Rabea Massaad

 You can't go far in the world of modern guitar without spotting Rabea. From huge YouTube videos to huge stages, Rabea started playing guitar because he injured himself skateboarding and couldn't play the drums anymore. His unique approach to phrasing and note choice has distinguished him just as much as his hair, and he embodies everything it takes to be a well-rounded modern musician.

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.
