Who founded Laughing Camel?
Gerald left his office cubicle behind to play guitar and to travel the world. He started teaching guitar and became inspired by watching the children he taught grow from little wannabe rock stars to full-sized guitar heroes.
Gerald noticed that online classes were growing in popularity. But prospective online teachers had many hurdles to clear. They had to set up websites, teleconference technologies, payment gateways, business management systems, the list goes on … and then they finally had to try to attract students. Laughing Camel solves all this by providing an online marketplace for students and teachers. http://www.laughingcamel.net makes it easier than ever to learn and teach guitar.

Life may be complicated, but finding a time and place to enjoy a guitar lesson doesn’t have to be. That’s what Laughing Camel is about.
