The Right Place... the right time. That’s where you find yourself right now, if you’re a Beginning Guitar Player.

Why The Right Info Is So Important

The very Beginning stage of learning Guitar is by far the most important. It takes a watchful eye for detail, an understanding of the many pitfalls that Beginners face, and a clear understanding of the big picture (i.e. what to focus on), in order to make the most of this initial learning window.

Unfortunately, most instructors, books, and courses don’t take Beginners seriously. That’s not the case here. Welcome to Metal Guitar Academy. You simply will not find anything quite like this, anywhere else.

What Students Say

"In addition to being an amazing and talented guitar player, Brett is also an excellent teacher. I have a background in music after playing another instrument for many years. However, I learned so much more with Brett, especially with regards to music theory."
Bill P.
"Brett has undoubtedly helped me bring my guitar playing and knowledge of music to a new level."
Michael N.
"Had no clue what I was doing and no musical talent whatsoever. I can now play songs that I have always wanted to as well as playing over backtracks. Could not think of anyone else I rather take lessons from. My wife says it actually sounds like music. Thanks for everything Brett."
Fred E.
"Brett is an awesome teacher."
Kevin M.
"The amount of progress I have made as a guitarist and musician in general is astounding. Brett is a great role model for me as a musician. I came to him looking to develop and hone my skills on electric and acoustic guitar. He's highly knowledgeable and proficient in nearly every style of playing that you can think of (such as jazz, rock, metal, classical, blues, etc.) and he will provide you with a strong foundation to play anything your heart desires."
