Seeking resources for colorgrading as a ~total~ beginner

i work for a small business and we are wrapping up the editing of a kickstarter launch video. i'm about to start searching the internet and whatnot to brush up on how to do some color grading, but i thought I might as well ask on this forum too, are there any resources anyone would recommend for a crash course in color grading?

the basic idea is first match all clips to each other called a "one light" where everything is conformed out of RAW and looks similar.
Then a coloring stage to get the artistic look which can be almost anything. color, contrast, saturation, like magic bullet mojo or Technicolor. Basically the feel you want to convey. Here is a simple 3 step process to initially match all the editing clips to a standard candle in premiere, although it should be pretty similar in any NLE with scopes. Remember to calibrate your monitor so that you get a consistent look.
