What is Guitopia?

Guitopia is a guitar education website developed by actual working, experienced, music-industry professionals to help you learn as effectively and efficiently as possible.  Our philosophy is simple:  learn, implement, make music.


Basically, we’re going to show you what and how to practice to become a proficient guitarist.  But more importantly, we’re going to show you how to  turn those tools into usable, creative, musical ideas to use in your improvisation or writing.  Watch this video to learn more!

Guitopia has more features to help you become a better player, today!
