Hi there. We’re Jamorama… well… the people behind Jamorama. You know, the one’s who teach and film the lessons… make the web pages… make the coffees… and pay the wages…
Our company is actually called Rock Star Recipes Ltd. and we’re based in Christchurch, New Zealand.
We’ve been publishing music lessons since waaaay back in 2003… which makes us the first company in New Zealand to ever do such a thing… and the third guitar lessons website to ever exist in the ENTIRE WORLD!
In 2005 we teamed up with 20 year veteran guitar teacher, and New Zealand Army Band Guitarist, Mark McKenzie, to help him create his YouTube channel and the current version of the Jamorama Guitar System.
Mark has since become a YouTube celebrity with over 2 million people having watched his videos, and the new Jamorama Guitar System has been used by 30,000+ people worldwide, to explode their guitar skills and take their playing to the next level.
Oh, and we’ve won a few awards and had some press…
