Rolande Lacombe from North Bay, Canada: "I started playing guitar at the age of 15. I self taught with books I purchased and watching others play, as I never had the opportunity to attend classes. When I joined Guitar Coaching Online, little did I know the vast learning experience it would provide me. The well organized course presents valuable basic lessons and builds on technique, theory, and songs, all in fun and engaging presentations. With a very busy retired lifestyle, I really appreciate the flexibility to study at my own pace, within my personal schedule. The actual classes are part of a roadmap of stages in which a student expands basic knowledge to more complex comprehension. I truly feel more confident in my singer/songwriter skills as I continually improve on my playing. Thanks Sean for the time you dedicate to this group. I, for one, really am thankful."

Rachel Lockhart from Kitchener, Canada"I have loved using Guitar Coaching Online! I have a music background but am a total beginner on the guitar. The lessons have been easy to follow and so helpful. I am learning chords with ease and I look forward to moving on to new, more complex lessons. Guitar Coaching Online truly is a great way to learn this instrument!"

Mariusz Lewandowski from West Yorkshire, UK"Hi Sean, when the opportunity to join the program occurred, it was an easy decision to make. Although I do not consider myself a total beginner (used to play a few riffs when was in high school, we had a band hahaha with couple of mates ) I found this course extremely helpful on many levels. I could catch up with theory, remind myself the chords, learn cool licks and songs which I would probably never try playing myself. From my point of view learning online is very convenient because of irregular working hours. I know I will not lose a thing and be able to catch up with the new stuff whenever I have time. I also think the website itself is well organised, divided in categories so I could jump on the subject I think needs practise at the time. Oh... and one more thing, once I joined the course I have decided to get myself an acoustic guitar (have an electric one already) which turned out to be a great decision hehehe. Thanks for being there for all of us guitar freaks."
