5 False Beliefs Keeping You From Enjoying Guitar

But the truth is...
Learning Guitar Is Much Easier Than You Think

…when you follow the right process and know what and how to practice. I found that the best approach is the one that lets you have fun with your guitar as fast as possible. That’s the basis for my system. This involves learning the 3 fundamentals of playing the guitar:

  1. Chords & Chord changes
  2. Finger Dexterity & Picking
  3. Rhythm & Strumming

Focusing on these essential elements as a beginner has produced the fastest results for my students. You’ll be able to:

  • Change chords quicker and smoother, so your guitar playing sounds more musical.
  • Move your fingers more nimbly, which makes playing easier and more effortless.
  • Improve your rhythm and strumming so you can play along with the songs you love.
  • And finally play a song that actually sounds like a song!

Most importantly, working on these 3 fundamentals will give you the confidence that you CAN learn and you WILL improve. It’ll give you a quick sense of progress, so you stay motivated to continue practicing and playing for a long time.

So Who Am I & Why Should You Choose Me To Teach You Guitar?

Hi, I’m Lauren Bateman! You and I have a lot in common…

We’re both passionate about music. We both always wanted to learn the guitar (it’s such a fun instrument!). And we both don’t have a formal music education (mine was in Biology and Archaeology actually). After 10 years of dabbling in the guitar, I decided to take real lessons so that I could actually get good. And I did!!

While I may own and operate three music schools and have taught thousands of students to play guitar over the years… I still remember very well what it was like to struggle through every practice session, the trial and error of randomly jumping from parts of one song to the next. And the frustration of not knowing what lesson I should study next while feeling like I should be a lot further along.

That’s why I teach the guitar in a non-traditional style. I don’t start with boring music theory or terminology. No need for mumbo jumbo that you don’t understand or need. Instead, I focus on the fundamentals – these are the skills you need to have fun with your guitar as soon as possible…so you can start impressing your family nd friends with your tunes! And my students seem to agree with my approach…

That's Why I Created The 7-Level Guitar System

After a decade of studying what worked and what didn’t for my students, I developed a simple step-by-step system that focuses on the absolute of guitar.

You’ll learn how to play the guitar even if you’ve never touched an instrument before. This system provides a solid foundation that you can build upon endlessly to level up your guitar skills. The program is structured into 7 levels that teach what you need to know, exactly when you need to know it. Each level builds upon the skills you’ve mastered in the last one, so you don’t have to worry about what’s coming next. Once you complete in one level and achieved those goals, you graduate to the next.

It’s a simple, straightforward plan.

There’s no skipping around or learning things in the wrong order, which leaves you frustrated, trying to figure out things that are too hard for you. With the 7-Level Guitar System, you’ll never feel overwhelmed or like you’re in over your head. You’ll progress steadily, accomplishing goals at each level, giving you the confidence and motivation to continue. The system is completely self-paced, so you can practice at your own speed on your schedule. There’s no pressure, but you also won’t get bored, I promise!

You’ve had a bad experience with a teacher. Maybe they were too impatient, had no structure, or insisted you spend hours learning music theory. My focus is on you having fun playing your guitar as soon as possible.


You’re excited about a fun, easy way to learn chords, strumming, and picking on your guitar. I’ll show you the simplest possible way to learn the fundamentals of the guitar. And easier versions of tricky bar chords.
