A glimpse of the past
Elite Guitar Coaching is a system that was personally developed by Ioannis Anastasakis, after privately coaching professional guitar players over 25 years. The need for such a system emerged around 10 years ago, when coaching requests from people from all around the world – and many would relocate for months at a time to study with Ioannis in his country, Greece! But there was no way for him to consistently, continuously and and effectively coach them – until now. The unique challenge was to be able to offer ALL the significant advantages of the face-to-face Private Lessons teaching format but also increase retention of information, while at the same time make the learning process more affordable and much more convenient for both parties. After a LOT of trial-and-error, the Elite Guitar Coaching program was developed and honed to perfection!
A system completely personalized to your needs
This is NOT another ready-made online guitar course! Ioannis will be personally supervising your progress all the way to your top. There will be him constantly looking over your shoulder, promptly correcting any errors, emphasizing your strong skills, strengthening your weak ones and bringing balance to your technique.
Most of all Ioannis will find and develop your unique personal style – the quintessence of your playing. This course does NOT intend to produce highly skilled identical robots. It DOES intend to create highly trained musicians – each one with his own style and artistic personality maximized to the extreme. It intends to create artists with the full meaning of the word.
The System’s Structure
The first step to enter the course is to take the Free Skill Assessment Test. Think of this Skill Assessment Test as a music knowledge X-ray that will give Ioannis a perfect “scan” of your guitar playing knowledge and general music skill level. Within 48-72 hours, Ioannis will contact you personally, with suggestions on what you need to do to optimise your guitar playing skills.
Once your enrolment is complete and you have been accepted to the Elite Guitar Coaching Premium level, Ioannis will study your Skill Assessment Test in depth and will spend several hours creating a customised Study plan, tailor made to your specific guitar playing strengths and weaknesses.
This will give you access to a special private section of our site where all your course will be progressively built week after week specially for you. The course will be comprised by videos, documents, audio and of course personal audio comments by Ioannis that will guide you through your studies. The aim is to quickly eliminate your sticking points and resolve your blind spots. This plan will be different from everybody else’s, although some things will obviously overlap (like basic scales and basic technical exercises).
There will be a continuous interaction between you and Ioannis. You can send him emails or audio with anything you would like to ask. Additionally at the end of each week or whenever you have any part of the training materials that you received ready for Ioannis to review, you can post videos of your playing for to REVIEW and comment by sending you FEEDBACK. You do not have to do it every week. Some people will only post once a month, some will send 2 videos per week. It depends on you and the specific material and how much practise time you managed to get during the week. The material that you sent will be carefully reviewed and Ioannis will record a video OR an audio response with his FEEDBACK SPECIFICALLY for you and the material you uploaded.
The FEEDBACK of the Coach.
Additionally every couple of weeks, an Open Counselling session takes place a group online video/audio meeting will be held where you can speak with Ioannis in real time. This is the time where in a warm and friendly environment personal questions can be asked, techniques exhibited, goals analyzed and strategies set. Remember: Ioannis will not just be your guitar tutor. He will be the coach of your career.
