Hello everyone and welcome on my Ace Guitar Course website. I’m delighted to see that you want to improve your skills or learn from scratch to play the guitar. Of course it requires patience and practice. I have been playing guitar for about 12 years now, and when I look back, it’s been quite a ride.
I come from a middle class family in France, and I am basically the sole musician of my family. I have always been interested in music. In fact, I started learning about it when I was 7 years old, when I took piano lessons. I stopped a year after as it turned out I had to join a choir if I was to continue, and as I was a very shy kid… I just decided to stop.
Years later, I finally had my first music equipment, which was a basic DJ station. I was really bad at making music with it, but I loved it, so I kept on playing, and even rapped on the music that I was creating.
Why I Chose To Learn Guitar
I was in High School in France when I first heard someone I knew playing the guitar. A friend had brought his instrument with him, as Summer was approaching and the weather was becoming nicer. The sound of the guitar immediately appealed to me. My friend was not a great guitarist, but he knew what he was doing and I could sense passion in his playing. I decided to give it a try and play. I was extremely bad. But I really enjoyed it.
I later told my parents about it and how I’d like to play an instrument. I had no money at this time, so I had to wait. This year was an awesome year for me. I graduated, obtained my driving license, and eventually… got the money to buy the instrument I wanted. My parents had finally decided to give me 150 Euros to reward me. So… I bought a classical guitar. A Yamaha C70.
At that time, I did not know anything about the instrument. I’m quite sure I would have preferred a steel-string guitar, as I do now. But back then, this was such a big turning point in my life that I did not complain. I had finally found something I was passionate about.
Why I Chose To Teach Guitar
We are lucky today that we can have access to tons of information without paying for it. I want to surf on that wave, and bring you as much as I can the knowledge to become better at playing your instrument.
I found out that helping people achieving their goal is one of the most fulfilling feeling a person can experience. Combine it with passion, and it becomes something magical.
Besides, I really love teaching.
What I Want To Achieve Here
I am conscious a lot of information is already out there to help you learn guitar. So why do I still want to make a website about it? Simple. I believe we all teach differently. You might not like what a teacher proposes and decide to go somewhere else. If you like the way I teach, you will learn way more rapidly than with another teacher.
If you ever need a hand or have any questions, feel free to leave them below and I will be more than happy to help you out.
All the best,
