I appreciate being able to go at my own pace

The layout of all the lessons is extremely easy to grasp, and there is no schedule you must commit to in order to go through them. This format is useful to those who are already preoccupied with other commitments, and just want to learn on their own time. The lessons themselves are entertaining and help break down subjects I did not fully understand before taking them.

This is the most well laid out comprehensive course I've ever had

I learned more in the first 20 lessons than I was able to learn in 40-50 hours of watching youtube videos. This is an invaluable resource for people trying to learn music theory to any competent degree and the way Jake lays everything out makes perfect sense and is incredibly easy to follow along with. Cannot recommend this course enough

Brilliant overview of everything you need to know to write music

I started making music because I came across Jake's videos on YouTube. His teaching changed my life even before starting this course. This course is so well-presented, without any fluff and with endlessly useful information, exercises, and ideas.

COMPLETELY FOOL PROOF!

I've been a guitar "player" for over 20 years... my love and passion for guitar has come and gone time and time again...I've always asked myself why?! Deep down it was my fear of failure in not being able to understand music... really understand how it is built, how it is influenced and above all else, how it is spoken... Thank you Mr. Lizzio, I can now speak music.

Everything I needed to connect the dots

This course is what I was wayting for this last 20 years: music theory applied to songwriting, each concept explained in the right order and in a simple and very efficient way. Worth every cent. Thanks Jake <3

Music Theory and Songwriting Course FAQs

Probably! Only about 15% of this course is dedicated to the guitar, while the remaining concepts are taught in a way that can easily be applied to any other instrument. However, since all the theory taught is viewed through the lens of the guitar, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED that you own a guitar before pursuing this course to finish.
This is not a course on guitar playing or technique, but on theory and songwriting. The only skills you are expected to know is how to read guitar tablature, and the absolute basics of guitar playing (how to fret a note, open chords, etc)
I can confidently say that this method of learning will be more effective and valuable for many types of students. Since there is no wasted time or filler, it is more time-efficient than real life lessons where the teacher or student can get distracted. The printable materials are of a higher quality than most private lessons. And the ability to replay a lesson over and over is invaluable for students struggling to understand difficult topics.
Not quite- my YouTube channel explores more advanced topics without explaining the prerequisites. 95% of the content in this course is totally unique and unexplored on my channel, and is taught in a linear fashion as to make sure you’re totally competent by the end. There are only two lessons that include cross over with my YouTube channel. However, after some lessons, you are directed to specific YouTube videos I’ve produced to help expand on your understanding of the previous topics and to help weave my channel in with the course.
Nope! Once purchased you’ll have access for life, including any additional lessons or worksheets that get added in over time.
Currently, no. But I am working on getting a physical version of the course made instead of digital-only. Stay tuned!
