The PLAY IT LIKE A PRO™ Series

These video lessons will show you exactly what to do to play each piece on a professional level. Learning these pieces with a teacher would take many hours of lessons and cost you hundreds of dollars. Even then, you probably wouldn't receive the detailed, comprehensive instruction you will receive here.

In addition to the video lessons, you receive PDFs of the arrangements in standard notation, standard notation and tab, an annotated version with detailed performance instructions, and more.
