The Learn and Master Guitar course is one of the better known guitar learning courses on the market today, and has been for the past several years. In this Learn and Master Guitar review, I will share my personal experiences with this course.
Learn and Master Guitar is taught by Steve Krenz, who is a trained musician with an advanced degree in music and many years of professional playing experience. The entire course consists of 20 high quality DVDs, 5 Jam Along CDS, a 108 page workbook and a wide variety of supplementary material.
The entire Learn and Master Guitar package is very well put together and thought out. The DVD video lessons are very watchable and the step by step instruction is very easy to understand and follow. Steve does a decent job explaining and demonstrating the relevant topics that he is going over. Learn and Master Guitar is suited for guitar players of any level, as it starts from the very basics and ends with some very advanced techniques. Along the way, you’ll learn the necessary guitar fundamentals, basic chords, various strumming methods, how to read music, master guitar scales, and much more.
When you aren’t in a convenient place to watch the video lessons, you still have access to all of the Learn and Master Guitar printed materials. The included workbook gives you access to all the songs and lessons that you see on the videos. It’s another way to practice and is a good change of pace to the video lessons.
Learn and Master Guitar vs Guitar Tricks (and JamPlay)
It really depends on your learning style and how you want to learn guitar. Some people need specific direction and learning guitar from a guided DVD course is just what the doctor ordered.
Contrast this to the other two online guitar courses where there is more freedom to pick what to do. However, if you don’t have experience playing the guitar yet, that freedom might not be what you need, and the structure and pace of Learn and Master Guitar might be better suited for you.
Finally there’s the price. At $149, Learn and Master Guitar is not cheap. However, it is a one time payment unlike Guitar Tricks or JamPlay. Legacy also offers different sales throughout the year, so you may be able to pick the course up for cheaper too. So if you know you’re going to be playing guitar for a long time, then you might find that the one-off payment to be a better value.
