STOP! Before You Give Up Learning Guitar Forever, Watch This Important Video…

Hi There! Tomas Michaud here. Have you ever been confused about what you should be doing to really play guitar? I’ll take it a step further… Do you ever find yourself thinking some of these thoughts:

  • I want to play for family and friends, jam with others or play for my own relaxation and personal pleasure, but I’m not sure which is the best way to learn?
  • I want to feel confident when I pick up the guitar?
  • Maybe I’m just not talented?
  • Am I wasting my time or is there a better, more efficient way to learn?
  • I’m feeling stuck.
  • Good private instructors seem expensive and traveling is time consuming.
  • Learning bits and pieces from YouTube, DVDs, Books or well meaning friends is going nowhere?

If you can relate to ANY of the above, then you need this: A no B.S. Guitar Learning System developed by a competent, experienced guitar instructor.

A Brief But Important History Lesson (No Quiz Afterwards)

For the past 32 years my work has involved not only teaching and playing guitar, but also hiring music teachers as the owner of Starland School of Music, a world class music education center in the SF Bay Area.

I realized that most teachers lacked was a systematic way of teaching. Even good teachers were at the mercy at the whims of the student and their desire to learn the latest riff or lick. When teachers tried to apply some structure they often relied on outdated materials that were both boring and not the way people really play guitar.

Out of this need for both an effective system and a methodology that taught guitar in a real world way I developed a step-by-step systematic approach to teaching called the Starland Guitar System.

For the past 20 years I’ve been training guitar instructors in this system and together we’ve successfully taught thousands of students the joys of playing the guitar.

So What Does This Mean For You?

About 6 years ago I realized I wanted to reach people beyond my local area. This vision of having guitar students all over the world inspired me to converting my already successful system into an online course.

My staff used to tease me about my first videos. They said they looked like “ransom” videos made in someone’s basement.

Well, it’s been years now and I’ve gotten better. Much better! After years of trial and error, beta testing and refinement I’ve created an extremely effective online course to teach you step-by-step the fundamentals of playing real guitar.

Best Guitar Lessons Online

The depiction of physical DVDs is for illustration only. I create online courses because I can deliver them quickly, add updates easily and I don’t have to charge you for shipping. I’ve made most the lessons (over 200 videos, workbook, audios and growing) downloadable so you can put them in your computer if you have a slower Internet access.

Is This Different From Other Online Lessons?

Today there are many websites offering online lessons, but very few are developed using sound learning principles by an expert in the field, both playing the guitar and creating teaching systems.

In addition I’ve had the opportunity interview hundreds of students at my music school and use that information to refine my teaching system over a period of 20 years. It is based on timeless principles and will give you the ability to learn most any style of music you want as well as create your own music.

Here are some other things that make this course unique among both on and offline lessons.

  • Step By Step Easy To Follow Lessons – This step-by-step approach will give you the confidence that you need to keep going, and by preparing you for more difficult techniques before they come up you’ll gain a sense of accomplishment. Learning the right things in the right order will get you there faster.
  • Multiple Activities And Many Ways to Learn – By giving you a variety of activities we’ll keep it interesting and make it fun. In addition, because people have different learning styles you’ll find some activities easier than others and you’ll have several opportunities to learn.
  • A Solid Foundation And Real Guitar Playing Skills – You’ll have a solid foundation in the fundamentals so you’ll have the flexibility to play the music you want to play and not depend on others to spoon feed you song after song. In fact, over time, you’ll be able to create your own songs.
  • True Multi-Media Lessons – Each lesson is a multimedia presentation including a combination of videos, audio, downloads and written instruction designed to build on previous lessons.
  • Over 172 Videos (and growing) – Close ups of the important points, broken down to bite size steps and integrating tips that will make learning faster and easier.
  • A Systematic, Complete Approach – As simple as climbing a ladder – just put one foot after another. Includes a complete program including chords, strums, note reading, theory, songs, patterns and much more.
  • Based On the Starland Guitar System – Lessons are based on the time tested Starland Guitar System which has been used successfully with thousands of students and has been refined over a period of 20 years.
  • Everything you need to really learn to play guitar AND enjoy the process.

Your lessons are fantastic!

Your lessons are fantastic! Basic stuff that no one else seems to want their students to know. I could not be happier to be one of your students, especially as a 68 year old total beginner with no known musical talent.

Your lessons are fantastic!

It’s No Harder Than Climbing A Ladder

Okay, there’s something I need to tell you. There really isn’t a “quick and easy” approach to playing guitar, and if you’re looking for a bunch of cool licks or how to play a few current popular songs you’re in the wrong place.

But if you are not afraid of a little work and persistence to develop a long-lasting skill that will add joy and excitement to your life, you are going to love this power packed step-by-step course.

And just to be clear, even though this is not some overnight, learn quick scheme, it’s not hard either. No harder than climbing a ladder – JUST PUT ONE FOOT AFTER ANOTHER.

I’ve been there, and I have the skills, experience and desire to lead the way. You won’t have to wonder what is the best thing to practice or if you’re spending time doing it wrong like I did when I first started out, or fumble around like many who learn on their own or from books, videos and well-meaning friends.
