'll develop a number of foundational strumming skills. You'll learn when to strum up or down, the difference between straight and swing rhythm, but you'll also practice figuring out strum patterns by ear. Of course, you'll train all these skills in exercises I've created for you as well as more than 30 real songs, so you can hear how this stuff works 'in the real world'.
