Learn guitar online. 

It really is that simple. 

Sure, you could learn a few songs.
But if you stopped there, you wouldn't learn guitar.

If you're like most of my students, you've probably viewed a few (or a heap of!) online tutorials hoping to learn a few songs, licks, or lines, and you've been frustrated in the process. 

"How can they play it so perfectly?" 
"Why don't I sound like them?"
"How did he know how to do that?"
"What do I need to do to play it like that?"
"I'm sick of these ads!"

Don't get me wrong, you probably have a win here and there, but the whole process isn't what you're hoping for. You're left unsatisfied and don't know how to get better. 

Or perhaps you can follow the free tutorials no worries and you sound great (go you!), but you just want more. You want to understand music, deepen your skills, and perhaps even be able to create your own music. 

Well, there's hope for you, friends!  

We teach the musical essentials.
This makes us different.

Learn Guitar Online with Zac Pugh

In these courses, you'll learn how to... 

Read music

Learn the valuable skill of reading music, as you learn guitar! This is often overlooked, and as a result, there is confusion later on. 

I want you to understand music and guitar together, so you have a complete foundation, ready to play in any style and at any level!

Understand rhythm

Rhythm is how music moves through time. I’ll teach you about note values, time signatures, and more, so you can confidently play rhythm guitar like a pro! 

Play songs

A good guitarist knows that playing both chords and melody is important. I’ve written songs with backing tracks that make you better at both of these things, while also having something to show for it. Learning should be fun after all!

These three principles build the perfect foundation to sky rocket your guitar playing

Homeschooling Parent

It's been fantastic having this resource by our side.

I love watching my daughter progress through the course. She feels that every step is achievable but I can also see that they are challenging enough to build her skills at a great pace. The course is also neatly laid out and super easy to navigate. 


Thank you :)

I wanted to say, that I haven´t played guitar for a very long time and I really enjoy getting into it again. You´re lessons are very helpful!

I am getting a lot of enjoyment as I learn guitar through Zac's on line course. His teaching style is really good. I love the way that the course is self paced and I find the backing tracks and printable materials very helpful.


11 Years Old

The backing tracks are groovy and fun to play along with.

The exercises make me feel really confident with my playing and I get excited about what I'm going to learn next.

About The Teacher,
Zac Pugh

Zac is an Australian based musician and guitar teacher. After picking up the guitar at age 11, Zac has been playing and studying music ever since. His teaching style is relaxed and he has a friendly, positive attitude.

Zac has completed his Bachelor of Music Degree at the University of Tasmania and was awarded the Dean's Role of Excellence in 2006.

Zac has taught guitar to hundreds of people from ages 7-70. Some have just wanted to learn some basic chords and strum along to their favourite songs. Others have studied guitar with Zac to excel at college level music and performance subjects, while still others have focused on composition and song writing.

"The great thing about the guitar is you can play so many styles on it. I’ve always loved the flexibility it gives me as a musician."

Zac’s latest project has been working with good friend and business partner Simon Petrusma to create the Zac Pugh Guitar online teaching platform.
The intention was to be able to teach people guitar from the beginning in a really convenient and affordable way.

Zac’s personal musical interests include composing in a variety of styles such as Rock, Blues, Jazz and Pop.
Whenever there’s a moment of spare time Zac loves to lock himself away in his private studio where he can create and explore music making and pushing his skills to new limits.

For Zac, guitar is a journey which will take more than one lifetime to fully discover but, the journey is what makes it fun.

Here’s what people are saying about Zac



I highly recommend him to total beginners and more accomplished players!!

I began guitar lessons with Zac as a beginner last year.

I found his teaching approach friendly, relaxed and well structured. Lessons were well planned which helped me improve much faster than I thought I would!

I have learnt a variety of techniques in each lesson. Most of the songs Zac uses to teach me are all composed by him, specifically to improve different aspects of my playing. The recordings are so helpful when practicing at home at my leisure.

Zac has proved himself to be totally professional, an experienced teacher and a great musician. He is, importantly, extremely patient and enthusiastic with a warm and helping personality.



Thumbs up from me!

I have had the pleasure of learning from Zac personally over the years. His style of teaching has been so helpful to me. I am so excited that now anyone, anywhere can learn guitar from him. 


Music Teacher

It is an absolute pleasure to work with Zac!

I have been dealing with Zac for a couple of years and he has helped prepare guitar students for exams via Skype lessons.

Zac is, at all times, professional and punctual, yet has an engaging way of working with the students. He is always well-prepared for each Skype lesson and works through each student's repertoire beforehand.

Zac is able to address technical and performance issues quickly and is very quick to suggest exercises or practice methods to overcome these. He often creates short exercises during a lesson and then emails it to the student/teacher afterwards. He also supplies lesson notes after each session. 


College Student

 I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in playing guitar.

I’ve been playing guitar with Zac since 2018 and I’ve made massive progress with my time with him. He is outgoing, immensely skilled and very friendly which makes for a brilliant learning environment and great relationships with his students.

Over the time Zac has been my teacher, I have learnt so much about the art of playing the guitar and we have connected through our similar taste in music. Ive gone from basic chords to recording songs from my favourite bands, and now getting finished with the pentatonic scales that have greatly improved my playing.

How do YOU want to learn?

Learning guitar involves two key ingredients:


Dedication (from you)

A system

Right now, in this moment, ask yourself if you want to continue scrolling through the endless number of videos on the online 'system' of free guitar learning tutorials. Be honest with yourself: it probably takes you a long time to find the videos you need for your stage of playing. 

Or what about the other approach? How about getting a physical guitar tutor? Excellent idea! This is by far the most effective way to learn guitar, because you have real-time feedback and specific advice and practice tips relevant for you. 

But of course due to finances, or work or study commitments, we don't all have the luxury of spending 30-minutes or more with someone who usually charges upwards of $30 per lesson.

This adds up quickly if you have 4 lessons per month so can cost you well over $120 per month!

So where is the middle-ground?

You've found it. Online guitar lessons. Paying for a membership like this one will ensure you get a system that is tried and tested. If you add the essential ingredient of dedication, you WILL learn guitar, and you WILL sound amazing. That's our promise!

On a personal note

I'm really excited to be teaching guitar. Not many people receive the joy that I feel when seeing the progress of each of my students. It's truly a privilege, and I'd love you to join me.  

As I'm sure you know, learning guitar is a long journey, so you must be committed to it. But, if you're willing to put in some hard work for some big rewards, come and join me! 

I hope to teach to you soon.
