Dear Christian Guitar Playing Friend,
What an AWESOME God we have! He is so worthy of our praise. It's been a joy for me to teach others to play the guitar for most of my life. In 2001 I made the first Worship Guitar Class video with you in mind. The Worship Guitar Class lessons were birthed in prayer and for the purpose of helping people just like you draw closer to Him through learning and developing the skill of playing worship guitar.
The Worship Guitar Class lessons are in DVD format in both English and Spanish. It was suggested to Trademark the name, which could only be done with my own being added. Today 'Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class™' is a tool for Christian churches and worshippers in over 70 countries. I've had the wonderful opportunities to study with world-class guitarists. You can have lessons from a worshipper who can explain how to play with excellent technique too.
Here are a couple examples of what I mean. I gave free 5-minute lessons at a Homeschool Convention and also a Christian Booksellers Association Trade Show. This is what happens with God plus a trained teacher (me) and an open heart (you) come together:
"Hi, my name is Kent and I just had I've just had a 5-minute lesson here and I've just learned something today that I've been struggling with wanting to learn... well for years. And I've learned it today and I feel like I know something now that I can apply for the future. Thank You."
Christian, have you been frustrated in the past
with trying to learn the guitar? Don't give up yet...
"My husband tried to learn to play the guitar using different books for more than a year and he almost gave up. We got your DVD and it's really helping him! Now he's improving and feeling more confident because he knows what he's supposed to do. Your DVDs are a blessing to many people!" Shirley Chang - Bellevue, WA
"Well thank you. I really appreciate this lesson. I've just learned in 10 minutes what I've been.... I've been playing for 4 years, 5 years and in 10 minutes I've learned more than... oh my... than in the past 5 years. So thank you Jean.
I appreciate this because I had no idea, I've been struggling and I thought I wasn't really much of a guitarist but now I have hope again, so bless you for that! So thank you. I would recommend this for everyone, and we're going to definitely bring this into the store." - Jane Lawson, Remunda Cornerstone Bkst, Wickenburg, AZ.(Christian Store)
As you can see in the video testimony above my Christian guitar lessons program is also available in retail stores. We're in well over 1300 stores and growing. The DVDs are even available locally in US stores in Canada, the UK, Singapore and Jamaica.
What will you learn? Glad you asked. I've prepared a 6 minute audio so you could get an idea of what's in the Christian guitar program. Most of the songs are familiar worship songs to most churches. These songs are copyrighted so I couldn't actually sing them in this audio. Also, there are now 4 DVDs instead of just the 3 in the audio. The 4th DVD has songs like 'Shout to the Lord,' 'Open The Eyes Of My Heart,' and more.
Brief 6-Minute Audio Of What's In The Worship Guitar Class Lessons
.To give you an idea of the lessons... here's the first worship guitar lesson, free. As you will see there are several close-up shots for both hands. The DVDs also have a practice section where you can play all the Christian guitar songs with me, at a very slow tempo.

You Can Learn To Play The Guitar Quicker
I opened this page with a statement that in a few months people will think you've been playing for years. That was written because this is what people tell me. Every time I get testimonies like these I'm always touched. The verse that says He can do above and beyond what you can ask or think is one I'm well acquainted with!
"God has surely blessed my husband (Stan) with your lessons here at home. He is so fired up and amazed with what God is doing. We usually have him open us up in a few worship songs before we do our family devotions. Our friends have been staying over with us for the last 5 weeks and they are just blown away with Stan's gift to play the guitar. We all gather around to sing worship songs together while he plays.
Stan has only been playing for about 5 months, but it seems like he's been playing for a couple of years. He prays every time he begins his lessons with you and then he takes that big step of faith to apply what he's learned. God has filled him with His peace. Thank you and God bless you, Jean. He is surely using you to reach others here in Hawaii.......:)" - Deanne Tangonan, Hawaii

P.S. – Still have questions? Here are answers to commonly ask questions.
- What age do you recommend for the videos? For example, is my nine year-old too young?
- Can you use the videos to teach classes?
- What would you recommend for a beginner's first guitar? Any brands? And why?
- Do you have any advice on what to look for and what to avoid when purchasing a used guitar?
- We have a bookstore in our church and want to carry your videos. Can we order the videos wholesale?
- How many credits would you issue to a homeschool student for each video? How many hours do they need?
- How much is shipping?
No, nine 1/2 years old and higher are great for the videos. I don't recommend them for younger than nine. I've taught kids from age five, but the video is geared for an older audience. Younger kids, ages 4 1/2 - 9, can play the songs, but I would start them slower, with one finger chords, for example. (See program 'Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class™ for Kids')
On the upper end, there is no age limit. I've taught students in their 80's. I'd teach them older too. One of my 'Grandma' students told me her mother learned to swim at age 90. It's wonderful to always grow and learn!
Absolutely! There are several churches in the US and Canada that are using the videos to teach. If you want to do that, let me know and I'll send you a sheet on how to use them in a class setting.
Nylon-strings are much easier to learn on than steel strings. I recommend starting with a classical guitar. If you already have an acoustic, by all means use it. If your fingers get too sore, you may want to try light-tension steel strings.
Yamahas and Takamines are quite nice. Their are several nice guitars coming out of Japan and Korea. You should be able to get a decent student guitar between $100-$200. They will be made with laminated woods.
At around $400 the tops are made from a solid piece of wood. Hence they are called "solid tops." Of course, they will sound better. At $1,000 expect to get a guitar with a solid top, solid side and solid back.
Personally, I play a Ramirez. They cost around $5,000.
For solid tops, the guitars from Spain are excellent. I like Esteve, but there are several brands that are quite good.
I think it's wise to start with a less expensive guitar and then go up as your level a playing and tonal awareness sharpens. Besides it's good to have an inexpensive guitar around to take to the beach, etc.
Yes, I recommend starting with a nylon string guitar. It's easier to play. A couple things to watch for are:
- Make sure the neck is straight and solid, and the body and neck are well connected. I've seen several cheap instruments where the neck was literally pulling away from the body.
- Take a business card and with it, see if there is any gap between the bridge and body. The bridge is the little strip of wood where the strings are tied. It's next to the sound hole. If you can fit a business card or piece of paper underneath, don't buy the instrument. It's too expensive to get it repaired.
- I usually play every note up the fretboard and check for "buzzes." Sometimes the frets need adjustment, or the neck is warped. Warped necks can’t be fixed and adjusting frets can be costly too.
- You may also want to see if the "machine heads" work. Those are the mechanical parts on the head of the instrument. If everything else is OK with the guitar, go ahead if they are broken. It's only about $12 to get new machine heads, and they're easy to install.
Used guitars range anywhere from $50 to hundreds. You may want to check with a local music store for the retail price of any particular instrument you're looking at, if you have the model number.
Yes, call or email me and I can give you all the details.
A semester is 75 hours. They can actually practice as little as half an hour a day to get the credit. A semester is usually 15 to 18 weeks. On the west coast we talk about 5 credits per class. On the east coast, one credit is the same as 5 credits on west coast.
Students learn at different rates and there isn't a certain credit per video as much as how much time the student plays. Some lessons are going to be easy and others may need to stay on for a couple of weeks.
7. The shipping costs vary from about $4.00 and up depending on your purchase. We do ship internationally. The shopping cart can automatically figure out the shipping. Your credit card is not charged before the window that shows shipping, so that's probably the easiest way to see it.
