Structured Lessons for Real Progress

Our course lessons build on each other, giving you a sound foundation of practical guitar skills
you'll use to play the music you love.
There is only one secret to learning to play guitar: practice.
Most other courses give you repetitive practice drills, which get boring very quickly. This is why most beginner guitarists fail...
But there is a better way to practice: through learning awesome songs!
Playing real songs is an integral part of the courses on TheGuitarLesson.com, which keeps your practice sessions fun, rewarding, and motivating.
As a beginner guitarist, you need direction and guidance on how to start learning guitar, and what to practice.
The beginner guitar course at TheGuitarLesson.com was created based on Tom Fontana's 20+ years of teaching experience.
It is designed to teach the practical skills you'll need to build on as you get better with each day of practice.
You don't need to start learning guitar music theory on day 1... but it is useful down the line if you want to become a musician.
Each lesson on TheGuitarLesson.com sprinkles in the music theory relevant to the given song, so you apply it in practice right at the offset.
This natural, practical form of learning theory will stay engraved in your brain since you learn it through using it in a real song.
