10 WEEK GUITAR COURSE FOR BEGINNERS
"This is the very first course of study for guitar that actually worked for me. I am inspired! I've been taking lessons since I was a teenager, I've had about a dozen teachers and I've tried so many methods. Finally know what I'm doing and I can really enjoy playing competently now! My understanding of music, my playing techniques, overall skill to improvise, jam and play various styles with a diverse repertoire is so much broader, Thanks for everything Wolfman! I owe you so much thanks, and I love the way I play now!"

The guitar is an artist's palette of sound and expression, which is why no single guitarist sounds exactly like another. But it can be daunting to learn!
You’ve probably seen videos and advertisements for courses and methods to make playing guitar easy. The truth is, no person and no method can instantly turn you into a great guitarist. No matter how many YouTube videos you watch or “magical breakthrough” methods or apps you’ve tried, playing the guitar well is about commitment and dedication.
Throughout my 30+ years of teaching music, I’ve met and taught hundreds of students who had previously tried many guitar learning methods--books, videos, apps, DVDs, and online programs--but not one of them had actually learned how to PLAY. You can pick up a few chord forms or a simple lick or two, but to play--REALLY PLAY--the guitar, you have to commit to a period of dedicated study and practice. This is real work, and there are no shortcuts! HOWEVER, there is an efficient, engaging and productive way to TRANSFORM yourself from beginner to real player!
"Since I started private lessons with Bob Wolfman, my understanding and enjoyment level for playing my guitar have gone through the roof. I'm absolutely blown away at how much I've learned and how quickly I'm still progressing. Perhaps it's not totally polite to say, but my friends and colleagues who've taken lessons for many years complain that they don't play as well as I do now (I started from scratch with Bob only 7 months ago)...so, of course now they all want Wolfman's phone number.”

"Guitar lessons with Bob was a different experience for me than with prior teachers. Instead of spending a lesson watching an instructor figure out a new song that you want to play, you spend it actually learning the guitar, while using a few songs as guides. After my lessons with him I know how to read music, know all the notes on the fretboard, understand the modes of the major scale, and I’m working on ear training to figure out songs on my own."

After lessons with another guitar teacher for 3 years, I realized I still had lots more to learn as a beginner. So, started working with Bob Wolfman last July, and asked him for help with my fundamentals. I supplemented my lessons with Bob with his “ESSENTIAL BASICS for GUITAR”, a 5 lesson E- book and the “10 Week Guitar For Beginners” course. This combination was ideal for me; reading the text, watching and listening to the videos, and Bob’s awesome instruction helped me make a lot of progress. My lessons are fun, very enjoyable and I now fully understand the fundamentals; playing technique, music theory and the “why” of what a guitarist needs to know and apply. I strongly recommend working with Bob on his beginner course to take your guitar playing to the next level, even if you have been playing for a while. You think you know stuff……until you study with Wolfman!

What The Pros Say...
Founding Father & Pioneer of Jazz/Rock Fusion
“Bob Wolfman is a terrific guitarist, but more than that, he is a dynamic musician and an energetic, dedicated educator.”
Grammy Award Nominee / Electric Slide Guitarist Eric Clapton, Eric Johnson, Vince Gil, John Hiatt, Mark Knopfler (Dire Straits)
"When you hear Bob Wolfman, it’s easy to appreciate the connection to his mentor, the late great Larry Coyell. But Bob is his own man with his own story to tell. A highly respected instructor and a great performer, he has inspired decades of dedicated students and audiences alike with taste, tone and bad ass chops."
Five Time Grammy Award Nominee Electric Guitarist
“I jammed with Wolfman this summer and was really impressed with his playing!"
Guitarist recorded/performed with Steely Dan, Brecker Brothers, Billy Joel, Qunicy Jones, Barbara Streisand, Ray Charles, Chaka Khan, Aretha Franklin, David Sanborn, Billy Cobham, and so many more!!
“If one is serious about a life in music then there is no substitute for personalized private instruction. Wolfman's School of Music offers this and so much more. I urge you to look into this environment for learning that Bob has so carefully created.”
I've been studying with Bob for almost 5 years now. I went in to these lessons in a slump, having plateaued in my guitar playing throughout college. Bob helped me identify the areas I was struggling in and we got to work addressing those. We worked our way through the blues until we identified my interest lied in jazz, and have been focusing on jazz theory, improvisation, comping ever since. Outside of the lessons themselves, Bob has encouraged me to play with other musicians and attend jams with professionals. While I still have a ways to go, I'm now able to keep up for the most part, which is something I couldn't honestly say I could do before my lessons. I have a newfound confidence in my guitar playing now, and this is helping me to explore new avenues and try new things in the world of music.
