We've been teaching students all over the world since 2012 over webcam. Since then, our internet connections have only gotten faster and people are communicating over video-calls more regularly. Also, learning online is becoming more of the norm with universities and even doctors are working over webcam...So why not learn guitar too?
Trust me when I say that we would have shut these webcam lessons down a long time ago if they weren't ultra-effective (and maybe the best way for someone to learn guitar).
As you know, the convenience factor is unbeatable...
But can we actually teach effectively online? The short answer is YES.
Due to years of professional ear training and because we have taught over 1000 students 1-on-1 since 2006, we can see and hear exactly what's going on - webcams do NOT block us from effectively teaching you guitar, whatsoever.
We've set out to make an easy-to-access system where a passionate music lover and guitar fan (like yourself!) can connect to a pro guitar coach through from the comfort of your own home. It works so well, you've just have to try it for yourself so you can see how powerful this opportunity is for your guitar playing and for your life!
Well, they work really well! But more specifically, we use a Google based video-call app called "Hangouts". It connects our computers together for seamless video calls. Plus there's the integration of instant messaging and an online document system so you'll be fully supported on your musical journey! Also, you'll be able to message your instructor through the app in-between lessons.
How are you supposed to show me things on the guitar and see what I’m doing and playing without being in the same room?
Today, I'm suggesting you try 2 sessions. We'll get you setup in a way where you can see me, and I can see you. Students are amazed as to how much we can see and hear what you're doing (whether you're playing something right or wrong! ;) ).
Our video signal is through a HD webcam. We can get close up angles and you'll be able to see exactly what's going on at all times.
Additionally, we use an online document to keep track of your scales, chords, tabs, songs and tasks. This offers an additional layer of organization and communication that is a huge upgrade from the 'pen & paper' method.

The Document System:
Now, for the written material - this really blows pen+paper out of the water...
We use an online, collaborative document that you’ll have up at the same time as your lesson that instantly updates as your teacher types and uses their mouse so you can see the chords and riffs that you’re being taught.
Also, this customized guitar document is dated so it’s super organized with all your tabs, scales, chord charts, and practice routines. It’s also easily printable and available on all devices.
You’ll always know exactly what to practice. You can practice hard in-between lessons on all the right songs, techniques and theory that will advance your skills in the fastest way possible.
Are you asking: "If I’m going to invest and pay for guitar lessons, shouldn't I take them from a person in the same room as me - not over webcam?"
You can take lessons with our company, Campfire Guitar Star and get access to an educated, experienced, pro guitar teacher from home or...
The alternative would look something like this: You roll the dice on a local, "Regular-Joe" guitar teacher, and cross your fingers that he’s going to be a good teacher (someone who is patient, supportive, easy to hang out with, and they'll passionately teach you your favourite music and so on...). Of course, you have to travel across town to get to them - packing up, traffic, parking and so on - usually taking an additional hour of your time…
So here’s the thing - You can roll the dice, cross your fingers and spend extra time and money traveling - or you can stay at home, save time, and energy and book 2 sessions right here today and get access to an educated, experienced, pro guitar teacher from home. We want to make this guitar thing easy for you :)
Discover our "10 Song System" and How We'll Build a Customized Guitar Plan For You
Our Teaching Philosophy In a Nutshell:
We want to push you just as hard as you need to be pushed.
Yes, we will encourage you to practice and help you stay accountable, but we're also connecting because music is fun...and our lessons are fun!
We ask that you assemble a list of 10 songs. Not just any 10 songs... Make this list the most inspiring riffs, chords, songs and solos that you know.
Why do we get you to do this?
This helps us create a customized guitar plan for you where we'll show you the techniques, theory, magic and mystery behind all your favourite music.
Certainly, we will show you all our proprietary systems, theory, chords and scales...
But we also want to focus on you reaching your goals.
This is why we are very interested in the music that you like because if you play your favourite jams, that's going to motivate you to keep on going all while having a blast!
How Do I Become A Campfire Guitar Star 1-on-1 Student?
Now, this is huge: Today, you can book 2 sessions each lasting an hour each - so you'll get 2 hours total working 1-on-1 with a pro guitar coach for just 1-payment of $59.
To book this session: Click on any of the buttons on this page to sign up for 2 guitar sessions. Next, we’ll get you booked in our easy calendar - we can do this over the phone or over email.
After we're connected on the phone and through email, we get established on Google Hangouts - you'll be tied into a "text message" like service that syncs with your computer and the app on your phone (even if you’re totally computer illiterate - this process is easy and we offer a lot of support, anytime you need it).
After these 2 orientation sessions... You'll probably want to do some more lessons and continue on ths path. Yup! Be prepared to get hooked! If so, you can continue at a weekly rate of $59/week which includes a ton of bonuses and extra lesson time (check out more info on our bonuses and 110% money back guarantee below).
How Much Do The Lessons Cost?
Normally lessons are $75/hr. During this promo week, by booking 2 sessions at $59 today, you can lock in a lower weekly rate at $59/week!
We are on the 'higher end' of guitar lessons as this is a reflection of our Berklee education and our experience teaching thousands of students.
