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 stopped teaching these webcam guitar lessons a long time ago if they weren't ultra-effective.
Now, you as a budding guitarist can effectively learn and play your favorite songs and styles super quickly - without having to leave the house.
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, and we've made it super easy for you to try it for yourself here today so you can see how powerful this opportunity is for your guitar playing and for your life!
We get our computers connected together for seamless video calls using the best software and get you setup on an online document (for your tabs, chords, tasks, homework etc...). We utilize the best of techology AND real-person interaction so you'll be fully supported on your musical journey! Plus, there's the integration of instant messaging so, you'll be able to message your instructor through the app in-between lessons for extra help, clarification or feedback when you need it!
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?
After studying "Ear Training" at Berklee, there's not a thing that can slip by, but visually speaking, we'll first get you setup on a 30 min 'meet and greet' call beforehand to get so 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.
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.

Ready for a clean, organized way to learn guitar?
Now, for the written material (chord and scale charts, tabs) this really is huge improvement...
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 you'll be able to access it on any one of your devices, at any time.
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 should consider the quality of the teacher over the delivery method. Not every guitar teacher is equal (in fact, unfortunately many guitar teachers out there are not very good).
So here's the thing: You can take lessons with our company, Campfire Guitar Star and get access to an educated, experienced, pro guitar teacher from home. You'll get connected to a teacher who is patient, supportive, easy to hang out with, and they'll passionately teach you your favorite music. Or, the alternative would look something like this:
You roll the dice on a local, "Regular-Joe" guitar teacher, and cross your fingers that their going to be a good teacher. Then, you travel across town to get to them - packing up, battling traffic, parking and so on - usually taking an additional hour of your time… You sit down, flustered and get a lack-luster, overly-expensive guitar lesson... Sounds tiresome, doesn't it? How sustatinable is this?
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 :)

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. If you play your favourite jams, that's going to motivate you all while you have a blast!

"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"
-Dana P (Canada)
"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 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."
-Dan F (Canada)
I was a total beginner (I'm 46) and have been taking lessons from these guys for almost a year. Online 1:1 lessons really work. Mike got me playing stuff that I never thought would be possible. Having a busy work schedule with a family - I don’t have to scramble loading gear to travel for lessons.
Mike is always there via IM or email whenever I have a question between lessons. That way I'm not stuck on something where I would have to wait until our next lesson. Very convenient!
These guys ROCK and you should try them out if you’re serious about becoming a better player. - Steve H (USA)
And Even More Happy Students...
Picking up a guitar for the first time about one year ago I stumbled about Will and Mike and definitely I came a long way with Mikes help. We went even further and enrolled my 6 year old son as well to take lessons with Mike and here as well we note good progress. Online lessons are practical and do not stand back to any normal one on one study. - Juergen (Thailand)
If you're like me you are always you're harshest critics. The online lessons with Mike give me the encouragement and guidance to keep improving. - Jim (Australia)
I love my online lessons with Mike. I play with confidence now that I did not have before. I play in two different in 2 different worship bands. I will be opening for a John Tibbs. I'll also be playing lead and rhythm for Katy Kinard next month. Get some lessons with Mike build your confidence, Build Your Arsenal, and get out and play - Ted P (USA)
I've been taking lessons from Mike B for about 6 months and they have been very effective. I don't think it's as important to be sitting in the same room with someone as it is to be working with a teacher that's committed to your learning. That's Mike. Every lesson he has new material for me to work on. The way the lesson is managed works quite well with a Skype session and a shared Google doc. I have taken lessons from two different people in person and those lessons weren't as effective to my development as my sessions online with Mike B.- Mike F (USA)
