So you’re a beginner guitar player who knows…you need help.

And you probably have a feeling that youtube videos aren’t making you the guitar player you want to be.

And you’re right in more ways than you realize…

Because learning from videos is digging you into a hole of bad habits, when really what you want is to be climbing the ladder of guitar mastery.

The problem is bad guitar habits set up walls in the way of your development. And this will box you into a limited skill set of only being able to play certain things.

Whereas your development and growth potential should be limitless, and it will be if you develop the proper coordination and basics. This is where expert instruction and real-time feedback make all the difference!


My name is Coren Smith. I love music and teaching others. It is my mission to fuel the evolution of humanity; and one of the best tools we have for this is ART. And to me, music has a special place among the arts. Music fuels us like no other art. We love music so much that it can make our bodies move, our hearts soar, it can change our whole outlook on life and existence. Music means so much to each of us; it is both universal and personal at the same time. Music transcends all boundaries.

I look out at the world today and like many I see great music is being played everywhere; except on the radio. Now I grew up in the eighties and the nineties, so I saw an era where guitar playing had reached phenomenal new heights, followed by an age where commercially successful music was dumbed down for the general masses and great guitar players were replaced by mediocre ones. How this came about is a topic of debate I could go on for hours (drop me a line!), but one thing is clear: we still haven’t recovered from this illness. I am appalled at how little most guitar teachers actually know. I have had students that have been playing for ten, even fifteen years come to me who have taken lessons and know about as much as my beginner students (with a lot of bad habits on top of that). It’s time to graduate from kindergarten!

It is my goal to bring real guitar instruction to the masses so that we may better ourselves as musicians, and as a humanity! I teach the knowledge and principles that will allow you to be able to play ANYTHING! It’s all up to you, so if you have the drive then pick up your guitar and get ready to learn!!!

Coren is a great teacher, real professional and easy to communicate personally and I can assure you will achieve the level that will lead you to the big stage of music.

Coren is one of the best; the caveat being that I’ve only had a handful of lessons w/him, but as I’ve stated, I kind of recognize pretty quickly how it’s going to be & he brings it!


Coren’s teaching methods are admirable as he makes learning guitar scales extremely fun and interesting. Making songs with my band has never been easier!

I'm a 65-year-old guy who decided, over a year ago, to try to start learning to play acoustic guitar. Fortunately, my son got me started by giving me a gift of a few guitar lessons with Coren. After just a few lessons, it became obvious to me that Coren is a very knowledgeable, professional, and patient teacher. I continue to take lessons with him and enjoy the fact that he has taught me so much in a relatively short period of time. I would recommend his to anyone who wants to learn guitar!

My daughter just started guitar lessons with Divine Guitar and she has learned SO much, so quickly. She enjoys her time during lessons, but is also excited to practice on her own. Gaining confidence by the day. Looking forward to continuing to see her growth!

My daughter is engaged and learning with Coren. She enjoys practice between lessons and finds it fun which is awesome because she doesn’t want to do what doesn’t feel fun. Especially these days.

Have been learning guitar from Coren for a year now. He is an amazing musician first and a teacher with patience. His teaching techniques are very unique and interesting, often puts a smile on my face after learning how simple it is. He also teaches me music theory with which am able to understand not just guitar but other instruments as well. He respects ART very much. Definitely recommend Divine Guitar Lessons.
