Very good class with Kyle again. I enjoy learning more tips and tricks for remembering how to get to one chord than the other.

Ackra K. on January 19, 2021

Kyle is an outstanding teacher. His knowledge and passion for pop and rock music is infectous. He has taught us about chords and music theory in a very relatable way. I hope this course continues

Excellent Teacher, Fun and You learn a lot too!

Dee on January 5, 2021

Kyle is a wonderful and passionate teacher with a style that is very easy to understand. I've managed to get to grips with all the new things he's taught me in next to know time and I'm looking forward to learning more with him.

Heidi on January 12, 2021

Good class yesterday, learned a lot about minor scales and how a melodic minor can be used to use notes out of the main key.

Verified Student on July 27, 2021

Good for beginners to learn about chords and chord progressions, chords in a scale. I appreciated how patient Kyle was for our young audience, and was answering his questions so he didn't feel excluded. That was awesome, Kyle!
