What You'll Get


At the age at which most children learn to speak, Mozart had already composed four symphonies, restored 11 classic cars, and built a robot to play against in squash. Catch up to Mozart's accomplishments with this Groupon.

Choose Between Two Options

  • $45 for six-week guitar-immersion class (a $120 value)
  • $65 for the above class with a six-week guitar rental (a $40 value; a $160 total value)

Each eight-person class meets once a week for a 30-minute session, complemented by a suite of daily practice plans that incorporate online video and audio. Dave holds classes in the Learning Studio, a high-tech venue that pipes student riffs directly to the instructor’s headphones, rather than projecting them to the whole class. Within three weeks, even total beginners master a song; beginner students also receive free assistance with tuning and stringing.

About Dave's Guitar Instruction


With its neon-purple stage lights and 70” plasma screen, Dave's Guitar Instruction's studio resembles a rock-concert stage as much as it does a classroom. And that's the point. The school's classes, capped at eight students, combine the intimacy of a private lesson with high-tech, professional trappings. The studio's personal headphones pipe each student's chords to only their ears and the instructor's, providing sonic privacy and easing shyness; meanwhile, the stage platform vibrates to prepare students for the bass vibrations of a concert or having to perform during a minor earthquake.

Students of all levels hone their skills with the help of Dave Milliken, an instructor with more than 25 years of guitar performance experience. Dave's love for genres from folk to hip-hop informs his multimedia lessons. During classes, students play along with live recordings or watch concert clips featuring legendary guitar players and plectrums unjustly forgotten by history. For an immersive experience, Dave's students augment their classwork with custom at-home practice sessions, aided by online-video and audio resources.
