In January 2009, Los Angeles Guitar Academy launched its online guitar lesson platform, LAGA Online. From its humble beginnings as a simple repertoire database for our in-studio classes and private lessons, our online options expanded into a stand-alone program which has attracted students from all over North America. For the first time, LAGA students could now enjoy learning to play the guitar from the comfort of their own homes.
|LAGA Online has something for every guitarist, regardless of level or playing style. A systematic, comprehensive curriculum, LAGA Online has more than two thousand videos which cover classical guitar, Flamenco guitar, fingerboard theory and more. LAGA Online has an equally formidable lineup on its on-demand platform, which offers unlimited access to guitar lessons 24/7. In addition to these on-demand programs, guitarists can even take live one-on-one lessons, virtually bringing their world-class teaching staff right into your home!|
|LAGA’s internationally-acclaimed instructors, Emre Sabuncuoglu and Thomas Foster, sequence the tutorials in each program by skill sets and proficiency levels. The lessons are supplemented with sheet music files, articles, tips, technical and musical comments. The lessons progress in small steps in order to provide you with the opportunity to master each new skill set. Students can learn at their own pace, taking time to understand each concept before moving on the next.|
For more advanced guitarists, LAGA Online offers a teacher development program that trains students in the techniques that have made Los Angeles Guitar Academy a world-class institution. Teacher Development Program students learn how to teach with the Alexander Technique, as well as the rote kinesthetic and reverse kinesthetic approaches that make learning the guitar seem easy. LAGA’s teaching students learn communication and leadership skills that will help them in either the studio or the classroom.
First time on-demand students receive a free 3-day trial–which includes both classical and Flamenco–no credit card needed. To begin, log on to LAGA Online.
