What about the Royal Conservatory of Music curriculum?
We also prepare students to earn certificates for classical guitar from the Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM). A Certificate of Achievement can be earned by completing practical examinations at RCM.
"There are many online guitar courses however nothing can replace an introductory hands on guitar lesson with Julian. I was never able to play a complete song past the third fret and within a few weeks I learned to play "Blackbird" and "Here comes the sun. Julian worked out the most optimal fingering and I learned how to read tab music in just one lesson. An introductory lesson is a great way to start learning guitar. Julian makes the lessons fun and enjoyable from the first strum of the strings. He inspires you to practice and improve on every note played. As you play more songs your confidence level increases and you become addicted to playing guitar. I highly recommend iPickGuitar as I have experienced first hand how much I have improved from playing a few chords up the neck of the guitar to full songs - it is a totally awesome experience and I recommend it to others!! There is nothing more fulfilling than achieving your dream of playing guitar."

Christine P. - Rock Guitar Student
"I have been taking lessons with Julian for a couple of months now, and i have been VERY impressed. Julian is kind, talented and patient. He used a step by step process and makes sure i am able to grasp one concept before moving on to the next. I have always wanted to learn to play the guitar and now, as an adult, I am finally making the time to do so. I have been so happy with the lessons, that i have now signed up my children for lessons too. They have met Julian and are very excited to start their lessons in August. I highly recommend iPickGuitar”
Jennifer G. - Pop and Rock Guitar Student
"I have been learning guitar by myself for a while but felt that I was never on the right track. iPickGuitar customized the lessons to fit my skills and weaknesses. Now I am starting to put everything together, things I learned in the part and stuff I learned in my lessons. My girlfriend is taking lessons with iPickGuitar as well. She enjoys it a lot too. Now we have one more thing in common at home. Now the lessons are the most exciting thing we look forward to every week."
Vincent W. - Rock Guitar Student
"Julian has been teaching me guitar for over 4 years. The way he teaches is very unique. When I am having difficulties with technique, he is always available to instruct me. The lessons are fun and educational at the same time. I think that he is a great teacher and I will happily continue to be his student for years to come as I am progressing through the RCM curriculum. "
