How to Break out of the Box
Dr. Molly Miller
In this comprehensive, college-level Master Class, Dr. Molly Miller teaches you her proven method to map out your fretboard and express yourself on the guitar in any key. The class is designed to help you break out of “playing plateaus” and is perfect for intermediate guitarists who feel stuck in their playing.
How to Break out of the Box focuses on the CAGED system, the numbers system, and why learning triads in every string set is the best method for connecting the fretboard. You’ll learn how to visualize your entire fretboard by mapping out familiar triadic shapes across every string and in every position.
Dr. Molly Miller has a remarkable resume as a professional guitarist. She has performed, toured, and recorded with the likes of Jason Mraz, Black Eyed Peas, Donna Missal, Morgxn, and Kenton Chen, with performances at legendary venues like the Hollywood Bowl, Royal Albert Hall, Coachella, Red Rocks Amphitheatre, and Walt Disney Concert Hall.
Molly graduated with a Doctorate in Guitar Performance from the University of Southern California’s Thornton School of Music and currently leads the guitar department at Los Angeles College of Music. She also plays in the house band on The Bachelor’s newest ABC primetime show, Listen To Your Heart. When Molly isn’t on tour, running a collegiate guitar department, or creating in the studio, she fronts her own band, Molly Miller Trio, which has been featured on NPR’s Fresh Air.
