"It's a testament to your teaching skill how often these videos have no people asking any questions. Thank you so much for taking the time to put this out there for everybody.”

“These lessons are fantastic - no waffle, just really clear explanations of things that have baffled me for years (decades actually). Many thanks!”

“Brilliant lesson .... these tutorials are increasing my knowledge of the fret-board no end!!!”

“Perfect lessons, thank you”

“wow just discovered. just started watching and have every intention to watch all of these in order until completion. exactly what I was looking for and excellent presentation.”

“Taught so well that I have no questions just compliments. Awesome course. Ready for the next.”

“These videos are pure gold. Music theory always scared me, but you make it easy!”

“You are a great teacher!...Sir you made it so nice and simple ...Thank you”

“Easy to understand and follow along, thanks!”

“I've bought 3 music theory books and these videos and eguide are way more helpful and thorough. thank you so much for all of this! keep it up :)”

"First I just gotta thanks you for all the great lessons. You have made such a difference for me I can even tell you. I tried MT when I was young and I failed at it because the teacher was teaching from piano and I never understood the transfer. It has bothered me for 30 years that I could not understand the difference between scales and modes and in just a few lessons you had me understand. You have made it possible for me to see it and that is a minor miracle. So thank you soo much.”
