“When I graduated from Music School all I wanted to do was play guitar EVERYDAY and earn a living doing what my passion was. Getting up at 6am to sit in traffic for 2 hours, to arrive at my desk and listen to Mildred gossip about Tim’s extracurricular affairs was simply not an option. Now that I know it’s possible, I want to give that opportunity to other musicians!”

We’ll be blunt, working at Guitar Excellence isn’t for everybody. If you hate working with champions, if you hate working from home, if you hate the gig economy, if you hate to hustle hard, if you hate the freedom to be self-directed, if you hate learning, if you hate the pursuit of success, if you hate striving for excellence in all that you do, then you are not for Guitar Excellence.

We only work with the best teachers who excel in teaching skills, playing experience and the utmost professionalism. We cater to individuals who are looking to further their music career looking to work hard, play hard, and earn the most consistent form of commission income as a guitarist in the music business environment.
