Homepage - Real Guitar Lessons by Tomas Michaud


I help adults play and make music on the guitar in a fun and easy way. I use accompanying tracks, simple video lessons with clear instructions, and supportive feedback to help you learn at your own pace.

What Our Members Say About My Teaching

"I have taken private lessons, college guitar classes, and many online short courses. Many of the teachers were great guitarists, but I have found that you have been the best teacher. I like your presentations, techniques, and patience that you emit in your lessons."

- Herbert Burquez (St. Helena, CA)

"I can't say enough good things about my online guitar lessons! Tomas' lesson plans have allowed me to review the basics while building skills in reading music, strumming and playing new chords. I can say that my playing has improved dramatically since I began Tomas' online program and I have learned a better way to approach learning the guitar. I love the easy-to-follow videos and Tomas is always available to answer questions. I can say I've learned more in the past month than I did in several years of trying to teach myself."

- Monique Hairston (Oakland, CA)

"After approximately three years of lessons and another two on my own I found Tomas' on-line tutorials to be most useful in explaining key musical concepts. There are important reminders on theory and technique as well as material I was not exposed to or simply missed in my lessons. The videos and written explanations are clear and concise appealing to the varied learning needs of students."

- Don Arnold (Alameda, CA) 

"Thank you!!! I currently own over 45 DVD's of guitar lessons and was really going nowhere fast. After watching "YOUR" first several videos, I am starting to really re-engage with my three guitars in a serious way. Your teaching method is much more interesting, instructive and easier to follow so far. I am looking forward the next lessons. Thanks, again."

- Mike Hernandez (Union City, CA)
