... Jamie's work is so incredibly unique and necessary. As a professional musician and music educator, I'm living proof that what Jamie teaches is completely valid, and it works!
If someone only wants to learn the chords of a song or the scales on a guitar neck, geez they don't need to pay me or any other teacher. Use google and find that info for free. But "how" to play these things? Much different story, and Jamie is THE master at this!
It's free, no email address required.

I look around at the state of instruction for guitar, and I only find one person out of all guitar educators, who bases instruction on the science of producing sound, the biomechanics of doing it, and the neurology of learning to do it well.
Jamie Andreas, of course. I just don't understand how out of 7 billion of us, only one has recognized the need to understand how our bodies and brains work, and how to apply that to playing and teaching guitar.
Learning to play guitar does not have to be difficult. Learning to play guitar does not have to be a hit-or-miss affair, works for some, not for others. There is an absolutely sure fire way of training your fingers and yourself to be as good a guitar player as you want to be and are willing to work for.
I have created that method and have been proving it works in the 47 years I have been teaching guitar.
I call this method "The Principles of Correct Practice For Guitar". It has created thousands of good (and many great) guitar players, many who had given up any hope of learning after trying every other guitar method and lesson out there.
Hi, my name is Jamie Andreas.
I started playing guitar at age 14, and teaching at 17. In my first two years of teaching, I was troubled that so many students just didn't "get it", they just couldn't get their fingers to do what my fingers found easy to do. I was so upset at taking people's money and not delivering results that I quit teaching guitar. Until...
A few years later, I began to take the mystery out of learning guitar. I studied the science of motor control learning, how muscles learn movements. I studied anatomy. I went back to teaching guitar with a whole new viewpoint. I experimented with my methods.
I developed a powerful system for learning guitar that worked for everyone who used it. It didn't matter what style of music, or what the age or background of the student. If you have fingers, and follow my methods, you will become a good guitar player.
