The Most Comprehensive Online Guitar Course Ever Made
We are very excited to have teamed up with the incredibly talented Sophie Burrell to bring you The Ultimate Guitar Course! This course is the result of thousands of hours of planning, filming, editing, tweaking, working through feedback and carefully sculpting the flow of information to bring you what is, in our humble opinion, the most comprehensive guitar course ever made.
This course will take you the whole way from holding your guitar for the first time, how to hold a pick and fret a note, all the way to feeling confident jamming with friends, writing your own music and enjoying a newly found freedom on the guitar.
About Your Teacher
Sophie Burrell is a rapidly rising star in the guitar world. From the age of 5, she has been unwavering in her passion and excitement for music. Her experience of teaching thousands of students how to play guitar has given her the knowledge and confidence to put together this incredible resource. Coupled with her wealth of experiences performing on stages, in TV studios and in front of a camera for her enthusiastic online audience, Sophie is the epitome of the kind of artist we strive to create our courses with.
As a predominantly self-taught guitarist, Sophie understands how difficult it can be to teach yourself when you are wading through the sea of seemingly infinite information online. The lack of structure in self-directed guitar education stops many people far too early in their journey, down to sheer overwhelm and frustration. How do you know what works? What order do you learn these skills in? What happens when I get stuck?
That’s why we made this course. One place to keep coming back to, one teacher, one philosophy of empowering you with fundamental knowledge of the guitar to go forward as a confident and well-informed musician.

About The Course
We have carefully designed the flow of lessons to build you up from being an absolute beginner to having a solid level of confidence and ability.
These 100 lessons represent at least 2 years of one-to-one private tuition, with the added benefit of working at your own pace and being able to refer back to the information at any time.
It is the perfect starting point for beginners, but also for intermediate players who want to revisit essential knowledge and skills to make sure they have the most solid foundation possible.
Not only will you find a wide range of lessons covering absolutely everything you need to learn how to play guitar, you will also learn all of the practical ‘life skills’ around being a guitarist. How to maintain your guitar, build a practice routine and play with other musicians are all covered in this course.
You can follow this course sequentially, as it is designed, or take your own path. It’s up to you! Either way, you can keep track of your progress and we are here to help you get to the next stage of your journey as a musician.
Sophie places a heavy emphasis on making everything you learn practically useful, musically relevant and, most importantly, fun! Throughout the course, you will learn over 40 of Sophie’s favourite iconic songs and riffs covering a wide range of styles and techniques, where she will show you how the skills you are learning apply to real music. Because, after all, what is technique without context?
About The Lessons
At Musicisum we are setting the bar for high-quality music education with our cinema-grade video production. We use 5 camera angles, filming in ultra-high definition 4K, including our popular overhead angle to give you a first-person perspective of Sophie looking at the fretboard.
You will also find clear and concise on-screen information to help you visualise what Sophie is teaching. Throughout the lessons, you will see chord diagrams, guitar tablature and animations to keep you on track. Sophie will also give you in-depth explanations on how to read chord diagrams and guitar tab, as well as learn any song by ear. This all combines to give you the skills to go out into the world as a confident guitarist!
The average lesson on this course is around 7 minutes. In every lesson, Sophie introduces what you are going to learn and shows you how it fits into the broader context of your guitar playing. The particular topic that you are learning will be shown slowly, chords are broken down into exactly where to place each finger, scales are taken note by note, and techniques are deconstructed into their core mechanics to make sure you have them under your fingers.
From her many years of teaching experience, Sophie knows where the common stumbling points are. She will help you pre-emptively troubleshoot any issues you are having to keep you progressing smoothly.
You will also find that each lesson flows seamlessly into the next, thanks to our carefully designed course structure. That means you can finish one lesson and be perfectly set up to move into the next.
Every song, chord, scale and technique in this course is taught and then given a greater musical context so that you won’t just know how to do something, but why it’s done that way and more importantly, how to build on it and progress beyond it.
We are confident you will love learning guitar with Sophie!