However - this pricepoint is completely comparable to the 'street price' of guitar lessons that you'll find in cities in North America.
Just follow the directions on this page, make that payment of $59 for the 2 sessions and you're all set to go at a discounted rate.
Huge Bonuses Included When You Become a 1-on-1 Student:
Bonus #1 (valued at $600): As an included bonus, we have 5, full length, DVD style courses valued at $600. I won’t go into in too much detail right now, but the course names are pretty self-explanatory - you get access to “Lead Guitar Star”, “Acoustic Guitar Star”, “Blues Guitar Star”, “The Ultimate 1960s Rock Guitar Song Collection” and our Beginner course “5 Minute Guitar”.
This is over 60 hours of premium video content that’s available for members only and you’ll have access to our entire library for as long as you take 1-on-1 lessons with us!
(NOTE: have you already bought one or more of these programs? You can apply ANY Campire Guitar Star investment toward 1-on-1 lessons! (ex: You bought our Blues program at $97 - you will be able to apply $97 to 1-on-1 sessions AND keep access to the program)
Bonus #2: Get Access To Your Guitar Teacher In-Between Sessions:
Because you're tied in on an instant messaging, "text message" like conversation, you can ask questions, send in videos and ask for feedback and also be tied in for more general things like scheduling and more. This is like having 24/7 access to your guitar coach!
Bonus #3: There is NO cancellation policy
Did something come up in your life and you need to reschedule your lesson? No problem. We help our busy students out and have completely lifted our cancellation policy. This means you don't get charged for missed lessons and you can take sessions when they're convenient for you!
Bonus #4: Crystal clear billing - and pay AFTER you've taken your sessions.
If you'd like to continue 1-on-1 lessons after this initial x2 lessons for $59 - We will set you up for billing, only AFTER you take your lessons. This ensures you get a crystal clear breakdown and billing for any lessons you take.
For example: Say you start taking lessons next month and you take lessons on the 4th, the 13th and the 27th. On the last day of the month, you're sent an invoice that shows those dates and your total and only then would you pay for those sessions (we also have auto-billing capabilities which means you don't have to manually enter your card info every time)
Bonus #5: Apply Any Campfire Guitar Star Investment As a "coupon" toward 1-on-1 lessons
You can apply ANY past Campire Guitar Star purchase investment toward 1-on-1 lessons! (ex: You bought our Blues program at $97 - you will be able to apply $97 to 1-on-1 sessions AND keep access to the program!)
If you move forward with lessons after this introductory 2-lesson offer, you’re covered these guarantees:
This 1st guarantee: In the uncommon event of any technical difficulties such as connection problems, this would not cut into your lesson time. You never get charged if these unlikely events pop up. We’ll either go past the hour in these cases to make up for any lost time, or schedule make-up time on another day.
Your 2nd guarantee: Go through the package of 2 lessons and if you don't feel like you became a noticeably better guitar player, then just email us and ask to get 110% of your money back and we can part as friends. We don't want to waste your time. We just want to make you a better guitar player!
So Here's The Opportunity Laid Out For You...
Connect with a pro, get covered by this 110% money back guarantee and this $600.00 bonus with the additional bonuses.
And now, you’re left with a choice - you can book your 2 sessions now and get supported by a pro guitar teacher or leave this page and go about doing the DIY, shooting-in-the-dark method.

So take the initiative right now. I know you’ve always wanted to rock the guitar, and here’s the opportunity to do it right and get music and guitar into your life in a huge way.
"Being self employed means that I'm "on call" to my business 24/7. The convenience of my webcam lessons is literally the difference between me being able take regular lessons and not. So for me webcam lessons are PRICELESS in me being able to take consistent steps towards my guitar goals.
Because my webcam lessons are so convenient and that allows me to take them consistently, I've found that the "mystery" of guitar mastery evaporates more and more with each lesson as Mike and Will have a clear, solid answer for ANY questions that I might have.
Don't wait as long as I did to give them a try! I was letting myself get a little "caught up" in my secret fear of technology and my perception of it's lack of "reliability".
I was thinking that if I was gonna be "serious" about lessons, they had to be "in person". That thinking was full of fear and excuses and I'm actually now, with webcam lessons, making more consistent guitar gains than I ever thought possible.
You guys rock and from the bottom of my heart, I want to say a big "thank you!" giving me a consistent, clear and reliable path to achieving the guitar goals I've dreamt about achieving since I was a kid!! I feel the growing sense of CONFIDENCE that I can actually reach my guitar goals"
"Online guitar lessons are just effective as in person one-on-one lessons. I was lucky enough to take lessons with Will and Mike when they lived in the same city as me so I feel confident in saying the lessons online are just as effective, maybe even more effective because you are in the comfort of your own home.
I have become re-inspired to be a better guitar player. The ease of being able to do lessons at home makes me want to pick up the guitar every time I pass by it.
Will and Mike are deadly guitar players that have a natural ability to teach and make it fun! If you want to learn the blues or rock music, they are so perfect. Or if you are just beginning, they will make the whole experience seamless like they did for me."
