Totally Guitars

Want to learn, but not sure where to start?

We’re here to help you learn, whether you’re a beginner, an intermediate who has been playing for a few years, or even a lifetime player who might be quite advanced. Learning to play guitar with us will help make a big difference in your ability to learn and have more fun, more speed, and how to get past some of the things that have been holding you back. Here are three reasons to join Totally Guitars...

Access thousands of song lessons

With one of our paid membership programs, you get unlimited access to our continuously growing library of comprehensive, easy to follow guitar lessons, plus tips and techniques that’ll give you the RESULTS you’ve been searching for. Or you can go A’ la carte and select one lesson or a package of songs or theory to get you started, it is all here.

We can create a learning pathway to suit your specific needs

A significant feature we have had since the beginning is Student Reviews. Students upload a video of a work in progress and get expert guidance from the faculty with a video review, it’s like having a teacher with you, but on the song or issue you like. Our pathways program with the KOA club is a flexible teaching plan with a monthly Webinar where each student gets individual direction from the staff.

Our Instructors have created proven teaching techniques that work fast

We’ve put together a team, led by renowned guitarist and master instructor Neil Hogan, of nothing but the most passionate, talented and just plain brilliant teachers on the planet. You’re learning from the best in the industry with proprietary teaching techniques.
