Sam Bhatia attended Guitar

"One word amazing. I think I was lil skeptical to start of with online class but 15 mins into class 1 and I was sure I have found my teacher who will take my learning to the next level. Shovik has explained the theory so well that it is easy and fun. I am not learning just the guitar I am actually learning music composition. I am gonna be learning from Shovik for next few years that's for sure. Patience, smile and persistence are 3 things I get in every class apart from knowledge from him. I Will highly recommend Shovik to anyone who's looking to learn music. "

Only for intermediate and advanced players but not for beginners, since lots of vital physical aspects like finger alignments, hand positions and most importantly , the organic inspiration to listen to your guru play in front of you can never be achieved online
