"When I took guitar lessons from Guitarmann, I couldn't believe how quickly I was able to start actually playing songs. I had taken lessons in the past, but things never really "stuck", no matter how hard I practiced. I think the Guitarmann Method is best way for anyone who wants to learn guitar. You'll be playing real songs the right way in no time. I use what I learned nearly EVERY DAY as a worship leader, guitarist, and song writer for Vertical Worship"

"I can say without a doubt that Stephen Mann will take you far beyond your expectations when it comes to learning the guitar. His teachings have brought me to the point where I now lead worship for several different youth events, and at my own church as well. I would not recommend anybody other than Stephen!"
"I took a guitar to my first lesson knowing nothing about chords or technique. Literally within a few months, I not only knew a good number of popular chords, but also I knew techniques for figuring out nearly every chord I might come upon. Stephen's method of teaching guitar is amazingly easy to grasp quickly, yet at the same time challenging enough to help you achieve your personal goals."
