Our Mission

Our mission, here at ThePracticingGuitarist.com, is to provide you with guitar lessons that help you achieve your goals, plain and simple.

How do we do that?

We use the following formula.


  • Specific Focus
  • Measurable Results
  • Achievable Outcomes
  • Realistic Goals
  • Timely Results (Results happen when you expect them to happen)

Why are each of our courses designed to meet each of the criteria above? Because when our practice lacks these key points we experience frustration, stagnation, lack of focus and clarity and a general sense that we are not progressing the way would like to see ourselves progress.

Learning Styles

At ThePracticingGuitarist.com we know that everyone learns differently, so we’ve taken it upon ourselves to take each of our lessons and break them down to their most fundamental level, resulting in the materials being examined from a variety of different angles and perspectives.

Therefore, we see no reason why you should waste your time learning things that won’t immediately make you a better guitarist, and a more musical one at that.

And that is why we are here for you.
