Guitar Lessons are not a "One Size Fits All" product ...You are unique...you need, and deserve, a guitar lesson program that is as unique as you are.
Have you ever felt overwhelmed trying to learn guitar?
We know exactly how this feels. You are not alone. We will provide you with the support you need, every step of the way.
You will overcome this feeling of overwhelm and be free to enjoy playing the guitar.
You will experience an innovative learning environment dedicated to integrating everything you learn - all in one program...Your Program.
You will never be alone or left to wonder what to do next. We will be there every step of the way to ensure that you have everything you need to get the most from your guitar program.
Have you ever been frustrated with your rate of progress on the guitar?
What we've found is that the key to making progress on the guitar is to enjoy every step of your learning. This means knowing what to do, when to do it, and how to apply and use what you learn.
Most times, teachers will tell you to simply "practice this" or "practice more", and this is often what causes frustration in the first place. Especially if you are just starting out or are currently stuck not really knowing what to do next. However, learning the guitar is not about quantity of practice or information.
It is about quality.
We will teach you the concepts and skills you need to reach your goals and how to work efficiently to maximize your progress and increase your enjoyment of the learning process.
Have you tried guitar lessons in the past and been disappointed?
We have been there ourselves. And we have found that the reason you are disappointed is that most traditional guitar lessons are delivered in a "One Size Fits All" or "Cookie-Cutter" fashion. That is, each student is given the same material to be studied in a "method" that proceeds in a linear fashion from one concept to the next.
However, the traditional music lesson setting is not always the most effective way to get good results for the guitar student. Why? Because it doesn't focus on YOU, the student.
To get the results you deserve, you need a lesson program that is custom-designed for you. We will work with you to ensure that your lesson program is as unique as you are.
We offer you a wide variety of options to customize a program based on your needs, interests, and goals. We will create a program strategy for you that will grow and evolve with you as you progress on your path. This is a unique benefit that ensures that you get the value, results, and support that you deserve. Your program will always fit your needs, budget and lifestyle.

"The biggest move you can make as a musician is to find a teacher. You need someone who has experience, someone who’s done what you want to do. You need who’s been taught how to play and, more importantly, how to teach. I found all of these things with this program. The most important thing my teacher taught me was how playing music and living your life are inseparable.
~ Joshua R., Student
"Taking electric guitar lessons from GLJ was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Without this program, I can honestly say that I probably would have quit music all together. You don't need luck and you don't need talent. You just need to want it and put forth the effort. So thank you, GLJ, for teaching me that valuable lesson.
~ Ana P, Student
