I've been learning from Phil through his Musicisum course for a few months now, and I can honestly say that he's the best guitar teacher I've ever had! He really takes the time to explain everything thoroughly. Thanks to his course, I've finally been able to get comfortable with the modes and understand how to build much more interesting chords - something I never thought I'd be able to do. Thanks guys!


Brian Anderson

"Just wanted to tell you I am loving the Modes and Harmony Fundamentals course you made with Phil Dyer. Music theory has always been something that I have avoided because it never made sense to me and I just want to play. This course changed that and now I actually understand why I am playing certain chords and scales and it's helping me learn new songs by understanding more theory. Thank you from a (no longer!) frustrated guitarist!!"

Matthew Cheng

"Phil is a fantastic teacher who really knows his stuff. He's helped me to understand music theory in a way that I never thought possible, and I've seen a real improvement in my playing as a result. His Modes and Harmony Fundamentals course is top-notch, and I would recommend it to anyone looking to improve their guitar skills."

After a couple of weeks of learning with Musicisum I have officially got the bug! I come home looking forward to sitting down with my guitar and laptop!

This is the first website I've seen that can truly inspire and teach any beginner musician.

The courses here have completely transformed my playing - thank you!

Thank you for a great site! I just love it. These lessons are so cool and easy to understand. I really love the relaxed way of teaching.

Musicisum is the best way to learn guitar! It has inspired me to pick up my electric again for the first time in years and get back to practicing properly.
