Marlene’s Story

Marlene Hutchinson, guitar instructor, musician, published author, producer and founder of Marlene’s Music, developed a simple method of learning to play guitar that has influenced and inspired guitarists around the world!

Marlene’s interest in music began in her youth; she learned to play piano and clarinet, and loved to sing. However she didn’t learn to play guitar until she was an adult. It was her 2002 New Year’s resolution. She found a group lesson and from the first strum knew she had found her life’s passion. A year later friends asked her to teach them to play guitar; so in 2003, she created her signature method and began teaching guitar lessons.

In 2009, she developed and launched her popular Learn to Play Guitar in a Day!® workshop which has been seen by millions on PBS. It has also been featured on CBS, NBC, NPR, Acoustic Guitar, Making Music Magazine, the Women’s International Music Network, several news publications and is a 2014 Player’s Choice Award nominee. In addition, Marlene has been a spokesperson and clinician for GAMA and is a proud member of NAMM.

Hutchinson recently debuted her new book, Marlene’s Tips for Guitar Playing Success, which includes more than 150 practical guitar playing ideas and helpful hints. In 2018, Marlene will launch her Corporate Workshops which are designed to bring the numerous benefits of playing guitar into the workplace.
