Corey Christiansen’s Modern Guitar Community

Posted: May 17, 2013

Corey is excited to announce the launch of his Modern Guitar Online Community’s new platform. The new platform features online guitar lessons with video lessons, live masterclasses, chat rooms, discussion boards with easy to use navigation and more.

For years I have conducted countless workshops and masterclasses around the world giving me the insight and experience to present material in a concise and precise manner. These opportunities gave me intimate insight into so much information over the years that I feel I’ve developed one of the strongest curriculum out there. My curriculum is comprehensive and while at times it may seem difficult, it covers all aspects of this music.   My goal is to create a curriculum and community that will fill in the gaps that exist in many advanced players as well as provide the groundwork for aspiring guitarists through audio/visual and printed means.
