Guitar Teacher Combines Christian Music With Guitar Training to Build Up Worship Services Worldwide



Los Angeles, CA – October 23, 2009 Jean Welles has a dream. She has dedicated her energy to helping Christians around the world draw closer to our God through helping to train up new worship leaders. Just in time for Christmas, She has released a new course which helps guitar players of all levels with their finger picking skills.

Welles, who graduated with a Masters Degree in Guitar Performance from USC, has been teaching guitar for over 30 years. In 2001, she made her technique available to a wider group and released the first Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class™ video.

’Our courses are now in around 1500 stores and 56 countries that I know of,’ says Welles. Her series of DVDs and videos are designed to help individuals and families quickly learn how to play the guitar in the comfort of their own homes.

At the heart of all of her work, Welles says, is her commitment to Christ. In addition to teaching and coaching guitar players all over the world, she is a worship leader in the Los Angeles area, and her video series has been used by hundreds of churches to train new worship leaders. By combining popular Worship, excellent technique and step-by-step instruction, Welles has helped tens of thousands of people explore new ways of incorporating music into their worship.

The newest addition to the Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class™ series is a new book and DVD entitled ’Mastering Finger Picking.’ This course includes all-new material and is designed to help worship guitar students of all levels improve their finger picking skills.

Welles explains, ’The new course is easy enough for a newer player to learn from, and will also be beneficial for people who have been playing the guitar for many years.’
The course centers around honing one’s finger picking technique through exercises, and then progresses into song accompaniments and solos. Included are Christmas songs, classical pieces, Christian hymns and even a flamenco solo.

The book and DVD are available now.

A worship leader and guitar coach in the greater Los Angeles area, Jean Welles has been responsible for helping over 100,000 people learn to play the guitar for worship. In addition to the Jean Welles Worship Guitar Class™ series, Ms. Welles sponsors yearly worship songwriting contests for both children and adults. This year’s contest will be held in November.
