"As someone who picked up playing guitar without any formal music education in the instrument, I really appreciate the foundational nature as well as the performance element of being graded on my playing and learning. It is a good challenge and I encourage everyone to try this course."

BLACK BELT MUSICIAN'S PROGRAMS ARE A SOLUTION TO THE MOST COMMON PITFALLS AND PROBLEMS IN THE WAY MUSIC IS TAUGHT AND LEARNED TODAY. OUR COURSES USE WISDOM FROM THE MARTIAL ARTS COMBINED WITH A RIGOROUS CURRICULUM DESIGNED TO BLAST THROUGH THE PHYSICAL, MENTAL AND CONCEPTUAL ROADBLOCKS THAT STUDENTS FACE.
-MOST MUSIC STUDENTS ARE STRUGGLING ALONE WITH BOOKS OR VIDEOS WITHOUT A CLEAR PATH ON WHAT TO PRACTICE, HOW TO PRACTICE OR MOST IMPORTANTLY, HOW WHAT THEY LEARN FITS INTO THE LARGER PICTURE OF MUSIC TRAINING. THIS LEAVES THE STUDENT WITH NO WAY TO REMEMBER WHAT THEY LEARN LONG TERM AND MAKES LEARNING EACH PIECE OF MUSIC A MUCH LONGER AND DIFFICULT PROCESS.
WE USE A CERTIFICATION SYSTEM TO MAKE SURE OUR STUDENTS HAVE MASTERED THE NECESSARY SKILLS TO TAKE THIER MUSIC TO THE HIGHEST LEVEL AND REACH THIER FULL POTENTIAL.
-WHITE BELT (STRONG RHYTHMIC AND TECHNIQUE FOUNDATION )
-BLUE BELT (EFFECTIVE MUSIC THEORY FOR PLAYING WITH OTHERS, STARTING ADVANCED TECHNIQUE)
-PURPLE BELT (ADVANCED HARMONIC SKILL AND IMPROVISATION/COMPOSITION)
-BROWN BELT (FREEDOM AND CREATIVITY ON ENTIRE FINGERBOARD)
- BLACK BELT (UNSHAKABLE CONFIDENCE IN PERFORMANCE, LEADERSHIP IN ENSEMBLES, ABILITY TO TEACH THEMSELVES AND OTHERS)
MOST STUDENTS CAN'T SEE THE LEVEL OF POTENTIAL THEY HAVE BECAUSE THEY WASTE MONTHS AND YEARS IN RUTS AND FRUSTRATION.
WITH THE RIGHT COMMUNITY, PLAN AND MENTORSHIP OUR STUDENTS GAIN THE FOUNDATION TO PLAY FREELY AND CONFIDENTLY, WHILE MAKING FRIENDS AND HAVING A GREAT TIME.
