Hello, my name is Esther.

Is this the guitar course for you? Find out by answering these 5 simple questions:

  • Are You an Absolute Beginner Guitarist? You want to learn, but you are a true beginner and need simple and easy-to-follow steps to get you started?
  • Are You Frustrated with Free YouTube Clips? Have you tried to follow these, but found they go too fast and don't have sheets or a clear system to follow? Do you worry that you're not learning the correct technique? Do you end up feeling overwhelmed and give up?
  • Do You Want Fast Results? Do you need quick results to motivate you to continue?
  • Do You Want Easy Lessons? Have you ever thought learning to play guitar is just too hard? Do you crave a VERY easy to follow, step-by-step system that is guaranteed to get you results and is tailored to true beginners?
  • Do You Find In-Person Lessons Expensive & Inconvenient? Do you feel learning from a 1-on-1 teacher takes too much money and time (time to travel there, or to clean your house for their arrival). Add to this the inflexibility of appointments and lack of support between the lessons; is it all too hard?

If you answered yes to any of the above, I'm excited to say, Step-by-Step Guitar lessons is just what you’ve been looking for!

  • Progressive Play-Along Tracks. Unlike other courses, Step-by-step guitar lessons give you play-along tracks that emulate what it is like to have a patient, in-person teacher. The play-alongs start with slower speeds and big breaks between chord changes, so you have time to change chords. Because beginners need time.

    “Esther has been the most fantastic, inspiring guitar teacher.” - From Niki Marrebell

    “I would highly recommend Esther as a top-class guitar tutor to anyone.” - From Jo Bone

    “Esther has taught me everything I know about guitar and she is really kind and helpful.” - From Harry Robinson

    “You’ve done an amazing job teaching Alice guitar. Thanks for being there with her every step of the way.” - From Sally O'Brian

    “Thank you so much for helping me. You’ve taught me more than just how to play guitar.” - From Finley Jones.


    Lots of Content - Including the 122 play-along tracks and the many video lessons, the equivalent one-on-one lesson teaching time of this course would normally cost upwards of $3000, depending on how fast or slow you are at learning. This course only costs the equivalent of 2 x one-on-one lessons!

    If This Course Was Taught in Person - There would be no play-along tracks to practice between lessons, and no bonus lessons. You would also have to learn at a fixed time. And for the price of 2 lessons, you’d learn nowhere near what this course will be teaching you!

    No Travel Costs – Also, if I was to teach you this course in person, you would need to calculate the travel time and costs, and if you don’t live in Melbourne Australia, this might be quite an investment! ;-). This course is the most convenient way to learn, because you get lifetime access to a course you can learn at any time and in any place.

    Saves You Time & MoneyBasically, with this course, I will be saving you lots of time, no more hours spent surfing the web, wondering what and how to learn, and making rookie mistakes and then spending years trying to un-learn bad body habits. I will give you a fast-track method to successful guitar playing, which in the end will save you both time and money!

    So considering all this, lets have one more quick overview of what you will be receiving with this step-by-step guitar course for absolute beginners...

    • Lifetime access – learn at your own pace.
    • Downloadable mp3s of play-alongs at different speeds with gaps between chords that progress as you do, in both singing and non-singing versions.
    • Guaranteed fastest method to play guitar, with the training wheels method. You get instant access to both versions of the course, with or without the training wheels, so you can do either or both.
    • Clear explanation videos with various forms of information for all learners; text, visual and colour-coded.
    • Downloadable charts and songs.
    • The equivalent of many one-on-one lessons with no need to travel!
    • Perfect overview of techniques and styles for beginners. These are the exact lessons I’d normally do with all absolute beginner students. They give a taste of various styles to help you realise what kind of guitarist you’d like to become.
    • 6 Bonus Lessons.
    • Simple quizzes to assess your learning.
    • Certificate of Completion.
    • A learning platform that works on all devices, tracks and saves your progress and is extremely user-friendly.
    • 100% risk-free with a full, no questions asked, money back guarantee within 30 days.

    This is all yours, for a one-off payment that is the equivalent of just 2 x 1hr one-on-one, in-person lessons, yet you receive more like 50+ lessons, or you can also pay over 12 months in instalments - yet you can keep the course forever! and if you try it and don't like it you can have your full 100% money back in the first 30 days so there is no risk!

    So It’s Time to Choose Your Own Adventure

    Door 1, Door 2 or Door 3?

