- 90% Chance of failure
SHOCKING FACT: You've got 90% chance of failure if you study with the wrong teacher
Here, are the true facts: 90% of complete beginners give up playing the guitar after barely 4 months of learning.
If you're still playing after 4 months (from being a complete beginner), then you already belong to the top 10% of aspiring guitarists.
Out of the 10% remaining, only a few will take their playing beyond learning a few chords and only 2% (out of the initial 100) will then
proceed to intermediate concepts such as improvising or playing substitute chords.
Very very few (less than 1%) will even get into playing advanced guitar solos, intricate harmonies, special techniques and advanced chords.
What makes the difference between a guitarist who never gets past struggling to strum two open chords and a guitarist who has a solid command of his or her instrument?
Answer: It's not their talent or ability; It's the skill and competency level of their instructor and mentor. THAT is the key element.

Our head guitar teacher has personally studied with some of the greatest guitar mentors on this planet including the late Johnny Fourie (John Mclaughlin's friend and colleague), Abri Jordaan (one of the greatest classical guitar teachers) and other music legends.
He is familiar with rock, jazz and classical guitar styles and have excelled at a world class level in all three styles. He is also remarkably well known for his ability on touch guitar. He can play and improvise fluently in standard tuning as well as his "top-secret" guitar tuning in touch guitar.
He has successfully taught guitarists from the age of 15 including guitarists who have now gone to develop their own music schools.
He knows how to turn you into the extraordinary guitarist YOU deserve to be!
