5 False Beliefs Keeping You From Enjoying Guitar
#1 I'M TOO OLD TO LEARN GUITAR
#2 I'M NOT TALENTED ENOUGH
#3 I'VE TRIED TO LEARN THE GUITAR BEFORE, AND IT DIDN'T WORK
#4 I CAN DO THIS ON MY OWN
#5 I JUST NEED TO PRACTICE MORE
But the truth is...
Learning Guitar Is Much Easier Than You Think
...when you follow the right process and know what and how to practice.
I found that the best approach is the one that lets you have fun with your guitar as fast as possible. That’s the basis for my system.
This involves learning the 3 fundamentals of playing the guitar:
Chords & Chord Changes
Finger Dexterity & Picking
Rhythm & Strumming
Focusing on these essential elements as a beginner has produced the fastest results for my students.
You’ll be able to…
✅ Change chords quicker and smoother, so your guitar playing sounds more musical.
✅ Move your fingers more nimbly, which makes playing easier and more effortless.
✅ Improve your rhythm and strumming so you can play along with the songs you love.
✅ And finally play a song that actually sounds like a song!
Most importantly, working on these 3 fundamentals will give you the confidence that you CAN learn and you WILL improve.
It’ll give you a quick sense of progress, so you stay motivated to continue practicing and playing for a long time.
So Who Am I & Why Should You Choose Me To Teach You Guitar?
Hi, I'm Lauren Bateman!
You and I have a lot in common…
We’re both passionate about music.
We both always wanted to learn the guitar (it’s such a fun instrument!)
And we both don’t have a formal music education (mine was in Biology and Archaeology actually).
After 10 years of dabbling in the guitar, I decided to take real lessons so that I could actually get good. And I did!!
While I may own and operate three music schools and have taught thousands of students to play guitar over the years...
I still remember very well what it was like to struggle through every practice session, the trial and error of randomly jumping from parts of one song to the next. And the frustration of not knowing what lesson I should study next while feeling like I should be a lot further along.
That’s why I teach the guitar in a non-traditional style. I don’t start with boring music theory or terminology. No need for mumbo jumbo that you don’t understand or need.
Instead, I focus on the fundamentals - these are the skills you need to have fun with your guitar as soon as possible...so you can start impressing your family nd friends with your tunes!
And my students seem to agree with my approach…
“Playing guitar before the 7-Level System was only a dream. It was only after Lauren that those dreams started to come true.”
— Eric Dechenes
That's Why I Created The 7-Level Guitar System
After a decade of studying what worked and what didn’t for my students, I developed a simple step-by-step system that focuses on the absolute of guitar.
You’ll learn how to play the guitar even if you’ve never touched an instrument before. This system provides a solid foundation that you can build upon endlessly to level up your guitar skills.
The program is structured into 7 levels that teach what you need to know, exactly when you need to know it. Each level builds upon the skills you've mastered in the last one, so you don’t have to worry about what’s coming next. Once you complete in one level and achieved those goals, you graduate to the next.
It’s a simple, straightforward plan. There’s no skipping around or learning things in the wrong order, which leaves you frustrated, trying to figure out things that are too hard for you.
With the 7-Level Guitar System, you’ll never feel overwhelmed or like you’re in over your head. You'll progress steadily, accomplishing goals at each level, giving you the confidence and motivation to continue.
The system is completely self-paced, so you can practice at your own speed on your schedule. There’s no pressure, but you also won’t get bored, I promise!
What’s Included In The 7 Level Guitar System:
✅ 70+ video lessons with simple follow-along exercises. Using terms that are easy to understand, I'll only introduce music theory concepts when you need them. And you can stop and go back or replay the video as many times as you want.
✅ 90+ practice tracks and play along videos to help you improve the speed of your chord changes These are easy songs ideal for beginners. I’ll show you several ways to play a song, and it's a fun challenge to keep up.
✅ PDF course workbook with instructions, tips, exercises, chords, and strumming patterns. The workbook follows the 7-Level System and outlines goals to aim for and helpful tips.
✅ The Perfect Practice Worksheet to help you create and organize the perfect practice session every time.
✅ Song suggestions if you’re keen to learn more songs. You’ll always know which songs will be at the right level for your playing ability at that point in the course.
✅ Tips for singing while you play.
Although this is a self-paced course, I want to make sure that you don’t ever feel alone while you’re learning. You aren’t fending for yourself. That’s why I’m including this special bonus for absolutely free.
✅ 3 Month Access to my Private Community: Have your questions answered and interact with other students who’re just as enthusiastic about the guitar as you are. Now and then, I also post additional video lessons.
✅ Monthly live Q&A sessions: You can talk to me directly via video and ask your questions about your playing and your practice.
Many students claim that my private community is the 'secret sauce' that makes my guitar program so special.
Student Bryan Wilson said, “When starting out learning to play guitar it is very intimidating and frustrating. This community of guitar enthusiasts are very supportive and encouraging. It helps knowing that you are on the same journey as others and hearing the challenges and solutions from others who have been exactly where you are today without judgement is simply incredible.”
“I would wholeheartedly recommend the online course and Lauren to anyone interested in learning how to play the guitar.”

You’re just getting started. As an absolute beginner, you might not even be confident that you’re holding your guitar properly. Don’t worry, I’ll show you everything you need to know.
You’ve tried learning the guitar for months (or even years), but haven’t had much success and are about to give up on your dream. I believe everybody has the ability to play the guitar in their own special and unique way. You, too!
You care about setting a solid foundation for your guitar practice that you can build upon. When you’ve mastered the fundamentals, you’ll be able to tackle more advanced techniques with ease.
You’re willing to put in at least 15 minutes 3-5 times a week to learn and play. Because you know that every bit of energy you invest is a strategic and meaningful step forward. And it will be!
You’re already investing time and energy practicing the guitar, but without a clear plan to follow, you haven’t seen much progress. I’ll set you up with a proper routine and goals to ensure that you steadily improve.
You’ve had a bad experience with a teacher. Maybe they were too impatient, had no structure, or insisted you spend hours learning music theory. My focus is on you having fun playing your guitar as soon as possible.
You’re excited about a fun, easy way to learn chords, strumming, and picking on your guitar. I’ll show you the simplest possible way to learn the fundamentals of the guitar. And easier versions of tricky bar chords.
You feel confident getting the course because you know you have 30 days to test out my system. If you’ve worked through the intro classes and first level, and STILL don’t see any progress with your guitar, I will give you your money back.
