Most guitar teachers ask what songs you want to learn, then teach you how to play them without any real strategy.

In your first FREE introductory guitar lesson,  I’ll assess your current skills and challenges and help you define what you eventually want to achieve on guitar. Then I’ll strategically design a personalized lesson plan.

I focus specifically on helping you improve in areas that are holding you back. I ONLY show you things that directly relate to what you want to learn.

I keep a detailed log of everything I teach you and periodically record your guitar playing to track your progress and refine your personalized strategy.

I give you lesson materials to use at home after your guitar lesson with me. You can review them anytime you want!

If you have questions or problems between lessons, get online support anytime during the week.

Save time practicing with a personalised practice schedule. Each week we’ll refine your practice schedule so you’re only working on the most important things.

“…taking lessons with Guy Onraet over the last year has completely transformed my playing.”

“…Guy Onraet is a great musician, a great teacher and a real pleasure to spend time with.”

“…there is not a better and more enjoyable way to do it than by being taught by Guy Onreat.”

i used to struggle, just like you

When you learn guitar on your own, it can be frustrating and time-consuming. When I first started out playing guitar, I believed I could learn better on my own than with a teacher. I thought lessons would limit my creativity, and I would have to remember mountains of useless stuff.

Years (and thousands of frustrating hours) later, I got my first guitar teacher, and in the first guitar lesson I learned more than I ever did in all those years combined! Soon my guitar playing began to improve exponentially. And you don’t have to waste all that time like I did.

Contact me today for your first FREE introductory guitar lesson, and let’s talk about how you can make the fastest possible progress.
