Nick really takes the time to understand each student’s unique needs and abilities. He is able to identify what’s holding me back, get to the root of the problem, and get me motivated to reach my goals. - Ruben S.


Experiencing frustration as a guitarist is common, but it doesn’t have to be that way. If you’re struggling or confused, it doesn’t mean you don’t have the ability to become better, it means you have not been given the right strategy or solution to help overcome whatever it is that hinders you. I’ve helped a lot of guitar players overcome their problems and have the know how to help you, too. You do not have to continue to struggle week after week, month after month, year after year. No matter how many problems you’re experiencing, you can become the kind of guitar player you dream of.

I am very happy with the level of playing I was able to achieve and the new techniques that I learned. I highly recommend Nick to anyone interested in learning guitar. - Jeanine T.

I want to see you become the kind of guitarist you want to be. Whether you just picked up the guitar for the first time or you’ve been playing for years, my commitment is to help you achieve your goals. I’ve helped a lot of people over the past 11 years and have the know how to help you:

  • Improve 3-5 times faster than learning alone or with a typical teacher  
  • Avoid a lot of frustration
  • Fix common mistakes
  • Rid yourself of bad habits
  • Solve any playing problem
  • Set goals and achieve them
  • Learn how to practice effectively so you make maximum progress possible
  • Get and stay motivated to achieve more in less time
  • Build confidence in your ability
  • Have a lot of fun!

How I Will Help YOU Get Maximum Results

It’s no wonder that my students who apply themselves make much faster progress than guitarists who are learning on their own or through other conventional methods. Here are some of the reasons my students improve so fast:

  • Effective Practicing – students learn not only what they should practice, but how they should practice, what they should do when they practice, and are given specific strategies for the material they’re working on. When I was taking guitar lessons at the age of 15, I was never given specific strategies, tips or any kind of guidance on maximizing results. That’s one reason why you’ll know exactly what you need to do with the material and concepts being taught – I don’t want you struggling like I did for so many years.
  • 3 Dimensional Learning – Most people learn guitar in a 1 dimensional way. Chords come first, then some songs, then some riffs, then maybe scale, etc. Everything is done one at a time in a slow, logical way until the student gains some level of proficiency in that single area. This sounds logical, but it is the slow way to learn. With the 3 DimensiGuitar playeronal method I use, the you’ll develop multiple areas of your guitar playing at the same time, making progress faster, easier and a lot more fun! This is one of the reasons why I say you can learn 3-5 times faster than on your own or with a typical teacher.
  • Integration – By learning how to integrate everything you’re learning you become much better, much faster. You won’t just learn a scale or chord or technique – you’ll learn how to use that scale, chord or technique in many different playing situations and how to integrate multiple skills together while you practice. Integration is what makes a guitar player “complete.” By integrating what you’re learning, you avoid the problem that comes up with many guitarists who have been playing for years – they know a lot, but don’t know how to use any of it in a way that a coherent, practical and that sounds amazing. It’s not enough to learn “stuff.” You’ll learn all the “stuff” and how all of that works together so you can express yourself, be creative, and feel satisfied when you play.
  • Setting and Achieving Goals – Setting goals is critical to your success as a guitar player. In fact, having clearly defined goals is one of the most important things you can do, and I will help you not only set long term goals, but short, measurable goals as well so you can see yourself improve on a regular basis. Having a clear goal in mind will help you focus your practice time so you make the most progress possible, get results, and become more fulfilled and dynamic as a guitar player.
  • Staying Motivated – If you’re not motivated to play, you’re not going to make much progress. In your lessons you’ll learn how to overcome the lack of motivation that sometimes creeps in by helping you see the progress you’ve made and the possibilities that lie ahead. You’ll learn what kind of mindset it takes to overcome the challenges of learning guitar and why your mentality is so powerful. You’ll learn what sets the great guitar players apart from those who languish and quit, and why natural talent has very little to do with achieving your goals, no matter what they are.CallToAction
