Why this course is the best method for you?



Master chords much faster!
We all know mastering chords is one of the challenging task for a beginner. Usually, either your fingers are too painful or it just doesn’t sound pleasant to enjoy your practices. Therefore, we developed our unique 2-min system, complete with audio tracks and have since helped all our students to ease this process effectively.
With this chord mastery system, your practices start to get more enjoyable and effective!

Playing Patterns made easy yet dynamic.
Face the issue of not knowing what to strum or pluck? No worries, we’ve categorized many strumming or plucking patterns in a systematic manner for you. Each pattern consists of several styles where you can improvise them dynamically. We’ve also associated them with pop song examples, which makes it very relatable.
Soon, you’ll develop the sense of groove with this system & start playing intuitively without scores!

Express the Creativity in you.
Don't get obsessed with precision and instructions. It is time to get fun! We encourage creativity and want you to improvise a little. Just like many cover songs you hear over Youtube. This helps to maintain a high interest level to continue your passion. Experience endless things you can do!

Play songs you like!
Everyone feel motivated to practise on songs we like, don’t we? We don’t believe you need to start with kiddies’ songs, just because you are a beginner. At Hark Music, start right away by playing pop songs! Songs from Pink, Jay Chou, Wang Lee Hom, Taylor Swift and many more! We know it is highly important to make the learning process fun & enjoyable so that you are motivated to play more.

With our proven system, we have witnessed many achieving the ability to play a pop song in just 1 month.

It's time you do too!