    I now present you with a choice; you know you want to learn guitar but there are a few ways to achieve this. Each way has pros and cons - and some ways you will get your desired results much faster and more joyously. So which of the following doors do you want to walk though?

    The 3 Doors

    RED DOOR 1 - Navigate through the labyrinth of YouTube! You could try to teach yourself, and run the risk of extreme confusion in the chaos of all the free YouTube things. Most people end up feeling lost and overwhelmed, spending hours upon hours trying to work it all out, unaware if they’re skipping vital techniques or setting up bad body memory habits, only then to give up due to poor progress, muddy chord sounds and unclear direction. And, if time is money, the amount of time you will spend just searching for what you think may be the right lessons, will cost you lots!

    YELLOW DOOR 2 - The expense & inconvenience of private lessons! You could get a private teacher, but you will have the inconvenience of travelling or having them at your place, and, for the amount of money you spend, you’ll get no support at home, no play-along tracks, and you won’t have the flexibility of learning when you want to learn. You may not even like their teaching style and you can’t get your money back!

    OR GO THROUGH GREEN DOOR 03 - The easiest, fastest, most convenient way to learn guitar. Get instant, no-risk, lifetime access, to a clear, step-by-step system, using all my years of knowledge. You can skip ahead to successful guitar playing, following the fastest method for absolute beginners to start playing guitar - guaranteed, knowing you are learning proper technique. And this course comes with so many extras and bonuses, I’m confident you’ll love it!

    So are you ready? You can start this very minute! It’s time to embark upon the positively life-changing journey of becoming a guitarist!

    Take my hand, and I will help guide you, step-by-step.

    All you need to do is scroll down, choose your payment option and Click ENROL and you will get Instant Access!

    I look forward to seeing you on the inside!

    Love Esther x

    - Your loyal & devoted guitar teacher. There with you every step of the way! :-)

Frequently Asked Questions

Can Children Do This Course?
Yes! Absolutely. In fact, I think it is a great bonding time with your child, as you help them go through it. Not to mention the time and money you will save by not going to private lessons. I have taught children as young as 5, the material in this course, although younger ones will require an adult to monitor and guide them through to ensure they understand the correct technique and how to set up the digital practice diary etc. I would highly recommend the Fast-Track version of the course, as it was first created for children to help them to achieve fast results. The only thing children won't be allowed to do is join the exclusive Facebook group due to Facebook regulations, but parents can be part of our group on their child's behalf and let the community know how their child is developing. Parents can also ask questions in the live Q&A, if they need more guidance with helping their children learn.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
Do you offer "in-person" lessons over Skype?
I no longer do in-person lessons, as I have my hands full building the next levels of the course and distributing this one. I do, however, give support in regular Q&A sessions in our Exclusive Facebook Group. You will receive access to this after signing-up.
I don't own a guitar yet - can I still do this course?
It is actually even better if you don't yet own a guitar as buying your first guitar is a very important step. I have included a lesson on that very subject! I will give you the exact advice needed before buying your first guitar!
When does the course start and finish?
The course starts now and never ends! It is a completely self-paced online course - you decide when you start and when you finish.
Who is this course for?
I built this course for absolute beginners; those who have never played any guitar at all, and who need lessons paced for true newbies, with a good overview of styles and the instrument. This course will be good for you if you only know how to play 2 or 3 chords, and it’s been years since you picked up a guitar, as it will start you back on the right track, in a structured way. If you can already play all the basic open chords easily, know all the string names, can read TAB, can play a few scales etc, and are already quite comfortable with the instrument, I'd suggest waiting until Level 2 of beginner guitar lessons comes out, because you may be too advanced for this course.
I am not musical at all, will I be able to learn guitar?
I believe we are all musical, and some of us have just had more time away from music than others. From the moment you grew inside your mother and heard her beating heart, and heard the vibrations of her voice, you had your first rhythm and melody experience. It may just be that it has been some time, and you've forgotten that pulse and need reminding of the innate rhythm we all have within us. I have taught children as young as 5, to people in their 80s, who have never before touched the instrument, how to play the guitar. I have crafted this course specifically for absolute beginners so that you can develop as fast as you can and wish to. This simple and unique system makes guitar-playing achievable for anyone!
What if I am unhappy with the course?
I would never want you to be unhappy! If you are dissatisfied with your purchase, contact me within the first 30 days and I will give you a full refund.
Why should I learn how to play the guitar?
